People buy into the leader before they buy into the vision.
Leadership does not always wear the harness of compromise.
Το λακωνίζειν εστί φιλοσοφείν
Management is about arranging and telling. Leadership is about nurturing and enhancing.
Leadership is influence.
John C. Maxwell
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.
If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.
John Quincy Adams
So much of what we call management consists in making it difficult for people to work.
The supreme quality of leadership is integrity.
Effective leadership is not about making speeches or being liked; leadership is defined by results not attributes.
