Never give an order that can't be obeyed. General Douglas MacArthur

 

Leadership must be based on goodwill. Goodwill does not mean posturing and, least of all, pandering to the mob. It means obvious and wholehearted commitment to helping followers. We are tired of leaders we fear, tired of leaders we love, and of tired of leaders who let us take liberties with them. What we need for leaders are men of the heart who are so helpful that they, in effect, do away with the need of their jobs. But leaders like that are never out of a job, never out of followers. Strange as it sounds, great leaders gain authority by giving it away. Admiral James B. Stockdale

 

Great leaders are almost always great simplifiers, who can cut through argument, debate, and doubt to offer a solution everybody can understand. General Colin Powell

 

My own definition of leadership is this: The capacity and the will to rally men and women to a common purpose and the character which inspires confidence. General Montgomery

 

Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity. General George Patton

 

Leadership is a potent combination of strategy and character. But if you must be without one, be without the strategy. Norman Schwarzkopf
