Leaders must be close enough to relate to others, but far enough ahead to motivate them.
John C. Maxwell
Anyone can hold the helm when the sea is calm.
There are three essentials to leadership: humility, clarity and courage.
A man who wants to lead the orchestra must turn his back on the crowd.
Where there is no vision, the people perish.
Effective leadership is putting first things first. Effective management is discipline, carrying it out.
One of the tests of leadership is the ability to recognize a problem before it becomes an emergency.
