Management is efficiency in climbing the ladder of success; leadership determines whether the ladder is leaning against the right wall.
Leadership is influence.
John C. Maxwell
Ρήμα παράκαιρον τον όλον ανατρέπει βίον
Μένανδρος (Γνωμ. Μον.)
Leadership is the art of getting someone else to do something you want done because he wants to do it.
General Dwight Eisenhower
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.
Effective leadership is putting first things first. Effective management is discipline, carrying it out.
You don’t need a title to be a leader.
The final test of a leader is that he leaves behind him in other men, the conviction and the will to carry on.
Do what you feel in your heart to be right–for you’ll be criticized anyway.
The leader has to be practical and a realist yet must talk the language of the visionary and the idealist.
