The final test of a leader is that he leaves behind him in other men, the conviction and the will to carry on.
In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock.
Never give an order that can’t be obeyed.
General Douglas MacArthur
So much of what we call management consists in making it difficult for people to work.
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.
What you do has far greater impact than what you say.
A good general not only sees the way to victory; he also knows when victory is impossible.
Lead and inspire people. Don’t try to manage and manipulate people. Inventories can be managed but people must be lead.
You don’t lead by hitting people over the head that’s assault, not leadership.
