If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.
Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.
Leadership is the art of getting someone else to do something you want done because he wants to do it.
The key to successful leadership today is influence, not authority.
Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things.
Example is not the main thing in influencing others. It is the only thing.
The art of leadership is saying no, not saying yes. It is very easy to say yes.
The challenge of leadership is to be strong, but not rude; be kind, but not weak; be bold, but not bully; be thoughtful, but not lazy; be humble, but not timid; be proud, but not arrogant; have humor, but without folly.
Be strong, but not rude; Be kind, but not weak; Be bold, but not bully; Be humble, but not timid; Be prooud, but not arrogant.
The function of leadership is to produce more leaders, not more followers.
Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality.
The day soldiers stop bringing you their problems is the day you have stopped leading them.
The leaders who work most effectively, it seems to me, never say 'I'. They don't think 'I'. They think 'we'; they think 'team'.
Leaders aren't born they are made.
Leaders are not born, they're made.
Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others.
He who has never learned to obey cannot be a good commander.
Leaders aren't born they are made. And they are made just like anything else, through hard work. And that's the price we'll have to pay to achieve that goal, or any goal.
Outstanding leaders go out of their way to boost the self-esteem of their personnel. If people believe in themselves, it's amazing what they can accomplish.
The task of the leader is to get his people from where they are to where they have not been.
