To have long term success as a coach or in any position of leadership, you have to be obsessed in some way.
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
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.
Earn your leadership every day.
What you do has far greater impact than what you say.
Ρήμα παράκαιρον τον όλον ανατρέπει βίον
Μένανδρος (Γνωμ. Μον.)
A great person attracts great people and knows how to hold them together.
Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
He who has learned how to obey will know how to command.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, concerned citizens can change world. Indeed it is the only thing that ever has.
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.
