A great person attracts great people and knows how to hold them together.
Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
You don’t lead by hitting people over the head that’s assault, not leadership.
True leadership lies in guiding others to success. In ensuring that everyone is performing at their best, doing the work they are pledged to do and doing it well.
A competent leader can get efficient service from poor troops, while on the contrary an incapable leader can demoralize the best of troops.
John J Pershing
Effective leadership is not about making speeches or being liked; leadership is defined by results not attributes.
The final test of a leader is that he leaves behind him in other men, the conviction and the will to carry on.
Leadership is influence.
John C. Maxwell
Το λακωνίζειν εστί φιλοσοφείν
Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality.
The first responsibility of a leader is to define reality. The last is to say thank you. In between, the leader is a servant.
