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.
To command is to serve, nothing more and nothing less.
If you would not be forgotten, as soon as you are dead and rotten, either write things worth reading, or do things worth the writing.
The growth and development of people is the highest calling of leadership.
What you do has far greater impact than what you say.
There are three essentials to leadership: humility, clarity and courage.
A great person attracts great people and knows how to hold them together.
Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
Leadership is influence.
John C. Maxwell
The greatest leaders mobilize others by coalescing people around a shared vision.
Men make history and not the other way around. In periods where there is no leadership, society stands still. Progress occurs when courageous, skillful leaders seize the opportunity to change things for the better.
Harry S. Truman
