Leadership
Leadership is both a research area and a practical skill encompassing the ability of an individual or organization to "lead" or guide other individuals, teams, or entire organizations. Specialist literature debates various viewpoints, contrasting Eastern and Western approaches to leadership, and also (within the West) United States versus European approaches. U.S. academic environments define leadership as "a process of social influence in which a person can enlist the aid and support of others in the accomplishment of a common task". Leadership seen from a European and non-academic perspective encompasses a view of a leader who can be moved not only by communitarian goals but also by the search for personal power.
Leadership
Character is what you are. Reputation is what others think you are. The reason that some fail to climb the ladder of success, or of leadership if you want to call it that, is that there is a difference between reputation and character. The two do not always coincide. A man may be considered to have sterling character. Opportunity might come to that man; but if he has the reputation for something he is not, he may fail that opportunity. I think character is the foundation of successful leadership.
Lucian Truscott, as quoted in Air Force Journal of Logistics, March 22, 2005, Notable quotes
Leadership
Leadership is a quality of those who earn the respect of others through the wisdom of the combination of their words and their actions.
Walter Grant IV, past President — University of Redlands Whitehead Leadership Society. As quoted in Leadership Greatness: Best Practices To Become A Great Leader By Tri Junarso
Leadership
A political leader must keep looking over his shoulder all the time to see if the boys are still there. If they aren’t still there, he’s no longer a political leader.
Bernard Baruch, as quoted in his obituary, New York Times (21 June 1965)
