Leadership and management

Superior leaders get things done with very little motion.
They impart instruction not through many words, but through a few deeds.
They keep informed about everything but interfere hardly at all.
They are catalysts, and though things would not get done as well if they were not there, when they succeed they take no credit.
And, because they take no credit, credit never leaves them.

-- Lao-Tzu

Most of what we call management consists of making it difficult for people to get their work done.

-- Peter F. Drucker
