Lead and inspire people. Don’t try to manage and manipulate people. Inventories can be managed but people must be lead.
A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves.
To do great things is difficult; but to command great things is more difficult.
A good plan violently executed now is better than a perfect plan executed next week.
He who has learned how to obey will know how to command.
A leader is a dealer in hope.
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.
Education is the mother of leadership.
I am endlessly fascinated that playing football is considered a training ground for leadership, but raising children isn’t.
Dee Dee Myers
To command is to serve, nothing more and nothing less.
