Leadership does not always wear the harness of compromise.
It is better to lead from behind and to put others in front, especially when you celebrate victory when nice things occur. You take the front line when there is danger. Then people will appreciate your leadership.
Great leaders are not defined by the absence of weakness, but rather by the presence of clear strengths.
You don’t lead by hitting people over the head that’s assault, not leadership.
Don’t necessarily avoid sharp edges. Occasionally they are necessary to leadership.
Leadership cannot just go along to get along. Leadership must meet the moral challenge of the day.
If one is lucky, a solitary fantasy can totally transform one million realities.
Effective leadership is not about making speeches or being liked; leadership is defined by results not attributes.
A leader is a dealer in hope.
Leadership is the art of getting someone else to do something you want done because he wants to do it.
