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.
The leader has to be practical and a realist yet must talk the language of the visionary and the idealist.
The greatest leaders mobilize others by coalescing people around a shared vision.
It is better to lead from behind and to put others in front, especially when you celebrate victory when nice things occur. You take the front line when there is danger. Then people will appreciate your leadership.
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.
So much of what we call management consists in making it difficult for people to work.
The nation will find it very hard to look up to the leaders who are keeping their ears to the ground.
Sir Winston Churchill
You don’t need a title to be a leader.
To do great things is difficult; but to command great things is more difficult.
