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.
When I give a minister an order, I leave it to him to find the means to carry it out.
Don’t necessarily avoid sharp edges. Occasionally they are necessary to leadership.
Ήκιστα πόλεμος επί ρητοίς χωρεί
Outstanding leaders go out of their way to boost the self-esteem of their personnel. If people believe in themselves, it’s amazing what they can accomplish.
The growth and development of people is the highest calling of leadership.
A leader takes people where they want to go. A great leader takes people where they don’t necessarily want to go, but ought to be.
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
I must follow the people. Am I not their leader?
