Nothing so conclusively proves a man’s ability to lead others as what he does from day to day to lead himself.
–Thomas J. Watson
A chief is a man who assumes responsibility. He says “I was beaten,” he does not say “My men were beaten.”
–Antoine de Saint-Exupery
A leader leads by example, whether he intends to or not.
Leadership is action, not position.
–Donald H. McGannon
You can’t lead anyone else further than you have gone yourself.
Example is not the main thing in influencing others. It is the only thing.
Leaders are visionaries with a poorly developed sense of fear and no concept of the odds against them.
Remember the difference between a boss and a leader; a boss says “Go!” – a leader says “Let’s go!”
