Being a leader doesn’t mean that you always have to be in the spotlight. You don’t even have to have the title of CEO or be an executive. Being a leader is about having the right attitude and standing firm enough for someone else to follow you. Here are a few quotes from some of the leaders of our time. Let’s see what they have to say about leadership.
“Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality.”
~Warren G. Bennis
“A leader takes people where they want to go. A great leader takes people where they don’t necessarily want to go, but ought to be.”
“The pessimist complains about the wind. The optimist expects it to change. The leader adjusts the sails.”
Here is a quote, one of my favorite, though the author is unknown the words are timeless.
“A true leader has the confidence to stand alone, the courage to make tough decisions, and the compassion to listen to the needs of others. He does not set out to be a leader, but becomes one by the quality of his actions and the integrity of his intent.”
