A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.
Become the kind of leader that people would follow voluntarily; even if you had no title or position.
He who has learned how to obey will know how to command.
Έστι δ’ η γνώμη απόφανσις περί των καθόλου και περί όσων αι πράξεις εισί, και αιρετά ή φευκτά εστι προς το πράττειν
In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock.
Where there is no vision, the people perish.
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
Ήκιστα πόλεμος επί ρητοίς χωρεί
To command is to serve, nothing more and nothing less.
Leaders think and talk about the solutions. Followers think and talk about the problems.
