It is simply the view, and a view I think shared by most members of the party, that it is very difficult to have a leader that does not command the support of the parliamentary party.
A great leader also has the ability to make people an inch taller in his presence.
N. R. Narayana Murthy
In other words, don't expect to always be great. Disappointments, failures and setbacks are a normal part of the lifecycle of a unit or a company and what the leader has to do is constantly be up and say 'we have a problem, let's go and get it'.
The hardest thing about being a leader is demonstrating or showing vulnerability... When the leader demonstrates vulnerability and sensibility and brings people together, the team wins.
The Christian leader of the future is called to be completely irrelevant and to stand in this world with nothing to offer but his or her own vulnerable self. God loves us, not because of what we do or accomplish, but because God has created and redeemed us in love.
Leadership is hard to define and good leadership even harder. But if you can get people to follow you to the ends of the earth, you are a great leader.
I think the must-have power qualities for a female or male power leader are really the ability to focus, to work hard, to be extremely goal oriented and to not let the noise and the nonsense interfere with your mission - what you really feel you want to do with your career and your life.
The man who lets a leader prescribe his course is a wreck being towed to the scrap heap.
Leadership consists not in degrees of technique but in traits of character; it requires moral rather than athletic or intellectual effort, and it imposes on both leader and follower alike the burdens of self-restraint.
Lewis H. Lapham
A leader must be a good listener. He must be willing to take counsel. He must show a genuine concern and love for those under his stewardship.
James E. Faust
People, like sheep, tend to follow a leader - occasionally in the right direction.
Some of my Democratic friends don't like it when I say that, but Ronald Reagan was once a Democrat and still a leader. He brought strong people around him, and he had a vision for where he wanted to take the country.
I never could be a partisan leader - a man of one idea.
Today, we are on a path of decay. We are seeing the book close on five decades of accomplishment as the leader in human space exploration.
A person, who no matter how desperate the situation, gives others hope, is a true leader.
Never forget that no military leader has ever become great without audacity.
Carl von Clausewitz
It's very important to take risks. I think that research is very important, but in the end you have to work from your instinct and feeling and take those risks and be fearless. When I hear a company is being run by a team, my heart sinks, because you need to have that leader with a vision and heart that can move things forward.
When the best leader's work is done the people say, 'We did it ourselves.'
I am an international leader, the dean of the Arab rulers, the king of kings of Africa and the imam of Muslims, and my international status does not allow me to descend to a lower level.
Leaders cannot work in a vacuum. They may take on larger, seemingly more important roles in an organization, but this does not exclude them from asking for and using feedback. In fact, a leader arguably needs feedback more so than anyone else. It's what helps a leader respond appropriately to events in pursuit of successful outcomes.
To remain a credible leader, I must always work first, hardest, and longest on changing myself. This is neither easy nor natural, but it is essential.
John C. Maxwell
Leadership is an act of submission to God. To be a leader means listening to all kinds of people and situations. Out of that listening, we are hoping to discern the mind of God as best we can. This is the price of leadership - it's an act of sacrifice. So leadership is part and parcel of the work of submission to God.
There are times when a leader must move out ahead of the flock, go off in a new direction, confident that he is leading his people the right way.
There is no greater name for a leader than mother or father. There is no leadership more important than parenthood.
Sheri L. Dew
To be successful in coaching you have to treat your team like a family. The leader needs backing from everyone.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Leonardo da Vinci
