Leadership

He is the richest man who enriches his country most; in whom the people feel richest and proudest; who gives himself with his money; who opens the doors of opportunity widest to those about him; who is ears to the deaf; eyes to the blind, and feet to the lame. Such a man makes every acre of land in his community worth more, and makes richer every man who lives near him.
- Marden, Orison Swett
Leadership Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Leadership

1.
That is no use at all. What I want is men who will support me when I am in the wrong.
Melbourne, Lord

2.
Men are lead by trifles.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

3.
I suppose leadership at one time meant muscles; but today it means getting along with people.
Gandhi, Mahatma

4.
The crowd gives the leader new strength.
Evenius

5.
Leadership is getting players to believe in you. If you tell a teammate you're ready to play as tough as you're able to, you'd better go out there and do it. Players will see right through a phony. And they can tell when you're not giving it all you've got. Leadership is diving for a loose ball, getting the crowd involved, getting other players involved. It's being able to take it as well as dish it out. That's the only way you're going to get respect from the players.
Bird, Larry

6.
I don't believe in just ordering people to do things. You have to sort of grab an oar and row with them.
Geneen, Harold S.

7.
A prince should be slow to punish, and quick to reward.
Ovid

8.
Men shrink less from offending one who inspires love than one who inspires fear.
Machiavelli, Niccolo

9.
To be a leader, you have to make people want to follow you, and nobody wants to follow someone who doesn't know where he is going.
Namath, Joe

10.
There is no such thing as a perfect leader either in the past or present, in China or elsewhere. If there is one, he is only pretending, like a pig inserting scallions into its nose in an effort to look like an elephant.
Liu Shao-Ch'I

11.
Right or wrong, the customer is always right.
Field, Marshall

12.
Leadership is like the old galley ships. 100s are rowing, but only one (the captain) knows where they are going

13.
Most of the ladies and gentlemen who mourn the passing of the nation's leaders wouldn't know a leader if they saw one. If they had the bad luck to come across a leader, they would find out that he might demand something from them, and this impertinence would put an abrupt and indignant end to their wish for his return.
Lapham, Lewis H.

14.
The boss drives people; the leader coaches them. The boss depends on authority; the leader on good will. The boss inspires fear; the leader inspires enthusiasm. The boss says I; The leader says WE. The boss fixes the blame for the breakdown; the leader fixes the breakdown. The boss says, GO; the leader says lets, GO!
Selfridge, H. Gordon

15.
The challenge of leadership is to be strong, but not rude; be kind, but not weak; be bold, but not bully; be thoughtful, but not lazy; be humble, but not timid; be proud, but not arrogant; have humor, but without folly.
Rohn, Jim

16.
The real leader has no need to lead -- he is content to point the way.
Miller, Henry

17.
There is great force hidden in a gentle command.
Herbert, George

18.
He is the richest man who enriches his country most; in whom the people feel richest and proudest; who gives himself with his money; who opens the doors of opportunity widest to those about him; who is ears to the deaf; eyes to the blind, and feet to the lame. Such a man makes every acre of land in his community worth more, and makes richer every man who lives near him.
Marden, Orison Swett

19.
The best executive is the one who has sense enough to pick good men to do what he wants done, and self restraint to keep from meddling with them while they do it.
Roosevelt, Theodore

20.
A leader has the vision and conviction that a dream can be achieved. He inspires the power and energy to get it done.
Lauren, Ralph

21.
We herd sheep, we drive cattle, we lead people. Lead me, follow me, or get out of my way.
Patton, George S.

22.
If you lead a country like Britain, a strong country, a country which has taken a lead in world affairs in good times and in bad, a country that is always reliable, then you have to have a touch of iron about you.
Thatcher, Margaret

23.
The lead dog gets the best view. The rest of the dogs view is butt ugly. Of course, the lead dog is also the first to fall into the ravine.
Saunders, Richard

24.
Leadership is the activity of influencing people to cooperate towards some goal which they come to find desirable and which motivates them over the long haul.
Tead, Orway

25.
Public sentiment is everything, with it nothing can fail, without it nothing can succeed.
Lincoln, Abraham

26.
The penalty of leadership is loneliness.
Robinson, H. Wheeler

27.
Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.
John F. Kennedy

28.
Faith in the ability of a leader is of slight service unless it be united with faith in his justice.
George Goethals

29.
The wealth of kings is in the affections of their subjects.
Motto

30.
Education is the mother of leadership.
Willkie, Wendell L.

31.
All business success rests on something labeled a sale, which at least momentarily weds company and customer.
Peters, Thomas J.

32.
Leadership is the art of getting someone else to do something you want done because he wants to do it.
Eisenhower, Dwight D.

33.
People try so hard to believe in leaders now, pitifully hard. But we no sooner get a popular reformer or politician or soldier or writer or philosopher --a Roosevelt, a Tolstoy, a Wood, a Shaw, a Nietzsche, than the cross-currents of criticism wash him away. My Lord, no man can stand prominence these days. It's the surest path to obscurity. People get sick of hearing the same name over and over.

34.
The manager administers; the leader innovates. The manager has a short-range view; the leader has a long-range perspective. The manager asks how and when; the leader asks what and why. The manager has his eye on the bottom line; the leader has his eye on the horizon. The manager accepts the status quo; the leader challenges it.
Bennis, Warren

35.
The very essence of leadership is that you have to have vision. You can't blow an uncertain trumpet.
Hesburgh, Theodore M.

36.
Leaders must invoke an alchemy of great vision.
Kissinger, Henry

37.
Show me the leader and I will know his men. Show me the men and I will know their leader.
Newcomb, Arthur W.

38.
The chief executive who knows his strengths and weaknesses as a leader is likely to be far more effective than the one who remains blind to them. He also is on the road to humility -- that priceless attitude of openness to life that can help a manager absorb mistakes, failures, or personal shortcomings.
Adair, John

39.
Leadership is the other side of the coin of loneliness, and he who is a leader must always act alone. And acting alone, accept everything alone.
Marcos, Ferdinand E.

40.
Leadership is a potent combination of strategy and character. But if you must be without one, be without the strategy.
Schwarzkopf, Norman

41.
You can lead a whore to culture but you can't make her think.
Parker, Dorothy

42.
Leadership is not magnetic personality--that can just as well be a glib tongue. It is not making friends and influencing people --that is flattery. Leadership is lifting a person's vision to higher sights, the raising of a person's performance to a higher standard, the building of a personality beyond its normal limitations.
Drucker, Peter F.

43.
There is nothing more difficult to take in hand, more perilous to conduct, or more uncertain in its success than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things.
Machiavelli, Niccolo

44.
Every leader needs to look back once in a while to make sure he has followers. Source Unknown Effective leaders are known by the questions they ask rather than the statements they make.

45.
Leadership is not a position. You are not a leader because you have the title of manager. Leadership is something that we earn from followers on a day to day basis.
The EMS Manager Newsletter

46.
The first duty of a leader is to make himself be loved without courting love. To be loved without'playing up'to anyone - even to himself.
Andre Malraux

47.
Tell a person they are brave and you help them become so.
Carlyle, Thomas

48.
He who dreads hostility too much is unfit to rule.
Seneca

49.
The person who renders loyal service in a humble capacity will be chosen for higher responsibilities, just as the biblical servant who multiplied the one pound given him by his master was made ruler over ten cities...
Forbes, B. C.

50.
The highest of distinctions is service to others.
King George VI
