Never give an order that can’t be obeyed.
General Douglas MacArthur
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.
Lead and inspire people. Don’t try to manage and manipulate people. Inventories can be managed but people must be lead.
As we look ahead into the next century, leaders will be those who empower others.
I am endlessly fascinated that playing football is considered a training ground for leadership, but raising children isn’t.
Dee Dee Myers
Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity.
General George Patton
You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing you think you cannot do.
Leaders aren’t born, they are made. And they are made just like anything else, through hard work. And that’s the price we’ll have to pay to achieve that goal, or any goal.
No man will make a great leader who wants to do it all himself, or to get all the credit for doing it.
