The growth and development of people is the highest calling of leadership.
There are three essentials to leadership: humility, clarity and courage.
Whatever you are, be a good one.
What you do has far greater impact than what you say.
So much of what we call management consists in making it difficult for people to work.
Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.
John F. Kennedy
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.
Management is about arranging and telling. Leadership is about nurturing and enhancing.
Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity.
General George Patton
The leader has to be practical and a realist yet must talk the language of the visionary and the idealist.
