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.
What you do has far greater impact than what you say.
Never give an order that can’t be obeyed.
General Douglas MacArthur
Become the kind of leader that people would follow voluntarily; even if you had no title or position.
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 is influence.
John C. Maxwell
No man will make a great leader who wants to do it all himself, or to get all the credit for doing it.
No man is good enough to govern another man without that other’s consent.
Great leaders are not defined by the absence of weakness, but rather by the presence of clear strengths.
A good general not only sees the way to victory; he also knows when victory is impossible.
