Become the kind of leader that people would follow voluntarily; even if you had no title or position.
A leader is a dealer in hope.
Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality.
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. He does not set out to be a leader, but becomes one by the equality of his actions and the integrity of his intent.
Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity.
Leadership is solving problems. The day soldiers stop bringing you their problems is the day you have stopped leading them. They have either lost confidence that you can help or concluded you do not care.
To handle yourself, use your head; to handle others, use your heart.
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.
A leader takes people where they want to go. A great leader takes people where they don’t necessarily want to go, but ought to be.
Leadership should be born out of the understanding of the needs of those who would be affected by it.
