If you would not be forgotten, as soon as you are dead and rotten, either write things worth reading, or do things worth the writing.
Leaders must be close enough to relate to others, but far enough ahead to motivate them.
John C. Maxwell
I am endlessly fascinated that playing football is considered a training ground for leadership, but raising children isn’t.
Dee Dee Myers
Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others.
No man will make a great leader who wants to do it all himself, or to get all the credit for doing it.
You don’t lead by hitting people over the head that’s assault, not leadership.
Leadership is the art of getting someone else to do something you want done because he wants to do it.
General Dwight Eisenhower
The most dangerous leadership myth is that leaders are born-that there is a genetic factor to leadership. That’s nonsense; in fact, the opposite is true. Leaders are made rather than born.
A cowardly leader is the most dangerous of men.
To have long term success as a coach or in any position of leadership, you have to be obsessed in some way.
