Never give an order that can’t be obeyed.
General Douglas MacArthur
Management is about arranging and telling. Leadership is about nurturing and enhancing.
Men make history and not the other way around. In periods where there is no leadership, society stands still. Progress occurs when courageous, skillful leaders seize the opportunity to change things for the better.
Harry S. Truman
In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock.
One of the tests of leadership is the ability to recognize a problem before it becomes an emergency.
Whatever you are, be a good one.
Anyone can hold the helm when the sea is calm.
You don’t lead by hitting people over the head that’s assault, not leadership.
He who has learned how to obey will know how to command.
I am endlessly fascinated that playing football is considered a training ground for leadership, but raising children isn’t.
