You don’t need a title to be a leader.
Effective leadership is not about making speeches or being liked; leadership is defined by results not attributes.
Earn your leadership every day.
Don’t necessarily avoid sharp edges. Occasionally they are necessary to leadership.
The very essence of leadership is that you have to have a vision. It’s got to be a vision you articulate clearly and forcefully on every occasion. You can’t blow an uncertain trumpet.
Reverend Theodore Hesburgh
Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity.
General George Patton

He who has learned how to obey will know how to command.
He who has great power should use it lightly.
Do what you feel in your heart to be right–for you’ll be criticized anyway.
