If you would not be forgotten, as soon as you are dead and rotten, either write things worth reading, or do things worth the writing.
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.
There are three essentials to leadership: humility, clarity and courage.
The supreme quality of leadership is integrity.
Leadership is influence.
John C. Maxwell
The best executive is the one who has sense enough to pick good men to do what he wants done, and self-restraint enough to keep from meddling with them while they do it.
You don’t lead by hitting people over the head that’s assault, not leadership.
Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity.
General George Patton
A great person attracts great people and knows how to hold them together.
Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
Effective leadership is not about making speeches or being liked; leadership is defined by results not attributes.
