Read inspirational quotes from some of the top business, leadership and management minds.
The first responsibility of a leader is to define reality. The last is to say thank you. In between, the leader is a servant
The best example of leadership is leadership by example.
We must examine the concept of superior and subordinate with increasing skepticism. We must examine the concept of management and labor with new beliefs. And we must examine the nature of organizations that demand such distinctions with an entirely different consciousness. It is true leadership; leadership by everyone; leadership in, up, around, and down this world so badly needs, and dominator management it so sadly gets.
When the only tool you own is a hammer, every problem begins to resemble a nail.
Good leaders must first become good servants.
Leadership without support is like trying to make bricks without enough straw. True leaders reinforce their ideas and plans with strategic partnerships, alliances and supportive audiences.
Leadership should be born out of the understanding of the needs of those who would be affected by it.
A leader is a dealer in hope

If you really want the last word in an argument, try saying, 'I guess you're right.'
