If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.
John Quincy Adams
No man is good enough to govern another man without that other’s consent.
You manage things; you lead people.
Rear Admiral Grace Murray Hopper
If one is lucky, a solitary fantasy can totally transform one million realities.
To command is to serve, nothing more and nothing less.
The most dangerous leadership myth is that leaders are born-that there is a genetic factor to leadership. That’s nonsense; in fact, the opposite is true. Leaders are made rather than born.
Earn your leadership every day.
The challenge of leadership is to be strong, but not rude; be kind, but not weak; be bold, but not bully; be thoughtful, but not lazy; be humble, but not timid; be proud, but not arrogant; have humor, but without folly.
There are three essentials to leadership: humility, clarity and courage.
Outstanding leaders go out of their way to boost the self-esteem of their personnel. If people believe in themselves, it’s amazing what they can accomplish.
