Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity.
General George Patton
One of the tests of leadership is the ability to recognize a problem before it becomes an emergency.
Not the cry, but the flight of a wild duck, leads the flock to fly and follow.
Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality.
Leaders aren’t born, they are made. And they are made just like anything else, through hard work. And that’s the price we’ll have to pay to achieve that goal, or any goal.
Men make history and not the other way around. In periods where there is no leadership, society stands still. Progress occurs when courageous, skillful leaders seize the opportunity to change things for the better.
Harry S. Truman
Effective leadership is putting first things first. Effective management is discipline, carrying it out.
Education is the mother of leadership.
Where there is no vision, the people perish.
When I give a minister an order, I leave it to him to find the means to carry it out.
