TAJUK 65: QUOTABLE QUOTES ON LEADERSHIP

LEADERSHIP QUOTES



The task of leadership is not to put greatness into people, but to elicit it, for the greatness is there already.
John Buchan

The best executive is the one who has sense enough to pick good men to do what he wants done, and self-restraint to keep from meddling with them while they do it.
Theodore Roosevelt


To lead people, walk beside them … As for the best leaders, the people do not notice their existence. The next best, the people honor and praise. The next, the people fear; and the next, the people hate … When the best leader’s work is done the people say, ‘We did it ourselves!
Lao-Tsu


Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
Harold R. McAlindon


If I have seen farther than others, it is because I was standing on the shoulder of giants.
Isaac Newton


I am a man of fixed and unbending principles, the first of which is to be flexible at all times.
Everett Dirksen


Leadership: the art of getting someone else to do something you want done because he wants to do it.
Dwight D. Eisenhower


In times of change, learners inherit the Earth, while the learned find themselves beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists.
Eric Hoffer


The price of greatness is responsibility.
Winston Churchill


I must follow the people. Am I not their leader?
Benjamin Disraeli


Example is not the main thing in influencing others, it is the only thing.

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


The final test of a leader is that he leaves behind him in other men, the conviction and the will to carry on.
Walter Lippman


If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.
John Quincy Adams


I cannot give you the formula for success, but I can give you the formula for failure: which is: Try to please everybody.
Herbert B. Swope


High sentiments always win in the end, The leaders who offer blood, toil, tears and sweat always get more out of their followers than those who offer safety and a good time. When it comes to the pinch, human beings are heroic.
George Orwell


The key to successful leadership today is influence, not authority.
Kenneth Blanchard


Our chief want is someone who will inspire us to be what we know we could be.
Ralph Waldo Emerson


The very essence of leadership is that you have to have vision. You can’t blow an uncertain trumpet.
Theodore M. Hesburgh


I think leadership comes from integrity – that you do whatever you ask others to do. I think there are non-obvious ways to lead. Just by providing a good example as a parent, a friend, a neighbor makes it possible for other people to see better ways to do things. Leadership does not need to be a dramatic, fist in the air and trumpets blaring, activity.
Scott Berkun


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 Drucker


Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.
Steve Jobs


As we look ahead into the next century, leaders will be those who empower others.
Bill Gates


It is impossible to imagine anything which better becomes a ruler than mercy.
Seneca


Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, concerned citizens can change world. Indeed it is the only thing that ever has.
Margaret Mead


There go the people. I must follow them for I am their leader.
Alexandre Ledru-Rollin

What chance gathers she easily scatters. A great person attracts great people and knows how to hold them together. 
Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

A general is just as good or just as bad as the troops under his command make him.
General Douglas MacArthur

Men are governed only by serving them; the rule is without exception.
V. Cousin

The real leader has no need to lead-he is content to point the way.
Henry Miller

Not the cry, but the flight of a wild duck, leads the flock to fly and follow.
Chinese Proverb

Be known for pleasing others, espcecially if you govern them...Ruling other has one advantage: you can do more good than anyone else.
Baltasar Gracián

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

A leader is a dealer in hope.
Napoleon Bonaparte

Rely on your own strength of body and soul. Take for your star self-reliance, faith, honesty and industry. Don't take too much advice — keep at the helm and steer your own ship, and remember that the great art of commanding is to take a fair share of the work. Fire above the mark you intend to hit. Energy, invincible determination with the right motive, are the levers that move the world.
Noah Porter

There is always room for a man of force and he makes room for many. Society is a troop of thinkers and the best heads among them take the best places.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader. 

John Quincy Adams

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

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.

Misfortunes, untoward events, lay open, disclose the skill of a general, while success conceals his weakness, his weak points.

I light my candle from their torches.
Robert Burton

Leadership does not always wear the harness of compromise.
Woodrow Wilson

The greater a man is in power above others, the more he ought to excel them in virtue. None ought to govern who is not better than the governed.
Publius Syrus

A bold onset is half the battle.
Giuseppe Garibaldi


The power is detested, and miserable the life, of him who wishes to be feared rather than to be loved.
Cornelius Nepos

To be a great leader and so always master of the situation, one must of necessity have been a great thinker in action. An eagle was never yet hatched from a goose's egg.

A good general not only sees the way to victory; he also knows when victory is impossible.
