Leadership is unlocking people’s potential to become better.
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.

I am endlessly fascinated that playing football is considered a training ground for leadership, but raising children isn’t.

The supreme quality of leadership is integrity.
A leader takes people where they want to go. A great leader takes people where they don’t necessarily want to go, but ought to be.
A man who wants to lead the orchestra must turn his back on the crowd.
He who has never learned to obey cannot be a good commander.
A ruler should be slow to punish and swift to reward.
Leaders must be close enough to relate to others, but far enough ahead to motivate them.
John C. Maxwell
