As we look ahead into the next century, leaders will be those who empower others.
I am endlessly fascinated that playing football is considered a training ground for leadership, but raising children isn’t.
Dee Dee Myers
Management is about arranging and telling. Leadership is about nurturing and enhancing.
The final test of a leader is that he leaves behind him in other men, the conviction and the will to carry on.
Effective leadership is putting first things first. Effective management is discipline, carrying it out.
A good general not only sees the way to victory; he also knows when victory is impossible.
There are three essentials to leadership: humility, clarity and courage.
The challenge of leadership is to be strong, but not rude; be kind, but not weak; be bold, but not bully; be thoughtful, but not lazy; be humble, but not timid; be proud, but not arrogant; have humor, but without folly.
Leaders must be close enough to relate to others, but far enough ahead to motivate them.
John C. Maxwell
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, concerned citizens can change world. Indeed it is the only thing that ever has.
