To do great things is difficult; but to command great things is more difficult.
Leadership is lifting a person’s vision to high sights, the raising of a person’s performance to a higher standard, the building of a personality beyond its normal limitations.
The first responsibility of a leader is to define reality. The last is to say thank you. In between, the leader is a servant.
My responsibility is getting all my players playing for the name on the front of the jersey, not the one on the back.
When I give a minister an order, I leave it to him to find the means to carry it out.
Leaders think and talk about the solutions. Followers think and talk about the problems.
Management is efficiency in climbing the ladder of success; leadership determines whether the ladder is leaning against the right wall.
Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity.
General George Patton
Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality.
People buy into the leader before they buy into the vision.
