Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others.
A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves.
The art of leadership is saying no, not saying yes. It is very easy to say yes.
He who has great power should use it lightly.
You don’t lead by pointing and telling people some place to go. You lead by going to that place and making a case.
No man is good enough to govern another man without that other’s consent.
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.
You don’t lead by hitting people over the head that’s assault, not leadership.
You don’t need a title to be a leader.
The final test of a leader is that he leaves behind him in other men, the conviction and the will to carry on.
