A good leader is a person who takes a little more than his share of the blame and a little less than his share of the credit.
Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.
John F. Kennedy
Where there is no vision, the people perish.
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.
Effective leadership is not about making speeches or being liked; leadership is defined by results not attributes.
He who has never learned to obey cannot be a good commander.
If one is lucky, a solitary fantasy can totally transform one million realities.
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
I am endlessly fascinated that playing football is considered a training ground for leadership, but raising children isn’t.
Dee Dee Myers
No man will make a great leader who wants to do it all himself, or to get all the credit for doing it.
