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 need a title to be a leader.
Έστι δ’ η γνώμη απόφανσις περί των καθόλου και περί όσων αι πράξεις εισί, και αιρετά ή φευκτά εστι προς το πράττειν
Ρήμα παράκαιρον τον όλον ανατρέπει βίον
Μένανδρος (Γνωμ. Μον.)
Management is about arranging and telling. Leadership is about nurturing and enhancing.
If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.
John Quincy Adams
Σοφός ο γνωρίζων χρήσιμα
The final test of a leader is that he leaves behind him in other men, the conviction and the will to carry on.
Leadership does not always wear the harness of compromise.
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.
