Leaders must be close enough to relate to others, but far enough ahead to motivate them.
John C. Maxwell
Earn your leadership every day.
True leadership lies in guiding others to success. In ensuring that everyone is performing at their best, doing the work they are pledged to do and doing it well.
It is better to lead from behind and to put others in front, especially when you celebrate victory when nice things occur. You take the front line when there is danger. Then people will appreciate your leadership.
Effective leadership is not about making speeches or being liked; leadership is defined by results not attributes.
My responsibility is getting all my players playing for the name on the front of the jersey, not the one on the back.
Management is about arranging and telling. Leadership is about nurturing and enhancing.
I cannot give you the formula for success, but I can give you the formula for failure, which is: Try to please everybody.
Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality.
Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others.
