Good leadership consists of showing average people how to do the work of superior people.
John D. Rockefeller
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
Leadership is diving for a loose ball, getting the crowd involved, getting other players involved. It's being able to take it as well as dish it out. That's the only way you're going to get respect from the players.
Leadership is getting players to believe in you. If you tell a teammate you're ready to play as tough as you're able to, you'd better go out there and do it. Players will see right through a phony. And they can tell when you're not giving it all you've got.
Example is leadership.
Character matters; leadership descends from character.

I forgot to shake hands and be friendly. It was an important lesson about leadership.
Leadership is getting someone to do what they don't want to do, to achieve what they want to achieve.
Leadership is a matter of having people look at you and gain confidence, seeing how you react. If you're in control, they're in control.
There are many elements to a campaign. Leadership is number one. Everything else is number two.
Leadership is, among other things, the ability to inflict pain and get away with it - short-term pain for long-term gain.
Overall, the challenge of leadership is both moral and one of developing the characteristics that make us respected by one another.
The key to successful leadership today is influence, not authority.
To have long term success as a coach or in any position of leadership, you have to be obsessed in some way.
