What you do has far greater impact than what you say.
The supreme quality of leadership is integrity.
Ρήμα παράκαιρον τον όλον ανατρέπει βίον
Μένανδρος (Γνωμ. Μον.)
Great leaders are not defined by the absence of weakness, but rather by the presence of clear strengths.
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.
Men make history and not the other way around. In periods where there is no leadership, society stands still. Progress occurs when courageous, skillful leaders seize the opportunity to change things for the better.
Harry S. Truman
Where there is no vision, the people perish.
Leaders must be close enough to relate to others, but far enough ahead to motivate them.
John C. Maxwell
The leader has to be practical and a realist yet must talk the language of the visionary and the idealist.
So much of what we call management consists in making it difficult for people to work.
