Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others.
Not the cry, but the flight of a wild duck, leads the flock to fly and follow.
I must follow the people. Am I not their leader?
A leader is a dealer in hope.
A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.
He who has great power should use it lightly.
Leaders think and talk about the solutions. Followers think and talk about the problems.
Leaders must be close enough to relate to others, but far enough ahead to motivate them.
John C. Maxwell
A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves.
A good general not only sees the way to victory; he also knows when victory is impossible.
