The most dangerous leadership myth is that leaders are born-that there is a genetic factor to leadership. That’s nonsense; in fact, the opposite is true. Leaders are made rather than born.
Do what you feel in your heart to be right–for you’ll be criticized anyway.
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.
Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.
John F. Kennedy
A leader is a dealer in hope.
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 is the key to 99 percent of all successful efforts.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, concerned citizens can change world. Indeed it is the only thing that ever has.
The growth and development of people is the highest calling of leadership.
A good leader is a person who takes a little more than his share of the blame and a little less than his share of the credit.
