The nation will find it very hard to look up to the leaders who are keeping their ears to the ground.
Sir Winston Churchill
If you would not be forgotten, as soon as you are dead and rotten, either write things worth reading, or do things worth the writing.
Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.
John F. Kennedy
Never give an order that can’t be obeyed.
General Douglas MacArthur
My own definition of leadership is this: The capacity and the will to rally men and women to a common purpose and the character which inspires confidence.
Effective leadership is putting first things first. Effective management is discipline, carrying it out.
Το λακωνίζειν εστί φιλοσοφείν
You manage things; you lead people.
Rear Admiral Grace Murray Hopper
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.
If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.
John Quincy Adams
