Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others.
He who has learned how to obey will know how to command.
Leadership is a potent combination of strategy and character. But if you must be without one, be without the strategy.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, concerned citizens can change world. Indeed it is the only thing that ever has.
Do what you feel in your heart to be right–for you’ll be criticized anyway.
Leaders think and talk about the solutions. Followers think and talk about the problems.
The first responsibility of a leader is to define reality. The last is to say thank you. In between, the leader is a servant.
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.
Earn your leadership every day.
Leadership is influence.
John C. Maxwell
