It is absurd that a man should rule others, who cannot rule himself.
What you do has far greater impact than what you say.
Leadership is the art of getting someone else to do something you want done because he wants to do it.
General Dwight Eisenhower
Management is about arranging and telling. Leadership is about nurturing and enhancing.
He who has great power should use it lightly.
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.
Lead and inspire people. Don’t try to manage and manipulate people. Inventories can be managed but people must be lead.
You don’t lead by pointing and telling people some place to go. You lead by going to that place and making a case.
A cowardly leader is the most dangerous of men.
One of the tests of leadership is the ability to recognize a problem before it becomes an emergency.
