Top Very Good Leadership Quotes

Very Good Leadership Quotes By Ted Cruz

Congress needs to send a strong signal that direct communication with the leader of the free world is a privilege, particularly for a regime that has been as hostile as Iran has been towards America for more than three decades. President Rouhani needs to take these two simple steps to demonstrate good faith before any further discussions. — Ted Cruz

Very Good Leadership Quotes By Meghnad Desai

India had a very long independence movement. It started in 1886, [with] the first generation of Western-educated Indians. They were all liberals. They followed the Liberal Party in Britain, and they were very proud of their knowledge of parliamentary systems, parliamentary manners. They were big debaters. They [had], as it were, a long apprenticeship in training for being in power. Even when Gandhi made it a mass movement, the idea of elective representatives, elected working committees, elected leadership, all that stayed because basically Indians wanted to impress the British that they were going to be as good as the British were at running a parliamentary democracy. And that helped quite a lot. — Meghnad Desai

"That's what makes a good leader. — Patience Johnson

Very Good Leadership Quotes By George R R Martin

Ruling is hard. This was maybe my answer to Tolkien, whom, as much as I admire him, I do quibble with. Lord of the Rings had a very medieval philosophy: that if the king was a good man, the land would prosper. We look at real history and it's not that simple ... Real-life kings had real-life problems to deal with ... My people who are trying to rule don't have an easy time of it. Just having good intentions doesn't make you a wise king. — George R R Martin

Very Good Leadership Quotes By Laozi

The wise leader settles for good work and then lets others have the floor. — Laozi

Very Good Leadership Quotes By John C. Maxwell

When leaders learn and live good values, they make themselves more valuable and lift the value of other people. That is the foundation of positive leadership. — John C. Maxwell

Very Good Leadership Quotes By Tim Waterstone

Very Good Leadership Quotes By Fela Durotoye

Individual effort is good but collective effort is better. We need a NETWORK of nation builders — Fela Durotoye

Very Good Leadership Quotes By Kent Ingle

Discipline is "the systematic management of your life to prepare and position you for your divine design." Discipline and stewardship are one and the same. Discipline brings order to life and is absolutely required if we're going to be good stewards of the call to leadership. — Kent Ingle

Very Good Leadership Quotes By Colin Powell

Good leaders must know how to reward those who succeed and know when to retrain, move, or fire ineffective staff. — Colin Powell

Very Good Leadership Quotes By Johnny Hunt

Pastors spend a good bit of time helping people with their sin. Who helps them with their sin? — Johnny Hunt

Very Good Leadership Quotes By Anthony Bourdain

Always was Morocco. And recently the country's leadership seems to have embraced it in all its ill-reputed glory. The days of predatory poets in search of literary inspiration and young flesh are probably over for good. Hippies can just as easily get their bong riffs in Portland or Peoria. But the good stuff, the real good stuff, the sounds and smells and the look of Tangier
what you see and hear when you lean out the window and take it all in
that's here to stay. — Anthony Bourdain

Very Good Leadership Quotes By David Aaronovitch

Unless the Labour leadership candidates decide to settle the issue through televised mud-wrestling (Adam Boulton, I think, for referee, and he may even take part) they will find it hard to gain massive attention for their utterances. Nor would the wannabes be wise to sign up to Lord Adonis's optimistic gloom about the coalition not lasting. Watching David Laws this week going about deficit reduction with an avidity bordering on the erotic, I realised that there are very good reasons why the centre should hold. — David Aaronovitch

Very Good Leadership Quotes By Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum

Good leadership puts the interests of the community as a whole before those of any specific group. Credibility of leadership can only be established through action and not words. — Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum

Very Good Leadership Quotes By Dick Van Arsdale

I'm a firm believer in quiet confidence. By that I mean knowing inwardly that you are good, and not exhibiting a boastful attitude outwardly. If an athlete doesn't believe in himself, no one else will. — Dick Van Arsdale

Very Good Leadership Quotes By Charlie Higson

It's very important not to talk down to kids, and to give them something which they think is quite grown-up and hardcore. Kids themselves are very good at self-censoring. If they don't like something, if they think it's too strong for them, they'll simply stop reading. That's the thing about a book, you can't force someone to read it ... I think there's a lot in my books about friendship, leadership, about society and how it works, how we learn to live with each other and what skills do we need to make a viable society. Kids don't need to know any of that, they just want someone to be eaten again. — Charlie Higson

Very Good Leadership Quotes By John F. Kennedy

For, in a democracy, every citizen, regardless of his interest in politics, 'holds office'; every one of us is in a position of responsibility; and, in the final analysis, the kind of government we get depends upon how we fulfill those responsibilities. We, the people, are the boss, and we will get the kind of political leadership, be it good or bad, that we demand and deserve. — John F. Kennedy

Very Good Leadership Quotes By Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

