A cowardly leader is the most dangerous of men.
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.
I start with the premise that the function of leadership is to produce more leaders, not more followers.
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.
Lead and inspire people. Don’t try to manage and manipulate people. Inventories can be managed but people must be lead.
Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality.
I am endlessly fascinated that playing football is considered a training ground for leadership, but raising children isn’t.
Dee Dee Myers
Leadership cannot just go along to get along. Leadership must meet the moral challenge of the day.
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.
Anyone can hold the helm when the sea is calm.
