Lead from the back and let others believe they are in front.
Hire character. Train skill.
Controlling order means dismissing.
Ruling is foreseeing.
Emile de Girardin
Always mistrust a subordinate who never finds fault with his subordinates.
Leadership is based on inspiration, not domination; on cooperation, not intimidation.
William Arthur Wood

Vicente del Bosque

A servant estimates his master on the size of his salary.
A good horse obeys even horseman's shadow.
Servants really help only when they feel you are rigid.
Leaders are people who do the right things. Managers are people who do things right.
To govern is always to choose among disadvantages.
Charles de Gaulle
A good boss doesn't prevent his workers from making mistakes.
What can't be measured can't be managed.
He isn't a real boss until he has trained subordinates to shoulder most of his responsibilities.
People ask the difference between a leader and a boss. The leader leads, and the boss drives.
If thou are a master, be sometimes blind; if a servant, sometimes deaf.
If you would have a faithful servant, and one that you like, serve yourself.
A cowardly leader is the most dangerous of men.
Vision without action is a daydream. Action without vision is a nightmare.
The supreme quality of leadership is integrity.
The first responsibility of a leader is to define reality. The last is to say thank you. In between, the leader is a servant.
Men make history and not the other way around. In periods where there is no leadership, society stands still. Progress occurs when courageous, skillful leaders seize the opportunity to change things for the better.
Harry S Truman
