The art of leadership is saying no, not saying yes. It is very easy to say yes.
A good leader is a person who takes a little more than his share of the blame and a little less than his share of the credit.
Become the kind of leader that people would follow voluntarily; even if you had no title or position.
Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.
John F. Kennedy
A ruler should be slow to punish and swift to reward.
Έστι δ’ η γνώμη απόφανσις περί των καθόλου και περί όσων αι πράξεις εισί, και αιρετά ή φευκτά εστι προς το πράττειν
It is better to lead from behind and to put others in front, especially when you celebrate victory when nice things occur. You take the front line when there is danger. Then people will appreciate your leadership.
Lead me, follow me, or get out of my way.
General George Patton
Education is the mother of leadership.
A competent leader can get efficient service from poor troops, while on the contrary an incapable leader can demoralize the best of troops.
John J Pershing
