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.
Leadership is a potent combination of strategy and character. But if you must be without one, be without the strategy.
We live in a society obsessed with public opinion. But leadership has never been about popularity.
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.
Leaders think and talk about the solutions. Followers think and talk about the problems.
Not the cry, but the flight of a wild duck, leads the flock to fly and follow.
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
Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others.
Whatever you are, be a good one.
If one is lucky, a solitary fantasy can totally transform one million realities.
