The supreme quality of leadership is integrity.
Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality.
A cowardly leader is the most dangerous of men.
The first responsibility of a leader is to define reality. The last is to say thank you. In between, the leader is a servant.
Ήκιστα πόλεμος επί ρητοίς χωρεί
People buy into the leader before they buy into the vision.
Leaders think and talk about the solutions. Followers think and talk about the problems.
So much of what we call management consists in making it difficult for people to work.
A good general not only sees the way to victory; he also knows when victory is impossible.
The final test of a leader is that he leaves behind him in other men, the conviction and the will to carry on.
