The supreme quality of leadership is integrity.
All of the great leaders have had one characteristic in common: it was the willingness to confront unequivocally the major anxiety of their people in their time. This, and not much else, is the essence of leadership.
John Kenneth Galbraith
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, concerned citizens can change world. Indeed it is the only thing that ever has.
There are three essentials to leadership: humility, clarity and courage.
Leaders think and talk about the solutions. Followers think and talk about the problems.
I start with the premise that the function of leadership is to produce more leaders, not more followers.
As we look ahead into the next century, leaders will be those who empower others.
It is absurd that a man should rule others, who cannot rule himself.
Not the cry, but the flight of a wild duck, leads the flock to fly and follow.
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.
