Leadership is the art of getting someone else to do something you want done because he wants to do it.
General Dwight Eisenhower
I cannot give you the formula for success, but I can give you the formula for failure, which is: Try to please everybody.
Ήκιστα πόλεμος επί ρητοίς χωρεί
We live in a society obsessed with public opinion. But leadership has never been about popularity.
The leader has to be practical and a realist yet must talk the language of the visionary and the idealist.
I am endlessly fascinated that playing football is considered a training ground for leadership, but raising children isn’t.
Dee Dee Myers
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
Τας δε των σοφών ανδρών γνώμας αρετή πλουτίζειν τους κεκτημένους
To do great things is difficult; but to command great things is more difficult.
Become the kind of leader that people would follow voluntarily; even if you had no title or position.
