Γνώμαι σοφών αρετήν πλουτίζουσιν
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.
Leaders think and talk about the solutions. Followers think and talk about the problems.
Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others.
Education is the mother of leadership.
The very essence of leadership is that you have to have a vision. It’s got to be a vision you articulate clearly and forcefully on every occasion. You can’t blow an uncertain trumpet.
Reverend Theodore Hesburgh
I cannot give you the formula for success, but I can give you the formula for failure, which is: Try to please everybody.
Leadership is unlocking people’s potential to become better.
The art of leadership is saying no, not saying yes. It is very easy to say yes.
I start with the premise that the function of leadership is to produce more leaders, not more followers.
