Finished Reading 100 Quotation/Principle of all time : Lovely Leadership Quotes

with 2 comments


This book is really nice and simple. It contains great quotations of the qualities that leader has. It is categorized well. I think everybody should go through the list once. Each one is jewel in itself.

Some of my favorites are as below:


Many people have ideas on how others should change; few people have ideas on how they should change. = Leo Tolstoy

The first method for estimating the intelligence of a ruler is to look at the men he has around him. = Niccolo Machiavelli

There’s nothing more demoralizing than a leader who can’t clearly articulate why we’re doing what we’re doing. = James Kouzes and Barry Posner

I cannot trust a man to control others who cannot control himself. = Robert E. Lee

A true leader has to have a genuine open-door policy so that his people are not afraid to approach him for any reason. = Harold Geneen

Delegating work works, provided the one delegating works too. = Robert Half

You do not lead by hitting people over the head—that’s assault, not leadership. = Dwight D. Eisenhower

Leadership is solving problems. The day soldiers stop bringing you their problems is the day you have stopped leading them. They have either lost confidence that you can help or concluded you do not care. Either case is a failure of leadership. = Karl Popper

Lead and inspire people. Don’t try to manage and manipulate people. Inventories can be managed but people must be led. = Ross Perot

In order to make a fire burn, you fan the live coals. In order to keep your organization fired up, it’s imperative that you find and motivate the leaders or potential leaders in your organization regardless of how far down the line they might be. = Dexter Yager

Have patience. All things are difficult before they become easy. = Saadi Shirazi

And Many More… Beautiful book…worth reading. 10/10. 🙂
