My responsibility is getting all my players playing for the name on the front of the jersey, not the one on the back.
What you do has far greater impact than what you say.
Τας δε των σοφών ανδρών γνώμας αρετή πλουτίζειν τους κεκτημένους
A great leader’s courage to fulfill his vision comes from passion, not position.
Great leaders are almost always great simplifiers, who can cut through argument, debate, and doubt to offer a solution everybody can understand.
General Colin Powell
People buy into the leader before they buy into the vision.
I start with the premise that the function of leadership is to produce more leaders, not more followers.
Leadership is lifting a person’s vision to high sights, the raising of a person’s performance to a higher standard, the building of a personality beyond its normal limitations.
Leadership cannot just go along to get along. Leadership must meet the moral challenge of the day.
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.
