Do what you feel in your heart to be right–for you’ll be criticized anyway.
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.
One of the tests of leadership is the ability to recognize a problem before it becomes an emergency.
So much of what we call management consists in making it difficult for people to work.
He who has great power should use it lightly.
To do great things is difficult; but to command great things is more difficult.
Where there is no vision, the people perish.
Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.
John F. Kennedy
Management is efficiency in climbing the ladder of success; leadership determines whether the ladder is leaning against the right wall.
It is better to lead from behind and to put others in front, especially when you celebrate victory when nice things occur. You take the front line when there is danger. Then people will appreciate your leadership.
