I start with the premise that the function of leadership is to produce more leaders, not more followers.
I am endlessly fascinated that playing football is considered a training ground for leadership, but raising children isn’t.
Dee Dee Myers
Where there is no vision, the people perish.
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.
A man who wants to lead the orchestra must turn his back on the crowd.
You don’t lead by pointing and telling people some place to go. You lead by going to that place and making a case.
Great leaders are not defined by the absence of weakness, but rather by the presence of clear strengths.
A great leader’s courage to fulfill his vision comes from passion, not position.
If one is lucky, a solitary fantasy can totally transform one million realities.
To command is to serve, nothing more and nothing less.
