Management is about arranging and telling. Leadership is about nurturing and enhancing.
A man who wants to lead the orchestra must turn his back on the crowd.
Leadership does not always wear the harness of compromise.
Lead me, follow me, or get out of my way.
General George Patton
If you would not be forgotten, as soon as you are dead and rotten, either write things worth reading, or do things worth the writing.
Become the kind of leader that people would follow voluntarily; even if you had no title or position.
No man will make a great leader who wants to do it all himself, or to get all the credit for doing it.
People buy into the leader before they buy into the vision.
I start with the premise that the function of leadership is to produce more leaders, not more followers.
There are three essentials to leadership: humility, clarity and courage.
