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.
Γνώμαι σοφών αρετήν πλουτίζουσιν
Leaders aren’t born, they are made. And they are made just like anything else, through hard work. And that’s the price we’ll have to pay to achieve that goal, or any goal.
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.
True leadership lies in guiding others to success. In ensuring that everyone is performing at their best, doing the work they are pledged to do and doing it well.
The art of leadership is saying no, not saying yes. It is very easy to say yes.
No man will make a great leader who wants to do it all himself, or to get all the credit for doing it.
If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.
John Quincy Adams
My responsibility is getting all my players playing for the name on the front of the jersey, not the one on the back.
Management is efficiency in climbing the ladder of success; leadership determines whether the ladder is leaning against the right wall.
