A good plan violently executed now is better than a perfect plan executed next week.
The challenge of leadership is to be strong, but not rude; be kind, but not weak; be bold, but not bully; be thoughtful, but not lazy; be humble, but not timid; be proud, but not arrogant; have humor, but without folly.
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.
Leadership is the key to 99 percent of all successful efforts.
One of the tests of leadership is the ability to recognize a problem before it becomes an emergency.
Leadership is unlocking people’s potential to become better.
He who has learned how to obey will know how to command.
Great leaders are not defined by the absence of weakness, but rather by the presence of clear strengths.
Leadership is influence.
John C. Maxwell
He who has great power should use it lightly.
