He who has never learned to obey cannot be a good commander.
We live in a society obsessed with public opinion. But leadership has never been about popularity.
If one is lucky, a solitary fantasy can totally transform one million realities.
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.
True leadership lies in guiding others to success. In ensuring that everyone is performing at their best, doing the work they are pledged to do and doing it well.
A competent leader can get efficient service from poor troops, while on the contrary an incapable leader can demoralize the best of troops.
John J Pershing
Never give an order that can’t be obeyed.
General Douglas MacArthur
You don’t need a title to be a leader.
Effective leadership is putting first things first. Effective management is discipline, carrying it out.
Leadership does not always wear the harness of compromise.