Great leaders live and leave noble and indelible footprints. Any leader can start something. Any leader can do anything but, the real hallmark and a great measure of a great leader is not necessarily what happens now but, what happens later. The noble works of a true and a great leader stand the test of time and never vanish with time. — Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

Very Good Leadership Quotes By Robin S. Sharma

Stay committed to your mission, values, and the full self-expression of your inner leader even when people doubt you. When people say you'll fail or suggest you're not good enough, stand strong in your own skin and don't let them tear you down. Because leadership has a lot to do with believing in yourself when no one else believes in you. — Robin S. Sharma

Very Good Leadership Quotes By David Cottrell

So much of life is about attitude and how we handle what life throws our way. Life is good - even when a situation appears to be the worst. — David Cottrell

Good leaders are intelligent;
great leaders are wise.
Good leaders are bold;
great leaders are fearless.
Good leaders are artful;
great leaders are kind.
Good leaders are warriors;
great leaders are servants.
Good leaders are managers;
great leaders are innovators. — Matshona Dhliwayo

Very Good Leadership Quotes By Eric Schmidt

When a CEO looks around her staff meeting, a good rule of thumb is that at least 50 percent of the people at the table should be experts in the company's products and services and responsible for product development. This will help ensure that the leadership team maintains focus on product excellence. Operational components like finance, sales, and legal are obviously critical to a company's success, but they should not dominate the conversation. — Eric Schmidt

Very Good Leadership Quotes By Mark W. Boyer

Being a good leader does not require you possessing a fancy title, no more than possessing a fancy title makes you a good leader. — Mark W. Boyer

Very Good Leadership Quotes By Simon Sinek

Good leadership is hard to measure on a daily basis which is why so many default to doing what's easy to measure instead. — Simon Sinek

Very Good Leadership Quotes By Gary Rohrmayer

Our enemy attacks the conscience little by little seeking to wear us down and then wears out a leader's resolve to fight the good fight. — Gary Rohrmayer

Very Good Leadership Quotes By Philip Zimbardo

A good cult delivers on its promises. A good cult nourishes the needs of its members, has transparency and integrity, and creates provisions for challenging its leadership openly. A good cult expands the freedoms and well-being of its members rather than limits them. — Philip Zimbardo

Very Good Leadership Quotes By Rick Santorum

[Pope Francis] is a humble man. He lives the faith out in his own personal life ... He's here to be a shepherd; he isn't here to be a scold. I think that's a good thing for the church and for the world, frankly. — Rick Santorum

Very Good Leadership Quotes By Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

When we miss the meaning of a language, we miss the real essence and impact of communication. If we lose the real meaning of a language, we lose the real understanding of a language. Friendship is developed and nurtured through effective communication and that is the great tool that shapes friendship. A good communication, regardless of how short it might be is a great litmus paper that proves who a true friend or false friend is. A good communication does not only trigger the best bond but it also uncovers things in the heart that are hidden from the eyes. Without an effective communication, real friendship and real love between two great people is just like two great mountains with a valley between them. Without communication, we lose what we could have heard from real people. When we miss the meaning of a language, we miss the real essence and impact of communication!!! — Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

Very Good Leadership Quotes By John C. Maxwell

The single biggest way to impact an organization is to focus on leadership development. There is almost no limit to the potential of an organization that recruits good people, raises them up as leaders and continually develops them. — John C. Maxwell

Very Good Leadership Quotes By Napoleon Bonaparte

Under a good administration, the Nile gains on the desert. Under a bad one, the desert gains on the Nile. — Napoleon Bonaparte

Very Good Leadership Quotes By David Halberstam

He was very good, it turned out, at outlining the flaws in the government as long as someone else was in charge of the government. — David Halberstam

Very Good Leadership Quotes By Todd Stocker

Selflessness is the highest goal of good leaders. — Todd Stocker

Very Good Leadership Quotes By John Wooden

I believe one of the requirements of good leadership is the ability to listen - really listen - to those in your organization. An effective leader is very good at listening, and it's difficult to listen when you are talking. — John Wooden

Very Good Leadership Quotes By Bing Gordon

Even as an 18-year-old, I had to grow comfortable with my leadership style, which is that I was really impatient with under-motivated people - extremely impatient, to the point where I was counterproductive as a manager of underproductive people. And that hasn't really changed. If people need to be motivated, I'm no good. — Bing Gordon

Very Good Leadership Quotes By James M. Kouzes

Here's the rub. Leadership can be learned; however, not everyone wants to learn it, and not all those who learn about leadership master it. Why? Because becoming the very best requires a strong belief that you can learn and grow, an intense aspiration to excel, the determination to challenge yourself constantly, the recognition that you must engage the support of others, and the devotion to practice deliberately. Moreover, the best leaders realize that no matter how good they might be, they always can be even better, and are open to learning how to do so.4 — James M. Kouzes

