Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality. Warren G. Bennis

Some suggestions for you :

Leadership is the wise use of power. Power is the capacity to translate intention into reality and sustain it.

Excellence is a better teacher than mediocrity. The lessons of the ordinary are everywhere. Truly profound and original insights are to be found only in studying the exemplary.

Leaders should always expect the very best of those around them. They know that people can change and grow.

The manager administers; the leader innovates.

Specialized management courses are useful but should come well after the complexity of management and business are understood.

People who cannot invent and reinvent themselves must be content with borrowed postures, secondhand ideas, fitting in instead of standing out.

The original and brilliant idea of an MBA was the opportunity for students to study the theory and application of business and management principles.

The manager has his eye on the bottom line; the leader has his eye on the horizon.

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.

Learning in a face-to-face human community, as humans have evolved to do over hundreds of thousands of years, may always be the ideal - especially in an endeavor that is as relationship-driven as business.

You need people who can walk their companies into the future rather than back them into the future.

In life, change is inevitable. In business, change is vital.

Leadership has become a heavy industry. Concern and interest about leadership development is no longer an American phenomenon. It is truly global. Though I will probably be in less demand, I wanted to move on.

There is a profound difference between information and meaning.
