Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality.
My own definition of leadership is this: The capacity and the will to rally men and women to a common purpose and the character which inspires confidence.
Don’t necessarily avoid sharp edges. Occasionally they are necessary to leadership.
Leadership is the key to 99 percent of all successful efforts.
A good general not only sees the way to victory; he also knows when victory is impossible.
Leadership cannot just go along to get along. Leadership must meet the moral challenge of the day.
Great leaders are not defined by the absence of weakness, but rather by the presence of clear strengths.
There are three essentials to leadership: humility, clarity and courage.
The most dangerous leadership myth is that leaders are born-that there is a genetic factor to leadership. That’s nonsense; in fact, the opposite is true. Leaders are made rather than born.
The art of leadership is saying no, not saying yes. It is very easy to say yes.