Very Good Leadership Quotes By Patrick Hennessey

Good general differ from bad generals only in the degree to which they resist the psychopathology of the very organization they serve. Norman Dixon — Patrick Hennessey

Very Good Leadership Quotes By Sharad Vivek Sagar

Very often we sit back thinking good things will happen, knowing that good things take time and hoping that someone else will do it. The world needs us! — Sharad Vivek Sagar

Very Good Leadership Quotes By Richard J. Mouw

Here is Max De Pree at his best, and that is very good indeed. In Leading Without Power, De Pree shows us why we cannot master the how-to-dos of effective leadership without also being clear about what leaders?and followers?must be. In doing so, he not only provides us with much practical wisdom about creative leading and organizational health, he also nurtures our souls. This is a book to be savored by all who care about such things as vision, faithfulness, trust, and hope. — Richard J. Mouw

Very Good Leadership Quotes By Laszlo Bock

Part of the challenge with leadership is that it's very driven by gut instinct in most cases - and even worse, everyone thinks they're really good at it. The reality is that very few people are. — Laszlo Bock

Very Good Leadership Quotes By John Viney

If there is a trait which does characterize leaders it is opportunism. Successful people are very often those who steadfastly refuse to be daunted by disadvantage and have the ability to turn disadvantage to good effect. They are people who seize opportunity and take risks. Leadership then seems to be a matter of personality and character. — John Viney

Very Good Leadership Quotes By Roger Enrico

In really good companies, you have to lead. You have to come up with big ideas and express them forcefully. I have always been encouraged
or sometimes forced
to confront the very natural fear of being wrong. I was constantly pushed to find out what I really thought and then to speak up. Over time, I came to see that waiting to discover which way the wind was blowing is an excellent way to learn how to be a follower. — Roger Enrico

Very Good Leadership Quotes By Larry Ellison

It's fascinating as we continue to innovate and lead the way in both the application space and the database space. In the very beginning, people said you couldn't make relational databases fast enough to be commercially viable. I thought we could, and we were the first to do it. But we took tremendous abuse until IBM said, "Oh yeah, this stuff is good." — Larry Ellison

Very Good Leadership Quotes By Bill Russell

I hope I epitomize the American dream. For I came against long odds, from the ghetto to the very top of my profession. I was not immediately good at basketball. It did not come easy. It came as the result of a lot of hard work and self-sacrifice. The rewards, where they worth it? One thousand times over. — Bill Russell

Very Good Leadership Quotes By Ashlee Vance

I've learned that your intuition about things you don't know that much about isn't very good," Page said. "The way Elon talks about this is that you always need to start with the first principles of a problem. What are the physics of it? How much time will it take? How much will it cost? How much cheaper can I make it? There's this level of engineering and physics that you need to make judgments about what's possible and interesting. Elon is unusual in that he knows that, and he also knows business and organization and leadership and governmental issues. — Ashlee Vance

Very Good Leadership Quotes By John C. Maxwell

It is hard to feel bad about yourself when you are doing something good for someone else. There are a lot of ways to lift your self-esteem, but making a positive difference in another's life has got to be my best leadership guidance. Serving others and working to add value to them will lift your spirits in a way that nothing else will. Trust me on this one. — John C. Maxwell

Very Good Leadership Quotes By Asne Seierstad

Under a bad leadership Serbs are capable of committing the most terrible atrocities; under good leaders we can do great deeds. It's like a field - if it's not cared for, the weeds will take over. But if you tend it, water and feed the seeds, you will read a bountiful harvest. Serbs are lazy, we lack discipline and have no capacity for self-criticism." With Their Backs to the World — Asne Seierstad

Very Good Leadership Quotes By Winston Churchill

I let the argument rip healthily between the departments. This is a very good way to finding out the truth. — Winston Churchill

Very Good Leadership Quotes By Jim Yong Kim

No matter how good you think you are as a leader, my goodness, the people around you will have all kinds of ideas for how you can get better. So for me, the most fundamental thing about leadership is to have the humility to continue to get feedback and to try to get better - because your job is to try to help everybody else get better. — Jim Yong Kim

Very Good Leadership Quotes By M. Russell Ballard

Free and open expression coupled with visionary leadership generally encourages good decision-making. — M. Russell Ballard

I learnt to test the size of my brain..by trying this simple thought ! Look out for the good things, not the faults.It takes a good deal bigger sized brain to find out what is not wrong with people and things than to fins out what is wrong!!! — Abha Maryada Banerjee

Very Good Leadership Quotes By Bob Anderson

Once a good model gets inside you, it can inform and guide you throughout a lifetime. — Bob Anderson

Very Good Leadership Quotes By David Halberstam

He seemed touched by a larger spirit, his course guided by something beyond him, so talented, so able, so good-natured that he did not even inspire envy in a city rich with envy. — David Halberstam

