I am endlessly fascinated that playing football is considered a training ground for leadership, but raising children isn’t.
Dee Dee Myers
The leader has to be practical and a realist yet must talk the language of the visionary and the idealist.
We live in a society obsessed with public opinion. But leadership has never been about popularity.
A good plan violently executed now is better than a perfect plan executed next week.
Τας δε των σοφών ανδρών γνώμας αρετή πλουτίζειν τους κεκτημένους
The best executive is the one who has sense enough to pick good men to do what he wants done, and self-restraint enough to keep from meddling with them while they do it.
Ανάγκη μεγάλων γνωμών και διανοιών, ίσα και τα ρήματα τίκτει
A leader is a dealer in hope.
People buy into the leader before they buy into the vision.
A good leader is a person who takes a little more than his share of the blame and a little less than his share of the credit.
