Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.
John F. Kennedy
He who has never learned to obey cannot be a good commander.
The art of leadership is saying no, not saying yes. It is very easy to say yes.
A good leader is a person who takes a little more than his share of the blame and a little less than his share of the credit.
Leadership cannot just go along to get along. Leadership must meet the moral challenge of the day.
I start with the premise that the function of leadership is to produce more leaders, not more followers.
I am reminded how hollow the label of leadership sometimes is and how heroic followership can be.
A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.
The first responsibility of a leader is to define reality. The last is to say thank you. In between, the leader is a servant.
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.
