The chief executive should set broad policy and genera1 ground rules, tell people what he or she wants them to do, then let them do it; he should make himself (or herself) available, so that the members of his team can come to him if there is a problem. If there is, you can work together and, if necessary, fine-tune the policies. But I don't think a chief executive should peer constantly over the shoulders of the people who are in charge of a project and tell them every few minutes what to do," - Ronald Reagan

"A leader is judged in terms of what others do to obtain the results that he is placed there to get." -Vince Lombardi
