It is better to lead from behind and to put others in front, especially when you celebrate victory when nice things occur. You take the front line when there is danger. Then people will appreciate your leadership.
Effective leadership is not about making speeches or being liked; leadership is defined by results not attributes.
One of the tests of leadership is the ability to recognize a problem before it becomes an emergency.
Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality.
Never give an order that can’t be obeyed.
General Douglas MacArthur
Γνώμαι σοφών αρετήν πλουτίζουσιν
Leadership cannot just go along to get along. Leadership must meet the moral challenge of the day.
Lead me, follow me, or get out of my way.
General George Patton

The art of leadership is saying no, not saying yes. It is very easy to say yes.
