The task of leadership is not to put greatness into people, but to elicit it, for the greatness is there already. (John Buchan). 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). To lead people, walk beside them … As for the best leaders, the people do not notice their existence. The next best, the people honor and praise. The next, the people fear; and the next, the people hate … When the best leader’s work is done the people say, ‘We did it ourselves! (Lao-Tsu). Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail. (Harold R. McAlindon).
