You manage things; you lead people.
Rear Admiral Grace Murray Hopper
My responsibility is getting all my players playing for the name on the front of the jersey, not the one on the back.
He who has great power should use it lightly.
Never give an order that can’t be obeyed.
General Douglas MacArthur
Έστι δ’ η γνώμη απόφανσις περί των καθόλου και περί όσων αι πράξεις εισί, και αιρετά ή φευκτά εστι προς το πράττειν
All of the great leaders have had one characteristic in common: it was the willingness to confront unequivocally the major anxiety of their people in their time. This, and not much else, is the essence of leadership.
John Kenneth Galbraith
People buy into the leader before they buy into the vision.
A leader is a dealer in hope.
It is better to lead from behind and to put others in front, especially when you celebrate victory when nice things occur. You take the front line when there is danger. Then people will appreciate your leadership.
Effective leadership is putting first things first. Effective management is discipline, carrying it out.
