Lead me, follow me, or get out of my way.

I cannot give you the formula for success, but I can give you the formula for failure, which is: Try to please everybody.
My own definition of leadership is this: The capacity and the will to rally men and women to a common purpose and the character which inspires confidence.
Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality.
Leaders think and talk about the solutions. Followers think and talk about the problems.
A man who wants to lead the orchestra must turn his back on the crowd.

The leader has to be practical and a realist yet must talk the language of the visionary and the idealist.
Leadership is unlocking people’s potential to become better.
A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.
