What They Said About Leadership

  • Always drink upstream from the herd.--Will Rogers
  • The question, "Who ought to be boss?" is like asking, "Who ought to be the tenor in the quartet?" Obviously, the person who can sing tenor." --Henry Ford
  • Don’t tell people how to do things, tell them what to do and let them surprise you with their results.--George S. Patton
  • You do not lead by hitting people over the head--that’s assault, not leadership.--Dwight Eisenhower
  • The best executive is the one who has sense enough to pick good men to do what he wants done, and self-restraint to keep from meddling with them while they do it.--Theodore Roosevelt
  • First rule of leadership: everything is your fault.--A Bug’s Life
  • A leader is best when people barely know he exists, not so good when people obey and acclaim him, worse when they despise him. But of a good leader who talks little when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: "We did it ourselves."--Lao-Tzu
  • Life is like a dogsled team. If you ain’t the lead dog, the scenery never changes.--Lewis Grizzard
  • The very essence of leadership is that you have to have vision. You can’t blow an uncertain trumpet.--Theodore M. Hesburgh
  • Delegating work works, provided the one delegating works, too.--Robert Half
