Γνώμαι σοφών αρετήν πλουτίζουσιν
Great leaders are almost always great simplifiers, who can cut through argument, debate, and doubt to offer a solution everybody can understand.
General Colin Powell
When I give a minister an order, I leave it to him to find the means to carry it out.
In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock.
All of the great leaders have had one characteristic in common: it was the willingness to confront unequivocally the major anxiety of their people in their time. This, and not much else, is the essence of leadership.
John Kenneth Galbraith
People buy into the leader before they buy into the vision.
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.
Earn your leadership every day.
Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality.
A good plan violently executed now is better than a perfect plan executed next week.
