"Skill in the art of communication is crucial to a leader's success. He can accomplish nothing unless he can communicate effectively."
"Leadership is the wise use of power. Power is the capacity to translate intention into reality and sustain it."
"Six traits of effective leaders: 1. Make others feel important; 2. Promote a vision; 3. Follow the golden rule; 4. Admit mistakes; 5. Criticize others only in private; 6. Stay close to the action. Example has more followers than reason. We unconsciously imitate what pleases us, and approximate to the characters we most admire."
Christian Nevell Bovee
"Leadership is the art of getting someone else to do something you want done because he wants to do it."
Dwight D. Eisenhower
"A leader has the vision and conviction that a dream can be achieved. He inspires the power and energy to get it done."
"The best leaders are those most interested in surrounding themselves with assistants and associates smarter than they are. They are frank in admitting this and are willing to pay for such talents."
"Reason and judgment are the qualities of a leader."
- Publius Cornelius Tacitus
