Leaders must be close enough to relate to others, but far enough ahead to motivate them.
John C. Maxwell

He who has learned how to obey will know how to command.
Lead me, follow me, or get out of my way.
General George Patton

There are three essentials to leadership: humility, clarity and courage.
A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.
