Leadership is a potent combination of strategy and character. But if you must be without one, be without the strategy.
Effective leadership is putting first things first. Effective management is discipline, carrying it out.
Leadership can not be measured in a poll or even in the result of an election. It can only be truly seen with the benefit of time. From the perspective of 20 years, not 20 days.
Leadership is unlocking people’s potential to become better.
Leadership is a privilege to the better lives of others. It is not an opportunity to satisfy personal greed.
Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others.
If you delegate tasks, you create followers. If you delegate authority, you create leaders.
Leaders aren’t born, they are made. And they are made just like anything else, through hard work. And that’s the price we’ll have to pay to achieve that goal, or any goal.
Good leadership isn’t about advancing yourself. It’s about advancing your team.
Leadership cannot be given. It must be earned. It cannot be taken away. You lose it by lack of performance.
