Failing organisations are usually over-managed and under-led.
Warren G. Bennis
Leadership is unlocking people’s potential to become better.
A leader certainly needs a clear vision of the organisation and where it is going, but a vision is of little value unless it is shared in a way so as to generate enthusiasm and commitment. Leadership and communication are inseparable.
Earn the right to be heard by listening to others. Seek to understand a situation before making judgments about it. John Maxwell
A good leader takes a little more than his share of the blame, a little less than his share of the credit.
The price of greatness is responsibility.
It is hard to look up to a leader who keeps his ear to the ground.
The day soldiers stop bringing you their problems is the day you have stopped leading them.
General Colin Powell
A dream is just a dream. A goal is a dream with a plan and a deadline.
Treat a man as he is and he will remain as he is. Treat a man as he can and should be and he will become as he can and should be.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Leaders don’t create followers, they create more leaders.
