Ρήμα παράκαιρον τον όλον ανατρέπει βίον
Μένανδρος (Γνωμ. Μον.)
The nation will find it very hard to look up to the leaders who are keeping their ears to the ground.
Sir Winston Churchill
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.
Το λακωνίζειν εστί φιλοσοφείν
Leadership is lifting a person’s vision to high sights, the raising of a person’s performance to a higher standard, the building of a personality beyond its normal limitations.
Become the kind of leader that people would follow voluntarily; even if you had no title or position.
If you would not be forgotten, as soon as you are dead and rotten, either write things worth reading, or do things worth the writing.
All of the great leaders have had one characteristic in common: it was the willingness to confront unequivocally the major anxiety of their people in their time. This, and not much else, is the essence of leadership.
John Kenneth Galbraith
To have long term success as a coach or in any position of leadership, you have to be obsessed in some way.
A cowardly leader is the most dangerous of men.
