105.Leadership

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 – Peter F. Drucker.

Leadership is the special quality which enables people to stand up and pull the rest of us over the horizon – James L. Fisher.

Leadership is the challenge to be something more than average – Jim Rohn

No organization is stronger than the quality of its leadership, or ever extends its constituency far beyond the degree to which its leadership is representative – Edgar Powell.

The nation will find it very hard to look up to the leaders who are keeping their ears to the ground – Winston Churchill

Leadership should be more participative than directive, more enabling than performing – Mary D. Poole.

To lead the people, walk behind them – Lao-tzu

Leaders don’t force people to follow-they invite them on a journey – Charles S. Lauer

When the leadership is right and the time is right, the people can always be counted upon to follow-to the end and at all costs – Harold J. Seymour

It is better to have a lion at the head of an army of sheep, than a sheep at the head of an army of lions – Daniel Defoe
