Some suggestions for you :

Create a compelling vision, one that takes people to a new place, and then translate that vision into a reality.

Leaders are people who do the right thing; managers are people who do things right.

The manager asks how and when; the leader asks what and why.

The primary goal of management education was, as originally conceived, to impart knowledge that could be applied to a variety of real-world business situations.

Managers do things right. Leaders do the right thing.

Good leaders make people feel that they're at the very heart of things, not at the periphery.

Most regular, two-year MBA programs provide both experience and the capacity to link together the essential elements of management such as finance, marketing, organizational behavior, and operations.

Failing organizations are usually over-managed and under-led.

Taking charge of your own learning is a part of taking charge of your life, which is the sine qua non in becoming an integrated person.

Great Groups need to know that the person at the top will fight like a tiger for them.

To be authentic is literally to be your own author, to discover your own native energies and desires, and then to find your own way of acting on them.
