Some Leaders' Thoughts On Leading

  • Success in almost any field depends more on energy and drive than it does on intelligence. This explains why we have so many stupid leaders.--Sloan Wilson
  • When I finally got a management position, I found out how hard it is to lead and manage people.--Guy Kawasaki
  • It is a terrible thing to look over your shoulder when you are trying to lead  and find no one there.--Franklin D. Roosevelt
  • A leader must have the courage to act against an expert’s advice.--James Callaghan
  • You can build a throne with bayonets, but you can’t sit on it for long.--Boris Yeltsin
  • Leadership involves finding a parade and getting in front of it.--John Naisbitt
  • I suppose leadership at one time meant muscles; but today it means getting along with people.--Mohandas K. Ghandi
  • Never forget that only dead fish swim with the stream.--Malcolm Muggeridge
  • I must follow the people. Am I not their leader?--Benjamin Disraeli
  • Great leadership does not mean running away from reality. Sometimes the hard truths might just demoralize the company, but at other times sharing difficulties can inspire people to take action that will make the situation better.--John Kotter
