A leader is a dealer in hope.
A general is just as good or just as bad as the troops under his command make him.
He who has never learned to obey cannot be a good commander.
No man can stand on top because he is put there.
He that would be a leader must also be a bridge.
Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity.
You can’t lead anyone else further than you have gone yourself.
You do not lead by hitting people over the head. That’s assault, not leadership.
Nothing so conclusively proves a man’s ability to lead others as what he does from day to day to lead himself.
Leaders don’t create followers, they create more leaders.
A good leader is a person who takes a little more than his share of the blame and a little less than his share of the credit.
A man is only a leader when a follower stands beside him.
Leadership is based on a spiritual quality; the power to inspire, the power to inspire others to follow.
Leadership: the art of getting someone else to do something you want done because he wants to do it.
Management is nothing more than motivating other people.
To lead the people, walk behind them.
A leader has the vision and conviction that a dream can be achieved. He inspires the power and energy to get it done.
Leaders need to be optimists. Their vision is beyond the present.
I suppose that leadership at one time meant muscle; but today it means getting along with people.
Be the change you want to see in the world.
