Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things.
Leadership is the art of getting someone else to do something you want done because he wants to do it.
A leader is best when people barely know that he exists.
Management is efficiency in climbing the ladder of success; leadership determines whether the ladder is leaning against the right wall.
Management is efficiency in climbing the ladder of success
The manager asks how and when; the leader asks what and why.
You don't lead by hitting people over the head - that's assault, not leadership.
You manage things, you lead people. We went overboard on management and forgot about leadership. It might help if we ran the MBAs out of Washington.
A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves.
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.
The manager accepts the status quo; the leader challenges it.
The building of a personality beyond its normal limitations.
The manager has a short-range view; the leader has a long-range perspective.
Leadership is defined by results not attributes.
Effective leadership is not about making speeches or being liked; leadership is defined by results not attributes.
Leaders aren't born they are made.
Leaders are not born, they're made.
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.
A good manager is best when people barely know that he exists. Not so good when people obey and acclaim him. Worse when they despise him.
The manager administers; the leader innovates.
