What is Leadership?

Leadership is the process of influencing people and providing an environment for them to achieve team or organizational objectives. Perhaps you’d use phrases like “having integrity,” “inspiring people,” “leading from the front,” and a whole range of other phrases besides. Good leadership involves many different attributes, but there are common factors that link many of them.

 


  • “Leadership is getting players to believe in you. If you tell a teammate 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.” – Larry Bird, Basketball player
  • Peter Drucker :”The only definition of a leader is someone who has followers.”
  • John C Maxwell :”leadership is influence -nothing more, nothing less.”
  • Warren Bennis:”Leadership is a function of knowing yourself, having a vision that is well communicated, building trust among colleagues, and taking effective action to realize your own leadership potential.”
  • John W. Gardner: Leadership is the process of persuasion and example by which an individual (or leadership team) induces a group to take action that is in accord with the leader’s purpose, or the shared purposes of all.”
  • Leadership is the Art of accomplishing more, than the Science of Management says is possible!” Colin Powell
  • “Leadership is doing What’s Right, at the Right Time, for the Right Reason!” U.S. Army Green Berets
  • “The real leader has no need to lead — he is content to point the way. ” Miller, Henry
  • “Management is doing things right, leadership is doing the right things” (Warren Bennis and Peter Drucker)
