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 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
What you do has far greater impact than what you say.
You manage things; you lead people.
Rear Admiral Grace Murray Hopper
Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.
John F. Kennedy
A great leader’s courage to fulfill his vision comes from passion, not position.
A competent leader can get efficient service from poor troops, while on the contrary an incapable leader can demoralize the best of troops.
John J Pershing
The growth and development of people is the highest calling of leadership.
You don’t lead by hitting people over the head that’s assault, not leadership.
You don’t lead by pointing and telling people some place to go. You lead by going to that place and making a case.
