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
A great person attracts great people and knows how to hold them together.
Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
Ήκιστα πόλεμος επί ρητοίς χωρεί
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.
Leadership is unlocking people’s potential to become better.
Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others.
Leadership is a potent combination of strategy and character. But if you must be without one, be without the strategy.
Γνώμαι σοφών αρετήν πλουτίζουσιν
The very essence of leadership is that you have to have a vision. It’s got to be a vision you articulate clearly and forcefully on every occasion. You can’t blow an uncertain trumpet.
Reverend Theodore Hesburgh
There are three essentials to leadership: humility, clarity and courage.
