The most dangerous leadership myth is that leaders are born — that there is a genetic factor to leadership. This myth asserts that people simply either have certain charismatic qualities or not. That’s nonsense; in fact, the opposite is true. Leaders are made rather than born. And the way we become leaders is by learning about leadership through life and job experiences, not with university degrees.
Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things.
Peter F. Drucker
A person who is quietly confident makes the best leader.
Be the leader you wish you had.
Find the right people, not the best people.
One of the tests of leadership is the ability to recognize a problem before it becomes an emergency.
