LEADERSHIP QUOTATIONS
“A leader is someone willing to give his strength to others so that they may have the strength to stand on their own.”

Beth Revis

“Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things.”

Peter F. Drucker

“A true leader has the confidence to stand alone, the courage to make tough decisions, and the compassion to listen to the needs of others. They do not set out to be a leader, but become one by the equality of their actions and the integrity of their intentions.”

Douglas MacArthur

“Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others.”

Jack Welch

“Great things can be achieved by leading through wisdom, empathy, and integrity—with no other agenda than humanity.”

Richard Branson

“If your actions create a legacy that inspires others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, then, you are an excellent leader.”

Dolly Parton

“A leader is a dealer in hope.”

Napoleon Bonaparte

“One of the tests of leadership is the ability to recognize a problem before it becomes an emergency.”

Arnold H. Glasow

“A leader is someone who demonstrates what's possible.”

Mark Yarnell

“Leadership is a two-way street. Respect for one's superiors; care for one's crew.”

Grace Hopper

“Treat people as if they were what they ought to be, and you help them become what they are capable of being.”

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

“The greatest leaders are not necessarily the ones who do the greatest things. They are the ones that inspire others to do great things.”

Ronald Reagan

Bob C. from Pig's Knuckle, AR JANUARY 4, 2013
Leadership creates action out of intention.

Elmer J Carreño from Jersey city, N.J NOVEMBER 29, 2012
"Great Leaders make followers into Great Leaders."

Diane from USA MAY 8, 2012
In order to lead, others must follow. I won't follow anyone who takes credit, but not blame.

Gerald T. from UpState NY APRIL 24, 2012
Anyone can be placed in a Leadership position... but that doesn't necessarily make them the Leader. True Leaders are granted Leadership by those that TRUST them.

Bruce Willingham from Warner Robins Ga MARCH 1, 2012
Leadership is influencing others toward a better future.

Logan from Kent, Washington SEPTEMBER 3, 2011
A leader is not one who jumps at a chance to be first, a Leader is one who jumps at the chance to give everything in their power to guide others through problems whether those same problems be thick or thin.

Stephen P. from Syracuse JUNE 27, 2011
True leaders are not those who strive to be first, but are first to strive and give it their all to envision the power of the team. By the strength of the leader, the power of the pack is unleashed.

Ken R. from Hampstead JUNE 23, 2011
I have come to learn that those in leadership positions are not necessarily leaders and those in subordinate positions are not necessarily subordinate; but it is those who can envision, construct and model behaviors that change the world who are real leaders.

Fir :) from Pennsylvania FEBRUARY 25, 2011
Leadership is like a battlefield. You have to fight for it.

E Net Arch from San Francisco JANUARY 17, 2011
Leadership is "Guiding Intent with Integrity"

Dave H from SC OCTOBER 1, 2010
A good leader respects those with whom s/he works, fosters participation, growth, loves the people and genuinely shows respect for the people they lead. A leader listens to advice of others and stands by decisions. But when wrong, readily admits mistakes, learns and acknowledges errors. And good leader stands faithful to core values that should be followed without exception regardless of the outcome.

Darlene from Cleveland, Ohio AUGUST 7, 2010
True leadership starts from the bottom, learns the structure, motivates others, and leads by example.

Steve (Roto) T. from Bristow, VA JANUARY 13, 2010
Real leadership manifests itself in the person who motivates a follower to do something s/he would not ever do in the absence of the leader, and GREAT leadership moves that follower to do virtually anything the leader asks, to the extent that self becomes secondary to both the follower AND the leader. And, when acting in that context, combining those actions with a noble and ethical objective, civilization moves forward and all of humanity benefits from a reinforcement of decency.

Hunter C. from Bonita Springs, FL JANUARY 6, 2010
Leadership is when ordinary people achieve extraordinary results.
