"All leadership is influence"
"Leaders must be close enough to relate to others but far enough ahead to motivate them"
"Leadership is influence. It is the ability to obtain followers. When the leader lacks confidence, the followers have no commitment. A leader is great not because of his power, but because of his ability to empower others"
"The pessimist complains about the wind. The optomist expects it to change. The leader adjusts the sails"
"The first step to leadership is servanthood"
