Leaders must be close enough to relate to others, but far enough ahead to motivate them.
John C. Maxwell
Lead and inspire people. Don’t try to manage and manipulate people. Inventories can be managed but people must be lead.
A cowardly leader is the most dangerous of men.
In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock.
Education is the mother of leadership.
The very essence of leadership is that you have to have a vision. It’s got to be a vision you articulate clearly and forcefully on every occasion. You can’t blow an uncertain trumpet.
Reverend Theodore Hesburgh
There are three essentials to leadership: humility, clarity and courage.
Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality.
Outstanding leaders go out of their way to boost the self-esteem of their personnel. If people believe in themselves, it’s amazing what they can accomplish.
To have long term success as a coach or in any position of leadership, you have to be obsessed in some way.
