Effective leadership is putting first things first. Effective management is discipline, carrying it out.
Earn your leadership every day.
Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others.
A competent leader can get efficient service from poor troops, while on the contrary an incapable leader can demoralize the best of troops.
John J Pershing
Outstanding leaders go out of their way to boost the self-esteem of their personnel. If people believe in themselves, it’s amazing what they can accomplish.
He who has never learned to obey cannot be a good commander.
We live in a society obsessed with public opinion. But leadership has never been about popularity.
Become the kind of leader that people would follow voluntarily; even if you had no title or position.
Don’t necessarily avoid sharp edges. Occasionally they are necessary to leadership.
A good plan violently executed now is better than a perfect plan executed next week.
