So often we become consumed with telling people what to do that we forget the true essence of leadership. Take a few minutes and learn from those who came before.
As a follower, you must know who to follow. As a leader, you must earn your followers!
As we look ahead into the next century, leaders will be those who empower others.
Lead me follow me or get the hell out of my way!
A leader leads by example, not by force.
A leader is a dealer in hope.
John C. Maxwell
A good leader is a person who takes a little more than his share of the blame and little less than his share of the credit.
Anthony J. D’Angelo

You can’t lead anyone else further than you have gone yourself.
Unless commitment is made, there are only promises and hopes…but no plans.
Theodore M. Hesburgh
The very essence of leadership is that you have to have vision. you can’t blow an uncertain trumpet.
Be sure you’re right…then go ahead!
The real leader has no need to lead, he is content to point the way.
The leader has to be practical and a realist, yet must talk the language of the visionary and the idealist.
Harvey S. Firestone
The growth and development of people is the highest calling of leadership.
The greatest leader is not necessarily the one who does the greatest things. He is the one that gets the people to do the greatest things.
People ask the difference between a leader and a boss…The leader works in the open, and the boss in covert. The leader leads, and the boss drives.
Dennis A. Peer
One measure of leadership is the caliber of people who choose to follow you.
No man will make a great leader who wants to do it all himself, or to get all the credit for doing it.
Short sweet and to the point. Everyday, take the time to learn from those who came before you on how to become a better leader. Leaders are forged, not born.
