I start with the premise that the function of leadership is to produce more leaders, not more followers.

Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others.
Leadership is influence.
John C. Maxwell
Whatever you are, be a good one.
Leaders aren’t born, they are made. And they are made just like anything else, through hard work. And that’s the price we’ll have to pay to achieve that goal, or any goal.
A leader is a dealer in hope.
A cowardly leader is the most dangerous of men.
You don’t lead by hitting people over the head that’s assault, not leadership.
My own definition of leadership is this: The capacity and the will to rally men and women to a common purpose and the character which inspires confidence.
