You don’t lead by pointing and telling people some place to go. You lead by going to that place and making a case.
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
Management is efficiency in climbing the ladder of success; leadership determines whether the ladder is leaning against the right wall.
As we look ahead into the next century, leaders will be those who empower others.
The challenge of leadership is to be strong, but not rude; be kind, but not weak; be bold, but not bully; be thoughtful, but not lazy; be humble, but not timid; be proud, but not arrogant; have humor, but without folly.
Leaders must be close enough to relate to others, but far enough ahead to motivate them.
John C. Maxwell
A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.
Leadership is unlocking people’s potential to become better.
A good leader is a person who takes a little more than his share of the blame and a little less than his share of the credit.
My responsibility is getting all my players playing for the name on the front of the jersey, not the one on the back.
