One of the tests of leadership is the ability to recognize a problem before it becomes an emergency.
Leadership is influence.
John C. Maxwell
As we look ahead into the next century, leaders will be those who empower others.
Management is about arranging and telling. Leadership is about nurturing and enhancing.
Effective leadership is putting first things first. Effective management is discipline, carrying it out.
Leaders think and talk about the solutions. Followers think and talk about the problems.
I start with the premise that the function of leadership is to produce more leaders, not more followers.
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.
Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.
John F. Kennedy
No man is good enough to govern another man without that other’s consent.
