You manage things; you lead people.
Rear Admiral Grace Murray Hopper
Never give an order that can’t be obeyed.
General Douglas MacArthur
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.
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.
Effective leadership is not about making speeches or being liked; leadership is defined by results not attributes.
You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing you think you cannot do.
Become the kind of leader that people would follow voluntarily; even if you had no title or position.
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.
Where there is no vision, the people perish.
Leadership is unlocking people’s potential to become better.
