Good leadership consists of showing average people how to do the work of superior people.
I suppose leadership at one time meant muscles; but today it means getting along with people.
The key to successful leadership today is influence, not authority.
Leadership is understanding people and involving them to help you do a job. That takes all of the good characteristics, like integrity, dedication of purpose, selflessness, knowledge, skill, implacability, as well as determination not to accept failure.
Good leadership isn't about advancing yourself. It's about advancing your team.
Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.
The growth and development of people is the highest calling of leadership.
The leaders who work most effectively, it seems to me, never say 'I'. They don't think 'I'. They think 'we'; they think 'team'.
I always believe that ultimately, if people are paying attention, then we get good government and good leadership. And when we get lazy, as a democracy and civically start taking shortcuts, then it results in bad government and politics.
Leaders don't create followers, they create more leaders.
The very essence of leadership is that you have to have vision. You can't blow an uncertain trumpet.
The best executive is one who has sense enough to pick good people to do what he wants done, and self-restraint enough to keep from meddling with them while they do it.
You can't blow an uncertain trumpet.
Leadership is lifting a person's vision to high sights, the raising of a person's performance to a higher standard, the building of a personality beyond its normal limitations.
In the past a leader was a boss. Today's leaders must be partners with their people... they no longer can lead solely based on positional power.
The real leader has no need to lead - he is content to point the way.
Good leaders make people feel that they're at the very heart of things, not at the periphery.
He who cannot be a good follower cannot be a good leader.
Leadership is defined by results not attributes.
Leaders are not born, they're made.
Good leaders must first become good servants.
Leaders are more powerful role models when they learn than when they teach.
Go to the people. Learn from them. Live with them. Start with what they know. Build with what they have. The best of leaders when the job is done, when the task is accomplished, the people will say we have done it ourselves.
Be willing to make decisions. That's the most important quality in a good leader.
He that cannot obey, cannot command.
