To have long term success as a coach or in any position of leadership, you have to be obsessed in some way.
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.
It is absurd that a man should rule others, who cannot rule himself.
He who has great power should use it lightly.
A leader takes people where they want to go. A great leader takes people where they don’t necessarily want to go, but ought to be.
I start with the premise that the function of leadership is to produce more leaders, not more followers.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, concerned citizens can change world. Indeed it is the only thing that ever has.
The best executive is the one who has sense enough to pick good men to do what he wants done, and self-restraint enough to keep from meddling with them while they do it.
Don’t necessarily avoid sharp edges. Occasionally they are necessary to leadership.
Lead and inspire people. Don’t try to manage and manipulate people. Inventories can be managed but people must be lead.
