Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality.
Leadership is a potent combination of strategy and character. But if you must be without one, be without the strategy.
Anyone can hold the helm when the sea is calm.
In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock.
Έστι δ’ η γνώμη απόφανσις περί των καθόλου και περί όσων αι πράξεις εισί, και αιρετά ή φευκτά εστι προς το πράττειν
Never give an order that can’t be obeyed.
General Douglas MacArthur
The best executive is the one who has sense enough to pick good men to do what he wants done, and self-restraint enough to keep from meddling with them while they do it.
Education is the mother of leadership.
Outstanding leaders go out of their way to boost the self-esteem of their personnel. If people believe in themselves, it’s amazing what they can accomplish.
Management is efficiency in climbing the ladder of success; leadership determines whether the ladder is leaning against the right wall.
