Management is efficiency in climbing the ladder of success; leadership determines whether the ladder is leaning against the right wall.
To do great things is difficult; but to command great things is more difficult.
The leader has to be practical and a realist yet must talk the language of the visionary and the idealist.
Leaders think and talk about the solutions. Followers think and talk about the problems.
A leader takes people where they want to go. A great leader takes people where they don’t necessarily want to go, but ought to be.
A great person attracts great people and knows how to hold them together.
Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, concerned citizens can change world. Indeed it is the only thing that ever has.
Leadership is the key to 99 percent of all successful efforts.
I start with the premise that the function of leadership is to produce more leaders, not more followers.
The very essence of leadership is that you have to have a vision. It’s got to be a vision you articulate clearly and forcefully on every occasion. You can’t blow an uncertain trumpet.
Reverend Theodore Hesburgh
