I start with the premise that the function of leadership is to produce more leaders, not more followers.
Leaders think and talk about the solutions. Followers think and talk about the problems.
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
Lead and inspire people. Don’t try to manage and manipulate people. Inventories can be managed but people must be lead.
There are three essentials to leadership: humility, clarity and courage.
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.
To do great things is difficult; but to command great things is more difficult.
Whatever you are, be a good one.
He who has great power should use it lightly.
When I give a minister an order, I leave it to him to find the means to carry it out.
