The key to successful leadership today is influence, not authority.
A leader knows what's best to do. A manager knows merely how best to do it.
A leader is best when people barely know he exists, not so good when people obey and acclaim him and worse when they despise him. But of a good leader who talks little when his work done, his aim fulfilled, they will say, “We did it ourselves.”
When the effective leader is finished with his work, the people say "it happened naturally."
Leadership is getting players to believe in you. If you tell a team-mate you're ready to play as tough as you're able to, you'd better go out there and do it. Players will see right through a phony. And they can tell when you're not giving it all you've got. Leadership is diving for a loose ball, getting the crowd involved, getting other players involved. It's being able to take it as well as dish it out. That's the only way you're going to get respect from the players.
Leadership today is about understanding that the market imperatives of growth, change and innovation and the community imperatives of safety, security and certainty are not mutually exclusive. Today's leaders in business and the community know their job is not to make either-or choices but to get the balance right.
A leader is one who sees more than others see and who sees farther than others see and who sees before others see.
Every man must be his own leader. He now knows enough not to follow other people. He must follow the light that's within himself and through this light he will create a new community.
(Sir Laurens van der Post)
