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.
You don’t lead by pointing and telling people some place to go. You lead by going to that place and making a case.
My responsibility is getting all my players playing for the name on the front of the jersey, not the one on the back.
Where there is no vision, the people perish.
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.
What you do has far greater impact than what you say.
No man is good enough to govern another man without that other’s consent.
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.
Leadership is influence.
John C. Maxwell
Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality.
