To have long term success as a coach or in any position of leadership, you have to be obsessed in some way.
A ruler should be slow to punish and swift to reward.
Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others.
The greatest leaders mobilize others by coalescing people around a shared vision.
Management is efficiency in climbing the ladder of success; leadership determines whether the ladder is leaning against the right wall.
I must follow the people. Am I not their leader?
A man who wants to lead the orchestra must turn his back on the crowd.
He who has learned how to obey will know how to command.
Lead me, follow me, or get out of my way.
General George Patton
Great leaders are almost always great simplifiers, who can cut through argument, debate, and doubt to offer a solution everybody can understand.
General Colin Powell
