Not the cry, but the flight of a wild duck, leads the flock to fly and follow.
When I give a minister an order, I leave it to him to find the means to carry it out.
Ανάγκη μεγάλων γνωμών και διανοιών, ίσα και τα ρήματα τίκτει
The challenge of leadership is to be strong, but not rude; be kind, but not weak; be bold, but not bully; be thoughtful, but not lazy; be humble, but not timid; be proud, but not arrogant; have humor, but without folly.
Effective leadership is putting first things first. Effective management is discipline, carrying it out.
The nation will find it very hard to look up to the leaders who are keeping their ears to the ground.
Sir Winston Churchill
You don’t lead by hitting people over the head that’s assault, not leadership.
The first responsibility of a leader is to define reality. The last is to say thank you. In between, the leader is a servant.
If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.
John Quincy Adams
A good general not only sees the way to victory; he also knows when victory is impossible.
