I start with the premise that the function of leadership is to produce more leaders, not more followers.
We live in a society obsessed with public opinion. But leadership has never been about popularity.
The first responsibility of a leader is to define reality. The last is to say thank you. In between, the leader is a servant.
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.
Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity.
General George Patton
Effective leadership is not about making speeches or being liked; leadership is defined by results not attributes.

The supreme quality of leadership is integrity.
You don’t need a title to be a leader.
A ruler should be slow to punish and swift to reward.
