The nation will find it very hard to look up to the leaders who are keeping their ears to the ground.
Sir Winston Churchill
I am reminded how hollow the label of leadership sometimes is and how heroic followership can be.
Leadership cannot just go along to get along. Leadership must meet the moral challenge of the day.
Don’t necessarily avoid sharp edges. Occasionally they are necessary to leadership.
The greatest leaders mobilize others by coalescing people around a shared vision.
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.
To have long term success as a coach or in any position of leadership, you have to be obsessed in some way.
You don’t lead by pointing and telling people some place to go. You lead by going to that place and making a case.
To do great things is difficult; but to command great things is more difficult.
The growth and development of people is the highest calling of leadership.
