As we look ahead into the next century, leaders will be those who empower others.
Leadership is the key to 99 percent of all successful efforts.
All of the great leaders have had one characteristic in common: it was the willingness to confront unequivocally the major anxiety of their people in their time. This, and not much else, is the essence of leadership.
John Kenneth Galbraith
Management is efficiency in climbing the ladder of success; leadership determines whether the ladder is leaning against the right wall.
My own definition of leadership is this: The capacity and the will to rally men and women to a common purpose and the character which inspires confidence.
Great leaders are not defined by the absence of weakness, but rather by the presence of clear strengths.
Γνώμαι σοφών αρετήν πλουτίζουσιν
He who has great power should use it lightly.
Ανάγκη μεγάλων γνωμών και διανοιών, ίσα και τα ρήματα τίκτει
The greatest leaders mobilize others by coalescing people around a shared vision.
