Leadership is the key to 99 percent of all successful efforts.
Don’t necessarily avoid sharp edges. Occasionally they are necessary to leadership.
You don’t lead by pointing and telling people some place to go. You lead by going to that place and making a case.
You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing you think you cannot do.
The greatest leaders mobilize others by coalescing people around a shared vision.
Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality.
To command is to serve, nothing more and nothing less.
The best executive is the one who has sense enough to pick good men to do what he wants done, and self-restraint enough to keep from meddling with them while they do it.
I am endlessly fascinated that playing football is considered a training ground for leadership, but raising children isn’t.
Dee Dee Myers
Leaders must be close enough to relate to others, but far enough ahead to motivate them.
