Where there is no vision, the people perish.
Ήκιστα πόλεμος επί ρητοίς χωρεί
The leader has to be practical and a realist yet must talk the language of the visionary and the idealist.
To have long term success as a coach or in any position of leadership, you have to be obsessed in some way.
I cannot give you the formula for success, but I can give you the formula for failure, which is: Try to please everybody.
The growth and development of people is the highest calling of leadership.
A competent leader can get efficient service from poor troops, while on the contrary an incapable leader can demoralize the best of troops.
John J Pershing
So much of what we call management consists in making it difficult for people to work.
Τας δε των σοφών ανδρών γνώμας αρετή πλουτίζειν τους κεκτημένους
It is absurd that a man should rule others, who cannot rule himself.
