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
The growth and development of people is the highest calling of leadership.
Leadership cannot just go along to get along. Leadership must meet the moral challenge of the day.
To do great things is difficult; but to command great things is more difficult.
A good general not only sees the way to victory; he also knows when victory is impossible.
Leadership is unlocking people’s potential to become better.
He who has learned how to obey will know how to command.
People buy into the leader before they buy into the vision.
As we look ahead into the next century, leaders will be those who empower others.
Effective leadership is not about making speeches or being liked; leadership is defined by results not attributes.
