There are three essentials to leadership: humility, clarity and courage.
Έστι δ’ η γνώμη απόφανσις περί των καθόλου και περί όσων αι πράξεις εισί, και αιρετά ή φευκτά εστι προς το πράττειν
If you would not be forgotten, as soon as you are dead and rotten, either write things worth reading, or do things worth the writing.
A man who wants to lead the orchestra must turn his back on the crowd.
Never give an order that can’t be obeyed.
General Douglas MacArthur
Where there is no vision, the people perish.
Management is efficiency in climbing the ladder of success; leadership determines whether the ladder is leaning against the right wall.
If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.
John Quincy Adams
We live in a society obsessed with public opinion. But leadership has never been about popularity.
Don’t necessarily avoid sharp edges. Occasionally they are necessary to leadership.
