Anyone can hold the helm when the sea is calm.
The most dangerous leadership myth is that leaders are born-that there is a genetic factor to leadership. That’s nonsense; in fact, the opposite is true. Leaders are made rather than born.
Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others.
A leader takes people where they want to go. A great leader takes people where they don’t necessarily want to go, but ought to be.
Leadership cannot just go along to get along. Leadership must meet the moral challenge of the day.
Τα αποφθέγματα είναι ο σύντομος δρόμος προς πολλή γνώση
No man will make a great leader who wants to do it all himself, or to get all the credit for doing it.
The supreme quality of leadership is integrity.
A ruler should be slow to punish and swift to reward.
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.
