Great Leadership Quotes From Effective Leaders

Great Leadership Quotes From Effective LeadersGreat quotes from effective leadership styles can help define true leaders?

Leaders are varied in their skills and abilities.  Some possess a transformational leadership style, others have an autocratic leadership style.  To become a strong leader there must be an understanding of “who you are.”

Douglas MacArthur once said, “A true leader has the confidence to stand alone, the courage to make tough decisions, and the compassion to listen to the needs of others. He does not set out to be a leader, but becomes one by the equality of his actions and the integrity of his intent.”

Ross Perot also said, “Lead and inspire people. Don’t try to manage and manipulate people. Inventories can be managed but people must be lead.”
