Lead me, follow me, or get out of my way.
General George Patton
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.
A good plan violently executed now is better than a perfect plan executed next week.
Management is efficiency in climbing the ladder of success; leadership determines whether the ladder is leaning against the right wall.
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.
Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.
John F. Kennedy
In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock.
If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.
John Quincy Adams
The leader has to be practical and a realist yet must talk the language of the visionary and the idealist.
The art of leadership is saying no, not saying yes. It is very easy to say yes.
