So much of what we call management consists in making it difficult for people to work.
To command is to serve, nothing more and nothing less.
A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves.
Management is efficiency in climbing the ladder of success; leadership determines whether the ladder is leaning against the right wall.
He who has great power should use it lightly.
People buy into the leader before they buy into the vision.
The art of leadership is saying no, not saying yes. It is very easy to say yes.
Management is about arranging and telling. Leadership is about nurturing and enhancing.
One of the tests of leadership is the ability to recognize a problem before it becomes an emergency.
True leadership lies in guiding others to success. In ensuring that everyone is performing at their best, doing the work they are pledged to do and doing it well.
