Where there is no vision, the people perish.
To do great things is difficult; but to command great things is more difficult.
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.
Leadership cannot just go along to get along. Leadership must meet the moral challenge of the day.
The best executive is the one who has sense enough to pick good men to do what he wants done, and self-restraint enough to keep from meddling with them while they do it.
Outstanding leaders go out of their way to boost the self-esteem of their personnel. If people believe in themselves, it’s amazing what they can accomplish.
You manage things; you lead people.
Rear Admiral Grace Murray Hopper
Management is about arranging and telling. Leadership is about nurturing and enhancing.
