I am reminded how hollow the label of leadership sometimes is and how heroic followership can be.
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.
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
Γνώμαι σοφών αρετήν πλουτίζουσιν
Effective leadership is putting first things first. Effective management is discipline, carrying it out.
Ρήμα παράκαιρον τον όλον ανατρέπει βίον
Μένανδρος (Γνωμ. Μον.)
You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing you think you cannot do.
To have long term success as a coach or in any position of leadership, you have to be obsessed in some way.
You manage things; you lead people.
Rear Admiral Grace Murray Hopper
It is absurd that a man should rule others, who cannot rule himself.
