Mutual acceptance, support, goodwill and endeavour are the hallmarks of responsible leadership. Sharing and caring amongst all the interacting groups ensures continued overall well being. Sharing not only the fruits of success but also the credit for success lifts any success to the level of divine success.
Leaders of society should have the moral strength to proclaim truth fearlessly.
Rig Veda (8.48.14)
He who has never learned to obey can never be a good commander.
The final test of a leader is that he leaves behind him in other men the conviction and the will to carry on.
I see it is said that leaders should keep their ears to the ground. All I can say is that the British nation will find it very hard to look up to the leaders who are detected in that somewhat ungainly posture.
A chief is a man who takes responsibility. He says, “I was beaten.” He does not say, “My men were beaten.” Thus speaks a real man.
Management is efficiency in climbing the ladder of success; leadership determines whether the ladder is leaning against the right wall.
Stephen .R. Covey
No man is great enough or wise enough for any of us to surrender our destiny to. The only way in which any one can lead us is to restore to us the belief in our guidance.
