"As a leader you must celebrate life, you must celebrate success and paradoxically, you must celebrate heroic failures. "
"A successful leader must be wedded to the spirit of the age. "
"Leadership is difficult to define, but it is easy to recognise. When you see leadership its presence is unmistakable."
"The idea of leadership ... is based on five pillars, the most important of which is the fundamental need to create among your followers a strong and enduring sense of purpose. You must create the culture, work hard at keeping things simple, remember to never put yourself above the foibles of human nature and always celebrate life."
"All men and women are stubborn seekers of a sense of purpose. The core task of a leader is to establish and nurture a strong and enduring sense of purpose."
"What a community gets in its leaders is exactly what it asks for, no more and no less. Our leaders reflect the kind of society we are, the role we seek to play in the world and the way we see ourselves."
"You must never put yourself or those you lead above the foibles of human nature. To do so, is to attempt to place yourself and your followers beyond the fundamental truths of the human condition."
