Management is efficiency in climbing the ladder of success; leadership determines whether the ladder is leaning against the right wall.
Great leaders are not defined by the absence of weakness, but rather by the presence of clear strengths.
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.
He who has never learned to obey cannot be a good commander.
Leadership is influence.
John C. Maxwell
It is absurd that a man should rule others, who cannot rule himself.
Leadership is a potent combination of strategy and character. But if you must be without one, be without the strategy.
One of the tests of leadership is the ability to recognize a problem before it becomes an emergency.
The growth and development of people is the highest calling of leadership.
Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others.
