Leadership is the key to 99 percent of all successful efforts.
I am endlessly fascinated that playing football is considered a training ground for leadership, but raising children isn’t.
Dee Dee Myers
Leadership is influence.
John C. Maxwell
To have long term success as a coach or in any position of leadership, you have to be obsessed in some way.
I am reminded how hollow the label of leadership sometimes is and how heroic followership can be.
Leaders think and talk about the solutions. Followers think and talk about the problems.
In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock.
All of the great leaders have had one characteristic in common: it was the willingness to confront unequivocally the major anxiety of their people in their time. This, and not much else, is the essence of leadership.
John Kenneth Galbraith
I cannot give you the formula for success, but I can give you the formula for failure, which is: Try to please everybody.
A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.
