The leader has to be practical and a realist yet must talk the language of the visionary and the idealist.
Never give an order that can’t be obeyed.
General Douglas MacArthur
Leadership is the key to 99 percent of all successful efforts.
The greatest leaders mobilize others by coalescing people around a shared vision.
Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality.
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
You don’t lead by hitting people over the head that’s assault, not leadership.
Leaders must be close enough to relate to others, but far enough ahead to motivate them.
John C. Maxwell
Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity.
General George Patton
There are three essentials to leadership: humility, clarity and courage.
