Leadership is influence.
John C. Maxwell
You manage things; you lead people.
Rear Admiral Grace Murray Hopper
Leadership is lifting a person’s vision to high sights, the raising of a person’s performance to a higher standard, the building of a personality beyond its normal limitations.
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.

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing you think you cannot do.
Great leaders are not defined by the absence of weakness, but rather by the presence of clear strengths.
