Anyone can hold the helm when the sea is calm.
Το λακωνίζειν εστί φιλοσοφείν
Leadership is influence.
John C. Maxwell
A competent leader can get efficient service from poor troops, while on the contrary an incapable leader can demoralize the best of troops.
John J Pershing
Effective leadership is putting first things first. Effective management is discipline, carrying it out.
Ρήμα παράκαιρον τον όλον ανατρέπει βίον
Μένανδρος (Γνωμ. Μον.)
You don’t lead by pointing and telling people some place to go. You lead by going to that place and making a case.
Where there is no vision, the people perish.
A good leader is a person who takes a little more than his share of the blame and a little less than his share of the credit.
The challenge of leadership is to be strong, but not rude; be kind, but not weak; be bold, but not bully; be thoughtful, but not lazy; be humble, but not timid; be proud, but not arrogant; have humor, but without folly.
