In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock.
I must follow the people. Am I not their leader?
Leadership does not always wear the harness of compromise.
You don’t lead by hitting people over the head that’s assault, not leadership.
Leadership is influence.
John C. Maxwell
The first responsibility of a leader is to define reality. The last is to say thank you. In between, the leader is a servant.
To command is to serve, nothing more and nothing less.
Great leaders are almost always great simplifiers, who can cut through argument, debate, and doubt to offer a solution everybody can understand.
General Colin Powell
As we look ahead into the next century, leaders will be those who empower others.
A great leader’s courage to fulfill his vision comes from passion, not position.
