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.
Leaders think and talk about the solutions. Followers think and talk about the problems.
Outstanding leaders go out of their way to boost the self-esteem of their personnel. If people believe in themselves, it’s amazing what they can accomplish.
Anyone can hold the helm when the sea is calm.
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.
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.
Leadership cannot just go along to get along. Leadership must meet the moral challenge of the day.
A good plan violently executed now is better than a perfect plan executed next week.
Leadership is unlocking people’s potential to become better.
He who has never learned to obey cannot be a good commander.
