All of the great leaders have had one characteristic in common: it was the willingness to confront unequivocally the major anxiety of their people in their time. This, and not much else, is the essence of leadership.
John Kenneth Galbraith
A man who wants to lead the orchestra must turn his back on the crowd.
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.
Education is the mother of leadership.
You don’t lead by hitting people over the head that’s assault, not leadership.
A great person attracts great people and knows how to hold them together.
Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
He who has never learned to obey cannot be a good commander.
So much of what we call management consists in making it difficult for people to work.
A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.
Not the cry, but the flight of a wild duck, leads the flock to fly and follow.
