The art of leadership is saying no, not saying yes. It is very easy to say yes.
He who has learned how to obey will know how to command.
As we look ahead into the next century, leaders will be those who empower others.
True leadership lies in guiding others to success. In ensuring that everyone is performing at their best, doing the work they are pledged to do and doing it well.
Τας δε των σοφών ανδρών γνώμας αρετή πλουτίζειν τους κεκτημένους
Lead and inspire people. Don’t try to manage and manipulate people. Inventories can be managed but people must be lead.
A leader is a dealer in hope.
It is absurd that a man should rule others, who cannot rule himself.
I am reminded how hollow the label of leadership sometimes is and how heroic followership can be.
There are three essentials to leadership: humility, clarity and courage.
