Never give an order that can’t be obeyed.
General Douglas MacArthur
The art of leadership is saying no, not saying yes. It is very easy to say yes.
Do what you feel in your heart to be right–for you’ll be criticized anyway.
Έστι δ’ η γνώμη απόφανσις περί των καθόλου και περί όσων αι πράξεις εισί, και αιρετά ή φευκτά εστι προς το πράττειν
I must follow the people. Am I not their leader?
Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others.
My responsibility is getting all my players playing for the name on the front of the jersey, not the one on the back.
The greatest leaders mobilize others by coalescing people around a shared vision.
Effective leadership is not about making speeches or being liked; leadership is defined by results not attributes.
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.
