To have long term success as a coach or in any position of leadership, you have to be obsessed in some way.
Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity.
General George Patton
Effective leadership is not about making speeches or being liked; leadership is defined by results not attributes.
The first responsibility of a leader is to define reality. The last is to say thank you. In between, the leader is a servant.
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
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.
True leadership lies in guiding others to success. In ensuring that everyone is performing at their best, doing the work they are pledged to do and doing it well.
Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality.
A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves.
Management is efficiency in climbing the ladder of success; leadership determines whether the ladder is leaning against the right wall.
