I just thought I'd share some insightful quotes about great leaders:
"Leaders don't create followers, they create more leaders."
~ Tom Peters
"A good leader is a person who takes a little more than his share of the blame and a little less than his share of the credit."
~ John C. Maxwell
"The real leader has no need to lead - he is content to point the way."
~ Henry Miller, The Wisdom of the Heart
"A leader leads by example not by Force."
~ Sun Tzu
"Leadership is based on a spiritual quality; the power to inspire, the power to inspire others to follow."
~ Vince Lombardi
"I praise loudly, I blame softly."
~ Catherine the Great
"A leader has the vision and conviction that a dream can be achieved. He inspires the power and energy to get it done."
~ Ralph Nader
"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
"All of the great leaders have had one characteristic in common: it was the willingness to confront unequivocally the major anxiety of their people in their time. This, and not much else, is the essence of leadership."
~ John Kenneth Galbraith
"Leadership must be based on goodwill. Goodwill does not mean posturing and, least of all, pandering to the mob. It means obvious and wholehearted commitment to helping followers. We are tired of leaders we fear, tired of leaders we love, and of tired of leaders who let us take liberties with them. What we need for leaders are men of the heart who are so helpful that they, in effect, do away with the need of their jobs. But leaders like that are never out of a job, never out of followers. Strange as it sounds, great leaders gain authority by giving it away."
~ Admiral James B. Stockdale
"Great leaders are almost always great simplifiers, who can cut through argument, debate, and doubt to offer a solution everybody can understand."
~ General Colin Powell
"The ability to summon positive emotions during periods of intense stress lies at the heart of effective leadership."
