Leadership Unit 2: leadership, motivation & management styles
What is leadership?
The art of leadership is saying no, not saying yes. It is very easy to say yes - Tony Blair
A sense of humour is part of the art of leadership , of getting along with people, of getting things done - Dwight D Eisenhower
We need not just a new generation of leadership but a new gender of leadership – Bill Clinton
To lead people, walk beside them — Lao-tsu
One measure of leadership is the calibre of people who choose to follow you - Dennis Peer
Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things – Peter F Drucker
A leader leads by example, whether he intends to or not - Unknown
Remember the difference between a boss and a leader. A boss says, Go! A leader says, Let's go! - E.M. Kelly
Leadership is not magnetic personality — that can just as well be a glib tongue. It is not ‘making friends and influencing people’ — that is flattery. Leadership is lifting a person’s vision to high sights, the raising of a person’s performance to a higher standard, the building of a personality beyond its normal limitations.
