Education is the mother of leadership.
Effective leadership is putting first things first. Effective management is discipline, carrying it out.
There are three essentials to leadership: humility, clarity and courage.
Leaders aren’t born, they are made. And they are made just like anything else, through hard work. And that’s the price we’ll have to pay to achieve that goal, or any goal.
It is absurd that a man should rule others, who cannot rule himself.
Great leaders are almost always great simplifiers, who can cut through argument, debate, and doubt to offer a solution everybody can understand.
General Colin Powell
Anyone can hold the helm when the sea is calm.
Never give an order that can’t be obeyed.
General Douglas MacArthur
I cannot give you the formula for success, but I can give you the formula for failure, which is: Try to please everybody.
He who has never learned to obey cannot be a good commander.
