Here is my pick of SIX quotes that define effective leadership:
1. The first responsibility of a leader is to define reality. The last is to say thank you. In between, the leader is a servant.
– Max DePree
2. Men are governed only by serving them; the rule is without exception.
– V. Cousin
3. If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.
– John Quincy Adams
4. Leadership is unlocking people’s potential to become better.
– Bill Bradley
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. Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.
Are YOU a leader? Are YOU an effective one at it?
