Outstanding leaders go out of their way to boost the self-esteem of their personnel. If people believe in themselves, it’s amazing what they can accomplish.
The greatest leaders mobilize others by coalescing people around a shared vision.
I must follow the people. Am I not their leader?
Lead and inspire people. Don’t try to manage and manipulate people. Inventories can be managed but people must be lead.
He who has great power should use it lightly.
So much of what we call management consists in making it difficult for people to work.
You manage things; you lead people.
Rear Admiral Grace Murray Hopper
Effective leadership is not about making speeches or being liked; leadership is defined by results not attributes.
Ρήμα παράκαιρον τον όλον ανατρέπει βίον
Μένανδρος (Γνωμ. Μον.)
The art of leadership is saying no, not saying yes. It is very easy to say yes.
