Some Thoughts On Leaders From Various Authors

“A leader is best
When people barely know he exists
Of a good leader, who talks little,
When his work is done, his aim fulfilled,
They will say, “We did this ourselves.”

Lao Tzu

“One problem with being a leader, is that even among your friends you are alone, for it is you — and you alone — to whom the others look for final guidance.”

Trenton Lee Stewart

“Those who mistrust their own abilities are being too wicked to themselves, discouraging themselves from doing what they should have been excelling in. If you are good at discouraging yourself, you can’t be a good leader because leadership is built on inspiring others to face challenges.”

Israelmore Ayivor

“A leader should always be open to criticism, not silencing dissent. Any leader who does not tolerate criticism from the public is afraid of their dirty hands to be revealed under heavy light. And such a leader is dangerous, because they only feel secure in the darkness. Only a leader who is free from corruption welcomes scrutiny; for scrutiny allows a good leader to be an even greater leader.”

Suzy Kassem

“Lead from the back — and let others believe they are in front.”

Nelson Mandela
