A leader is a dealer in hope.
A ruler should be slow to punish and swift to reward.
I start with the premise that the function of leadership is to produce more leaders, not more followers.
Don’t necessarily avoid sharp edges. Occasionally they are necessary to leadership.
A good plan violently executed now is better than a perfect plan executed next week.
Management is efficiency in climbing the ladder of success; leadership determines whether the ladder is leaning against the right wall.
Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity.
General George Patton
In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock.
The growth and development of people is the highest calling of leadership.
You don’t need a title to be a leader.
