Become the kind of leader that people would follow voluntarily; even if you had no title or position.
There are three essentials to leadership: humility, clarity and courage.
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.
Leadership is influence.
John C. Maxwell
Τας δε των σοφών ανδρών γνώμας αρετή πλουτίζειν τους κεκτημένους
A cowardly leader is the most dangerous of men.
What you do has far greater impact than what you say.
You manage things; you lead people.
Rear Admiral Grace Murray Hopper
I am endlessly fascinated that playing football is considered a training ground for leadership, but raising children isn’t.
Dee Dee Myers
It is absurd that a man should rule others, who cannot rule himself.
