Leadership is the art of getting someone else to do something you want done because he wants to do it.
General Dwight Eisenhower
Leaders must be close enough to relate to others, but far enough ahead to motivate them.
John C. Maxwell
To command is to serve, nothing more and nothing less.
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.
If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.
John Quincy Adams
I start with the premise that the function of leadership is to produce more leaders, not more followers.
I am endlessly fascinated that playing football is considered a training ground for leadership, but raising children isn’t.
Dee Dee Myers
A man who wants to lead the orchestra must turn his back on the crowd.
One of the tests of leadership is the ability to recognize a problem before it becomes an emergency.
Effective leadership is not about making speeches or being liked; leadership is defined by results not attributes.
