Leadership is the art of getting someone else to do something you want done because he wants to do it.
General Dwight Eisenhower
A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.
Great leaders are almost always great simplifiers, who can cut through argument, debate, and doubt to offer a solution everybody can understand.
General Colin Powell
Do what you feel in your heart to be right–for you’ll be criticized anyway.
Earn your leadership every day.
Leadership cannot just go along to get along. Leadership must meet the moral challenge of the day.
Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others.
A leader takes people where they want to go. A great leader takes people where they don’t necessarily want to go, but ought to be.
You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing you think you cannot do.
You don’t lead by pointing and telling people some place to go. You lead by going to that place and making a case.
