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.
To have long term success as a coach or in any position of leadership, you have to be obsessed in some way.
He who has great power should use it lightly.
Management is about arranging and telling. Leadership is about nurturing and enhancing.
Leaders must be close enough to relate to others, but far enough ahead to motivate them.
John C. Maxwell
A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves.
The most dangerous leadership myth is that leaders are born-that there is a genetic factor to leadership. That’s nonsense; in fact, the opposite is true. Leaders are made rather than born.
Leadership does not always wear the harness of compromise.
Lead me, follow me, or get out of my way.
General George Patton
What you do has far greater impact than what you say.
