You manage things; you lead people.
Rear Admiral Grace Murray Hopper
Management is efficiency in climbing the ladder of success; leadership determines whether the ladder is leaning against the right wall.
What you do has far greater impact than what you say.
Earn your leadership every day.
Leaders aren’t born, they are made. And they are made just like anything else, through hard work. And that’s the price we’ll have to pay to achieve that goal, or any goal.
You don’t lead by hitting people over the head that’s assault, not leadership.
The challenge of leadership is to be strong, but not rude; be kind, but not weak; be bold, but not bully; be thoughtful, but not lazy; be humble, but not timid; be proud, but not arrogant; have humor, but without folly.
Effective leadership is putting first things first. Effective management is discipline, carrying it out.
Do what you feel in your heart to be right–for you’ll be criticized anyway.
Become the kind of leader that people would follow voluntarily; even if you had no title or position.
