The Art of Leadership

You can't tell a real dancer from the dance.

Similarly, you can't tell a real leader from his quest for positive change.

Chinese proverb

Not the cry but the flight of the wild duck leads the flock to fly and to follow.

Chinese proverb


Train your soldiers well, and give them a pattern yourself.

Alexander Suvorov



Model the Way

As a leader, you must establish principles concerning the way people (constituents, peers, colleagues, and customers alike) should be treated and the way goals should be pursued. You must create standards of excellence and then set an example for others to follow.


The Science of Winning


Collin Powell's 18 Lessons for Leaders




Because the prospect of complex change can overwhelm people and stifle action, you must set interim goals and provide direction so that people can achieve small wins as they work toward larger objectives.

You must inspire people, create opportunities for victories, and unravel bureaucracy when it blocks the way to your strategic goal.

Vadim Kotelnikov advice quotes

Leadership by example is the most contagious way of leadership. That's why there's so much corruption in the country.

Vadim Kotelnikov

Continuous Learning and Self-Development

Leadership isn't confined to the boardroom. Good leaders know their strengths and limitations, draw on others to face complex problems and are continually learning and developing themselves.

"I have always thought the actions of men the best interpreters of their thoughts."  ~ John Locke

Transformational Leadership

The transformational leader encourages followers by acting as a role model, motivating through inspiration and  stimulating intellectually. Transformational leaders are always visible and lead from in front.

They show by their attitude and actions how everyone else should behave.

They give their followers the courage to pursue the quest. They build trust and strengthen relationships.

They stay firm against and overcome resistance to change.

Creating a Culture for Innovation

Leadership behavior is arguably the single most important factor in driving corporate culture.

Leadership is certainly a shared responsibility – not simply the role of a single senior executive. While Apple’s Steve Jobs is an example of a visionary, innovative individual who possesses inherent traits that inspire, motivate and create new value on an ongoing basis, it would be a poor strategy to pin an organization’s hopes of success on having such a person at the helm.

To succeed in the long term companies must foster the right kinds of innovation-focused skills with leaders who operate at various levels in the organization.



Confucius advice

To govern is to be correct. If you set an example by being correct, who would dare remain incorrect?



Mahatma Gandhi advice quotes

We must become the change we wish to see in the world.

Xenophon leadrship teachings

Leadership is done from in front. Never ask others to do what you, if challenged, would not be willing to do yourself.



Genghis Khan advice

When it was wet, we bore the wet together, when it was cold, we bore the cold together.



Peter Drucker management quotes

A leader sets an example. He or she is someone on whom people – especially younger people – model themselves.



Donald Trump quotes

Be an example. Children watch – and they will emulate what they see.

One characteristic of winners is they always look upon themselves as a do it yourself project.
