A leader takes people where they want to go. A great leader takes people where they don’t necessarily want to go, but ought to be.
The challenge of leadership is to be strong, but not rude; be kind, but not weak; be bold, but not bully; be thoughtful, but not lazy; be humble, but not timid; be proud, but not arrogant; have humor, but without folly.
So much of what we call management consists in making it difficult for people to work.
You don’t need a title to be a leader.
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.
Education is the mother of leadership.
The supreme quality of leadership is integrity.
Το λακωνίζειν εστί φιλοσοφείν
A great person attracts great people and knows how to hold them together.
Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
You don’t lead by pointing and telling people some place to go. You lead by going to that place and making a case.
