Τας δε των σοφών ανδρών γνώμας αρετή πλουτίζειν τους κεκτημένους
Never give an order that can’t be obeyed.
General Douglas MacArthur
Effective leadership is putting first things first. Effective management is discipline, carrying it out.
Ήκιστα πόλεμος επί ρητοίς χωρεί
The art of leadership is saying no, not saying yes. It is very easy to say yes.
Έστι δ’ η γνώμη απόφανσις περί των καθόλου και περί όσων αι πράξεις εισί, και αιρετά ή φευκτά εστι προς το πράττειν
Effective leadership is not about making speeches or being liked; leadership is defined by results not attributes.
Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others.
To do great things is difficult; but to command great things is more difficult.
He who has great power should use it lightly.
