If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.
John Quincy Adams
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
I cannot give you the formula for success, but I can give you the formula for failure, which is: Try to please everybody.
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.
Management is about arranging and telling. Leadership is about nurturing and enhancing.
The supreme quality of leadership is integrity.
In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock.
The leader has to be practical and a realist yet must talk the language of the visionary and the idealist.
Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality.
Leaders think and talk about the solutions. Followers think and talk about the problems.
