Leadership Quotes
1) The art is getting someone else to do something you want done because he wants to do it. – Dwight D. Eisenhower

2) Go to the people. Learn from them. Live with them. Start with what they know. Build with what they have. The best of leaders when the job is done, when the task is accomplished, the people will say we have done it ourselves. – Lao Tzu

3) He who has never learned to obey cannot be a good commander. – Aristotle

4) The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy. – Martin Luther King, Jr.

11) A good objective of leadership is to help those who are doing poorly to do well and to help those who are doing well to do even better. – Jim Rohn

12) The leaders who work most effectively, it seems to me, never say “I”. And that’s not because they have trained themselves not to say “I”. They don’t think “I”. They think “we”; they think “team”. They understand their job to be to make the team function. They accept responsibility and don’t sidestep it, but “we” gets the credit. This is what creates trust, what enables you to get the task done. – Peter F. Drucker

13) I always remember the axiom: a leader…is like a shepherd. He stays behind the flock, letting the most nimble go out ahead, whereupon the others follow, not realizing that all along they are being directed from behind. – Nelson Mandela

14) 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. – Jim Rohn

15) No man will make a great leader who wants to do it all himself or get all the credit for doing it. – Andrew Carnegie

16) It is better to lead from behind and to put others in front, especially when you celebrate victory when nice things occur. You take the front line when there is danger. Then people will appreciate your leadership. – Nelson Mandela

17) I suppose leadership at one time meant muscles; but today it means getting along with people. – Mohandas Gandhi

18) Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other. – John F. Kennedy

19) Effective leadership is putting first things first. Effective management is discipline, carrying it out. – Stephen Covey

20) Men make history and not the other way around. In periods where there is no leadership, society stands still. Progress occurs when courageous, skillful leaders seize the opportunity to change things for the better. – Harry S. Truman
