As we look ahead into the next century, leaders will be those who empower others.
Whatever you are, be a good one.
Lead and inspire people. Don’t try to manage and manipulate people. Inventories can be managed but people must be lead.
Great leaders are almost always great simplifiers, who can cut through argument, debate, and doubt to offer a solution everybody can understand.
General Colin Powell
Management is about arranging and telling. Leadership is about nurturing and enhancing.
The very essence of leadership is that you have to have a vision. It’s got to be a vision you articulate clearly and forcefully on every occasion. You can’t blow an uncertain trumpet.
Reverend Theodore Hesburgh
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.
The art of leadership is saying no, not saying yes. It is very easy to say yes.
Leadership is the key to 99 percent of all successful efforts.
Leadership does not always wear the harness of compromise.
