You don’t need a title to be a leader.
You don’t lead by hitting people over the head that’s assault, not leadership.
When I give a minister an order, I leave it to him to find the means to carry it out.
My own definition of leadership is this: The capacity and the will to rally men and women to a common purpose and the character which inspires confidence.
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
People buy into the leader before they buy into the vision.
A great leader’s courage to fulfill his vision comes from passion, not position.
Anyone can hold the helm when the sea is calm.
Management is efficiency in climbing the ladder of success; leadership determines whether the ladder is leaning against the right wall.
