In a team….

In a team setting, leadership is shared by a community of people, which counters the tendency for pastors to form congregations in their own images.

– Adam S. McHugh

As a leader…

… you’re probably not doing a good job unless your employees can do a good impression of you when you’re not around.

– Patrick Lencioni

True leadership…

… strengthens the followers. It is a process of teaching, setting an example, and empowering others. If you seek to lead, your ability will ultimately be measured in the successes of those around you.

– David Niven

 

Contrary to…

… popular opinion, leadership is not a reserved position for a particular group of people who were elected or appointed, ordained or enthroned. Leadership is self-made, self-retained, self-inculcated and then exposed through a faithful, sincere and exemplary life.

– Israelmore Avivor

Those who are ….

….. successfully to lead their fellow-men, should have once possessed the nobler feelings. We have all known individuals whose magnanimity was not likely to be troublesome on any occasion; but then they betrayed their own interests by unwisely omitting the consideration, that such feelings might exist in the breasts of those whom they had to guide and govern: for they themselves cannot even remember the time when in their eyes justice appeared preferable to expediency, the happiness of others to self-interest, or the welfare of a State to the advancement of a party.

– Arthur Helps
