People buy into the leader before they buy into the vision.
Earn your leadership every day.
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.
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.
I start with the premise that the function of leadership is to produce more leaders, not more followers.
The supreme quality of leadership is integrity.
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 don’t need a title to be a leader.
The greatest leaders mobilize others by coalescing people around a shared vision.
To command is to serve, nothing more and nothing less.
