Leadership is unlocking people’s potential to become better.
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.
So much of what we call management consists in making it difficult for people to work.
We live in a society obsessed with public opinion. But leadership has never been about popularity.
All of the great leaders have had one characteristic in common: it was the willingness to confront unequivocally the major anxiety of their people in their time. This, and not much else, is the essence of leadership.
John Kenneth Galbraith
My responsibility is getting all my players playing for the name on the front of the jersey, not the one on the back.
Don’t necessarily avoid sharp edges. Occasionally they are necessary to leadership.
Anyone can hold the helm when the sea is calm.
True leadership lies in guiding others to success. In ensuring that everyone is performing at their best, doing the work they are pledged to do and doing it well.
You manage things; you lead people.
Rear Admiral Grace Murray Hopper
