To command is to serve, nothing more and nothing less.
To have long term success as a coach or in any position of leadership, you have to be obsessed in some way.
Leadership is a potent combination of strategy and character. But if you must be without one, be without the strategy.
The first responsibility of a leader is to define reality. The last is to say thank you. In between, the leader is a servant.
Leadership is unlocking people’s potential to become better.
Don’t necessarily avoid sharp edges. Occasionally they are necessary to leadership.
Management is about arranging and telling. Leadership is about nurturing and enhancing.
A competent leader can get efficient service from poor troops, while on the contrary an incapable leader can demoralize the best of troops.
John J Pershing
The art of leadership is saying no, not saying yes. It is very easy to say yes.
Education is the mother of leadership.
