The final test of a leader is that he leaves behind him in other men, the conviction and the will to carry on.
Become the kind of leader that people would follow voluntarily; even if you had no title or position.
You manage things; you lead people.
Rear Admiral Grace Murray Hopper
The supreme quality of leadership is integrity.
So much of what we call management consists in making it difficult for people to work.
To do great things is difficult; but to command great things is more difficult.
No man will make a great leader who wants to do it all himself, or to get all the credit for doing it.
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.
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
The greatest leaders mobilize others by coalescing people around a shared vision.
