The nation will find it very hard to look up to the leaders who are keeping their ears to the ground.
Sir Winston Churchill
Effective leadership is not about making speeches or being liked; leadership is defined by results not attributes.
One of the tests of leadership is the ability to recognize a problem before it becomes an emergency.
Whatever you are, be a good one.
Where there is no vision, the people perish.
Γνώμαι σοφών αρετήν πλουτίζουσιν
He who has great power should use it lightly.
Leadership is lifting a person’s vision to high sights, the raising of a person’s performance to a higher standard, the building of a personality beyond its normal limitations.
Leaders must be close enough to relate to others, but far enough ahead to motivate them.
John C. Maxwell
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
