Best Quotes about Leadership
I learned that a great leader is a man who has the ability to get other people to do what they don't want to do and like it.
Truman, Harry S
I've always found that the speed of the boss is the speed of the team.
Napoleon affords us an example of the danger of elevating one's self to the absolute, and sacrificing everything to the carrying out of an idea.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
The penalty of leadership is loneliness.
Robinson, H. Wheeler
The first thing a great person does, is make us realize the insignificance of circumstance.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
The first task of a leader is to keep hope alive.
A leader is someone who helps improve the lives of other people or improve the system they live under.
Reason and judgment are the qualities of a leader.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius
I must follow the people. Am I not their leader?
When a customer enters my store, forget me. He is king.
The wealth of kings is in the affections of their subjects.
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.
Leaders don't inflict pain -- they share pain.
Leadership is the art of getting someone else to do something you want done because he wants to do it.
Eisenhower, Dwight D.
Time and money spent in helping men to do more for themselves is far better than mere giving.
When the best leader's work is done the people say, We did it ourselves.
So much of what we call management consists in making it difficult for people to work.
When placed in command -- take charge.
Popularity is not leadership.
Leadership involves finding a parade and getting in front of it.
A leader is best when people barely know he exists, not so good when people obey and acclaim him, worse when they despise him. But of a good leader who talks little when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: We did it ourselves.
The successful man doesn't use others, other people use the successful man, for above all the success is of service.
An army of deer would be more formidable commanded by a lion, than an army of lions commanded by a stag.
Anyone can steer the ship when the sea is calm.
Those that rule must hear and be deaf, must see and be blind.
The world of the 90s and beyond will belong to managers or those who make the numbers dance, as we used to say, or those who are conversant with all the business jargon we used to sound smart. The world will belong to passionate, driven leaders -- people who not only have an enormous amount of energy but who can energize those whom they lead.
Public sentiment is everything, with it nothing can fail, without it nothing can succeed.
Leadership appears to be the art of getting others to want to do something you are convinced should be done.
He who dreads hostility too much is unfit to rule.
A leader is a person you will follow to a place you wouldn't go by yourself.
Barker, Joel A.
Pull the string, and it will follow wherever you wish. Push it, and it will go nowhere at all.
Eisenhower, Dwight D.
It is the Vague and Elusive. Meet it and you will not see its head. Follow it and you will not see its back.
The best leaders... almost without exception and at every level, are master users of stories and symbols.
Peters, Thomas J.
People ask the difference between a leader and a boss. The leader works in the open, and the boss in covert. The leader leads, and the boss drives.
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.
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.
The high sentiments always win in the end, the leaders who offer blood, toil, tears, and sweat always get more out of their followers than those who offer safety and a good time. When it comes to the pinch, human beings are heroic.
I suppose leadership at one time meant muscles; but today it means getting along with people.
A good leader takes a little more than his share of the blame, a little less than his share of the credit.
Glasgow, Arnold H.
Eagles don't flock, you have to find them one at a time.
Perot, H. Ross
If I advance, follow me! If I retreat, kill me! If I die, avenge me!
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
Leadership must be established from the top down.
A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way and shows the way.
Maxwell, John C.
Management is about arranging and telling. Leadership is about nurturing and enhancing.
Peters, Thomas J.
If you lead the people with correctness, who will dare not be correct?
We will make them think it's their idea. That's how all great leaders fool people.
The very essence of leadership is that you have to have vision. You can't blow an uncertain trumpet.
Hesburgh, Theodore M.
Leadership is action, not position.
Mcgannon, Donald H.
Blessed are the people whose leaders can look destiny in the eye without flinching but also without attempting to play God.
The person who has no enemies has no followers.
