Leaders think and talk about the solutions. Followers think and talk about the problems.
Do what you feel in your heart to be right–for you’ll be criticized anyway.
Ρήμα παράκαιρον τον όλον ανατρέπει βίον
Μένανδρος (Γνωμ. Μον.)
Γνώμαι σοφών αρετήν πλουτίζουσιν
The final test of a leader is that he leaves behind him in other men, the conviction and the will to carry on.
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
The growth and development of people is the highest calling of leadership.
You don’t need a title to be a leader.
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.
Leadership is the art of getting someone else to do something you want done because he wants to do it.
General Dwight Eisenhower
