Leadership quotes can even define your personal leadership style for yourself and others. A meaningful leadership quote clarifies your purpose and direction, whether within a professional organization, a family, or your community.


Everyone has influence, no matter what your personality type or career, no matter whether you are rich or poor, married or single, young or old. The question is nto whether or not you have influence, but what you will do with the influence you have.

Leadership means getting people to think, believe, see and do what they might not have without you. It means possessing the vision to set the right goal. It means being aware of the fears and anxieties felt by those you lead even as you urge them to overcome those fears.
