A man who wants to lead the orchestra must turn his back on the crowd.
The supreme quality of leadership is integrity.
The greatest leaders mobilize others by coalescing people around a shared vision.
I am reminded how hollow the label of leadership sometimes is and how heroic followership can be.
Become the kind of leader that people would follow voluntarily; even if you had no title or position.
Great leaders are not defined by the absence of weakness, but rather by the presence of clear strengths.
Men make history and not the other way around. In periods where there is no leadership, society stands still. Progress occurs when courageous, skillful leaders seize the opportunity to change things for the better.
Harry S. Truman
Management is efficiency in climbing the ladder of success; leadership determines whether the ladder is leaning against the right wall.
You don’t lead by pointing and telling people some place to go. You lead by going to that place and making a case.