Very Good Leadership Quotes By Brian Jacques

is because you are kind and good, not a hard-hearted pitiless rat like Cluny. Please listen to me. Even the strongest and bravest must sometimes weep. It shows they have a great heart, one that can feel compassion for others. You are brave, Matthias. Already you have done great things for one so young. I am only a simple country-bred fieldmouse, but even I can see the courage and leadership in you. A burning brand shows the way, and each day your flame grows brighter. — Brian Jacques

Very Good Leadership Quotes By Michael S. Horton

We ought to care for those closest to us in terms of relatedness. After our immediate family, we ought to pursue our calling diligently as employees and provide just incentives (perhaps through profit-sharing) and reasonable care for our workers as employers. We should seek the wisdom of teachers and elders in society and look to them for leadership, while rejecting their folly when it is discerned. We must put our children and their education, both at home and in school, before our own entertainment, pleasure, and success. We ought not to tolerate insolence or haughtiness in them; nor ought we to punish them too severely, but should lead them as good teachers, by example and patient instruction. — Michael S. Horton

Very Good Leadership Quotes By Jordan Carl Curtis

To be a good leader, you don't have to know what you're doing; you just have to act like you know what you're doing. — Jordan Carl Curtis

Very Good Leadership Quotes By Tony Abbott

Every prime minister has a whole series of networks, and there are official formal networks and there are unofficial informal networks. I'm lucky in that I have good official formal networks, starting with my own office, the leadership group, the cabinet and the party room. — Tony Abbott

Very Good Leadership Quotes By Mary Kay Ash

I believe that in order to be a good leader you must understand the value of praising people to success. — Mary Kay Ash

Very Good Leadership Quotes By John C. Maxwell

Successful leaders are like icebergs. When you look at an iceberg, you see only about 10 percent of it, and the rest of it is hidden under the water. When you look at successful leaders, you see only a fraction of their lives. You see the part that looks really good, but there's usually a lot that remains hidden that's neither exciting nor glamorous. Tennis star Arthur Ashe said, "True heroism is remarkably sober, very undramatic. It is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others at whatever the cost." True leadership is the same. — John C. Maxwell

Very Good Leadership Quotes By Gerry Adams

For good or ill, I'm a person of leadership. I do my best. I don't dodge responsibility. — Gerry Adams

Very Good Leadership Quotes By Ralph Waldo Emerson

Fashion understands itself; good-breeding and personal superiority of whatever country readily fraternize with those of every other. The chiefs of savage tribes have distinguished themselves in London and Paris, by the purity of their tournure. — Ralph Waldo Emerson

Very Good Leadership Quotes By Archibald Marwizi

It is amazing, the number of business executives and senior leaders who get to be appointed and elevated to positions of authority on the basis of technical competences whilst lacking essential grooming on basic good manners and customs of conduct that must come from the home training process. — Archibald Marwizi

Very Good Leadership Quotes By Ashlee Vance

Page holds Musk up as a model he wishes others would emulate - a figure that should be replicated during a time in which the businessmen and politicians have fixated on short-term, inconsequential goals. "I don't think we're doing a good job as a society deciding what things are really important to do," Page said. "I think like we're just not educating people in this kind of general way. You should have a pretty broad engineering and scientific background. You should have some leadership training and a bit of MBA training or knowledge of how to run things, organize stuff, and raise money. I don't think most people are doing that, and it's a big problem. Engineers are usually trained in a very fixed area. When you're able to think about all of these disciplines together, you kind of think differently and can dream of much crazier things and how they might work. I think that's really an important thing for the world. That's how we make progress. — Ashlee Vance

Very Good Leadership Quotes By Peter Drucker

Making good decisions is a crucial skill at every level. — Peter Drucker

Very Good Leadership Quotes By Larry Niven

One mark of a good officer, he remembered, was the ability to make quick decisions. If they happen to be right, so much the better — Larry Niven

Very Good Leadership Quotes By Gro Harlem Brundtland

It's very difficult to evaluate a leader in a very short-term perspective because to be a leader you must be able to have a long-term perspective. You must be able to carry changes which take many years. And this is why you can really only see whether it has been a good leadership after some years have passed. — Gro Harlem Brundtland

Very Good Leadership Quotes By Henna Inam

Authentic leadership is leading adaptively from your core, choosing who you're most inspired to be to serve the greatest good in this moment. — Henna Inam

Very Good Leadership Quotes By Jocelyn Murray

Very Good Leadership Quotes By Fred Lowe Soper

Very Good Leadership Quotes By Dee Hock

Making good judgments when one has complete data, facts, and knowledge is not leadership - it's bookkeeping — Dee Hock

Very Good Leadership Quotes By John Paul Warren

Life of any real value or substance is not formed during good times merely enjoyed. — John Paul Warren
