So much of what we call management consists in making it difficult for people to work.
Never give an order that can’t be obeyed.
General Douglas MacArthur
He who has learned how to obey will know how to command.
Lead and inspire people. Don’t try to manage and manipulate people. Inventories can be managed but people must be lead.
I start with the premise that the function of leadership is to produce more leaders, not more followers.
Leadership is the key to 99 percent of all successful efforts.
Effective leadership is not about making speeches or being liked; leadership is defined by results not attributes.
Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality.
No man will make a great leader who wants to do it all himself, or to get all the credit for doing it.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, concerned citizens can change world. Indeed it is the only thing that ever has.
