The growth and development of people is the highest calling of leadership.
True leadership lies in guiding others to success. In ensuring that everyone is performing at their best, doing the work they are pledged to do and doing it well.
You manage things; you lead people.
Rear Admiral Grace Murray Hopper
No man will make a great leader who wants to do it all himself, or to get all the credit for doing it.
He who has never learned to obey cannot be a good commander.
Become the kind of leader that people would follow voluntarily; even if you had no title or position.
Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others.
Leadership does not always wear the harness of compromise.
Lead and inspire people. Don’t try to manage and manipulate people. Inventories can be managed but people must be lead.
Leadership cannot just go along to get along. Leadership must meet the moral challenge of the day.
