Management is about arranging and telling. Leadership is about nurturing and enhancing.
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.
I start with the premise that the function of leadership is to produce more leaders, not more followers.
The leader has to be practical and a realist yet must talk the language of the visionary and the idealist.
Where there is no vision, the people perish.
Τα αποφθέγματα είναι ο σύντομος δρόμος προς πολλή γνώση
You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing you think you cannot do.
You manage things; you lead people.
Rear Admiral Grace Murray Hopper
Leadership cannot just go along to get along. Leadership must meet the moral challenge of the day.
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.
