Never give an order that can’t be obeyed.
General Douglas MacArthur
The first responsibility of a leader is to define reality. The last is to say thank you. In between, the leader is a servant.
The final test of a leader is that he leaves behind him in other men, the conviction and the will to carry on.
Έστι δ’ η γνώμη απόφανσις περί των καθόλου και περί όσων αι πράξεις εισί, και αιρετά ή φευκτά εστι προς το πράττειν
The nation will find it very hard to look up to the leaders who are keeping their ears to the ground.
Sir Winston Churchill
No man is good enough to govern another man without that other’s consent.
Anyone can hold the helm when the sea is calm.
Leadership does not always wear the harness of compromise.
Great leaders are not defined by the absence of weakness, but rather by the presence of clear strengths.
