Are You A Leader?

“You are not here merely to make a living. You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourself if you forget the errand”–Woodrow Wilson.

“One of the most important marks of an effective leader–a leader other leaders can trust– is the willingness to accept total responsibility for the outcome”–Michael Hyatt.

“For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many”–Mark 10:45.

“True greatness, true leadership, is found in giving yourself in service to others, not in coaxing or inducing others to serve you”–Oswald Chambers.

“We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful about what we pretend to be”–Kurt Vonnegut.

“The first responsibility of a leader is to define reality. The last is to say thank you. In between the two, the leader must become a servant and a debtor”–Max DePree.

“Don’t follow the crowd, let the crowd follow you”–Margaret Thatcher.

“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 equality of his actions and the integrity of his intent”–Douglas MacArthur.
