I have found these leadership quotes over the years have inspired and directed in times of change and at times of intense decision making. These have been times when leadership has been important.
These quotes will assist at all the levels of leadership, whether it be: self leadership, team leadership such as projects, departments) and in organisational leadership.
My favourite is:
Don't tell people how to do things, tell them what to do and let them surprise you with their results.
~ George S. Patton
I have always been happily surprised by the initiative, ability and self esteem that comes from carefully applying the wisdom from this true leadership quote.
The above quote is further qualified by Theodore Roosevelt
The best executive is the one who has sense enough to pick good men to do what he wants done, and self-restraint to keep from meddling with them while they do it.
~ Theodore Roosevelt

It is hoped that you will feel inspired, and maybe even directed in your deciion making.
This collection will grow as more quotes are added from my notebooks.
Go to the people
Learn from them
Start with what they know
Build on what they have
But of the best leaders
When their task is accomplished
Their work is done
The people will remark:
"We have done it ourselves."
~ 2000 Year Old Chinese Poem
The very essence of leadership is that you have to have vision. You can't blow an uncertain trumpet.
~ Theodore M. Hesburgh
A quote to inspire the leadership of your business today ...
Nothing in this world can
take the place of persistence.
Talent will not; nothing is more common
than unsuccessful people with talent.
Genius will not; unrewarded genius
is almost a proverb.
Education will not;
the world is full of educated derelicts.
Persistence and determination
alone are omnipotent.
~ Calvin Coolidge (1872 - 1933)
