As we look ahead into the next century, leaders will be those who empower others.
Τας δε των σοφών ανδρών γνώμας αρετή πλουτίζειν τους κεκτημένους
Effective leadership is putting first things first. Effective management is discipline, carrying it out.
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
Not the cry, but the flight of a wild duck, leads the flock to fly and follow.
Έστι δ’ η γνώμη απόφανσις περί των καθόλου και περί όσων αι πράξεις εισί, και αιρετά ή φευκτά εστι προς το πράττειν
Leadership is unlocking people’s potential to become better.
The nation will find it very hard to look up to the leaders who are keeping their ears to the ground.
Sir Winston Churchill
Lead and inspire people. Don’t try to manage and manipulate people. Inventories can be managed but people must be lead.
The best executive is the one who has sense enough to pick good men to do what he wants done, and self-restraint enough to keep from meddling with them while they do it.
