If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.
Leadership is the art of getting someone else to do something you want done because he wants to do it.
Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things.
Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.
The first responsibility of a leader is to define reality.
You don't lead by hitting people over the head - that's assault, not leadership.
The function of leadership is to produce more leaders, not more followers.
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.
A leader takes people where they want to go. A great leader takes people where they don't necessarily want to go, but ought to be.
The final test of a leader is that he leaves behind him in other men the conviction and the will to carry on.
Leaders aren't born they are made.
The building of a personality beyond its normal limitations.
Leaders are not born, they're made.
No man will make a great leader who wants to do it all himself or get all the credit for doing it.
The key to successful leadership today is influence, not authority.
A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.
Example is not the main thing in influencing others. It is the only thing.
The very essence of leadership is that you have to have vision. You can't blow an uncertain trumpet.
Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others.
I suppose leadership at one time meant muscles; but today it means getting along with people.
