A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.
I start with the premise that the function of leadership is to produce more leaders, not more followers.

Do what you feel in your heart to be right–for you’ll be criticized anyway.
Management is efficiency in climbing the ladder of success; leadership determines whether the ladder is leaning against the right wall.
When I give a minister an order, I leave it to him to find the means to carry it out.
No man is good enough to govern another man without that other’s consent.

Men make history and not the other way around. In periods where there is no leadership, society stands still. Progress occurs when courageous, skillful leaders seize the opportunity to change things for the better.
Harry S. Truman
