1

The growth and development of people is the highest calling of leadership. The function of leadership is to produce more leaders not more followers.

2

The mark of a great man is one who knows when to set aside the important things in order to accomplish the vital ones.

3

Never give an order that can not be obeyed. Lead me, follow me, or get the hell out of my way.

4

Example is not the main thing in influencing others. It is the only thing. He who cannot be a good follower cannot be a good leader.

5

Lead and inspire people. Do not try to manage and manipulate people. Inventories can be managed but people must be led.

6

A man who wants to lead the orchestra must turn his back on the crowd. Without initiative, leaders are simply workers in leadership positions.

7

To do great things is difficult; but to command great things is more difficult. A cowardly leader is the most dangerous of men.

8

To handle yourself, use your head; to handle others, use your heart. Being responsible sometimes means pissing people off.

9

No man will make a great leader who wants to do it all himself, or to get all the credit for doing it.

10

It is not about you. It is about them. The greatest leaders mobilize others by coalescing people around a shared vision.

11

One person with commitment accomplishes more than a thousand with an opinion. Leadership comes in small acts as well as bold strokes.

12

Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things. Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.

13

Do not tell people how to do things, tell them what to do and let them surprise you with their results.

14

Leaders must be close enough to relate to others, but far enough ahead to motivate them.

15

He that thinketh he leadeth and hath no one following him is only taking a walk. A leader is a dealer in hope.

16

Great leaders are not defined by the absence of weakness, but rather by the presence of clear strengths.

17

My job is not to be easy on people. My job is to make them better. Our chief want is someone who will inspire us to be what we know we could be.

18

Do not necessarily avoid sharp edges. Occasionally they are necessary to leadership. Leadership is a choice, not a position.

19

People who enjoy meetings should not be in charge of anything. Earn your leadership every day.

20

In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock. You manage things; you lead people.
