10 Inspirational Quotes On Leadership

No company, big or small, can grow without a leader.

There must be someone who is ready to take responsibility for the overall direction the company is heading to. And it is the leader’s role to help the people in the company develop their leadership skills too.

Here are the best 10 quotes on leadership I personally find very inspiring, knowing how difficult (and lonely) it is sometimes to act in the leadership role:

1. “The greatest leader is not necessarily the one who does the greatest things. He is the one that gets the people to do the greatest things.” – Ronald Reagan

2. “Don’t tell people how to do things, tell them what to do and let them surprise you with their results.” – George Patton

3. “The responsibility of leadership is not to come up with all the ideas but to create an environment in which great ideas can thrive.” – Simon Sinek

4. “Leadership is not just about giving energy… it’s unleashing other people’s energy.” – Paul Polman

5. “A leader takes people where they want to go. A great leader takes people where they don’t necessarily want to go, but ought to be.” – Rosalynn Carter

6. “Leadership is not about titles, positions, or flow charts. It is about one life influencing another.” – John C. Maxwell

7. “A leader isn’t someone who forces others to make him stronger; a leader is someone willing to give his strength to others so that they may have the strength to stand on their own.” – Beth Revis

8. “The challenge of leadership is to be strong but not rude; be kind, but not weak; be bold, but not a bully; be humble, but not timid; be proud, but not arrogant; have humor, but without folly.” – Jim Rohn

9. “I start with the premise that the function of leadership is to produce more leaders, not more followers.” – Ralph Nader
