Ρήμα παράκαιρον τον όλον ανατρέπει βίον
Μένανδρος (Γνωμ. Μον.)
Not the cry, but the flight of a wild duck, leads the flock to fly and follow.
Leadership is a potent combination of strategy and character. But if you must be without one, be without the strategy.
Great leaders are not defined by the absence of weakness, but rather by the presence of clear strengths.
He who has learned how to obey will know how to command.
Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity.
General George Patton
Leadership is influence.
John C. Maxwell
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
So much of what we call management consists in making it difficult for people to work.
The final test of a leader is that he leaves behind him in other men, the conviction and the will to carry on.
