I start with the premise that the function of leadership is to produce more leaders, not more followers.          

Ralph Nader

Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity.          

General George Patton

Earn your leadership every day.          

Michael Jordan

True leadership lies in guiding others to success. In ensuring that everyone is performing at their best, doing the work they are pledged to do and doing it well.          

Bill Owens

A man who wants to lead the orchestra must turn his back on the crowd.          

Max Lucado

A good general not only sees the way to victory; he also knows when victory is impossible.          


Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, concerned citizens can change world. Indeed it is the only thing that ever has.          

Margaret Mead

Management is about arranging and telling. Leadership is about nurturing and enhancing.          

Tom Peters

My responsibility is getting all my players playing for the name on the front of the jersey, not the one on the back.          


So much of what we call management consists in making it difficult for people to work.
