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.          

General Montgomery

The nation will find it very hard to look up to the leaders who are keeping their ears to the ground.          

Sir Winston Churchill

Management is about arranging and telling. Leadership is about nurturing and enhancing.          

Tom Peters

Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality.          

Warren Bennis

Leaders must be close enough to relate to others, but far enough ahead to motivate them.          

John C. Maxwell

In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock.          

Thomas Jefferson

Leadership is the key to 99 percent of all successful efforts.          

Erskine Bowles

Whatever you are, be a good one.          

Abraham Lincoln

Effective leadership is putting first things first. Effective management is discipline, carrying it out.          

Stephen Covey

Leadership is a potent combination of strategy and character. But if you must be without one, be without the strategy.
