Secrets of Successful Leaders

Some quotes to inspire you:

  • Just because you are CEO, don’t think you have landed. You must continually increase your learning, the way you think, and the way you approach the organization. – Indra Nooyi, CEO PepsiCo
     
  • Our emerging workforce is not interested in command-and-control leadership. They don’t want to do things because I said so; they want to do things because they want to do them.  – Irene Rosenfeld, CEO Mondelez
     
  • The best executive is the one who has sense enough to pick good men to do what he wants done, and self-restraint enough to keep from meddling with them while they do it. – Theodore Roosevelt, President
  • One of the most important things for any leader is to never let anyone else define who you are. And you define who you are. I never think of myself as being a woman CEO of this company. I think of myself as a steward of a great institution. – Ginni Rometty, CEO, IBM
     
  • The quality of a leader is reflected in the standards they set for themselves. – Ray Kroc, American fast-food tycoon
     
  • I cannot give you the formula for success, but I can give you the formula for failure, which is: Try to please everybody. – Herbert Swope, Writer
     
  • Control is not leadership; management is not leadership; leadership is leadership. If you seek to lead, invest at least 50 percent of your time in leading yourself–your own purpose, ethics, principles, motivation, conduct. Invest at least 20 percent leading those with authority over you and 15 percent leading your peers. – Dee Hock founder and CEO of the Visa credit card association
     
  • You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing you think you cannot do. – Eleanor Roosevelt, First Lady, Val-Kill Industries, furniture factory, co-owner
     
  • Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other. –John F. Kennedy, President
     
  • Strategic leaders must not get consumed by the operational and tactical side of their work. They have a duty to find time to shape the future.  – Stephanie S Mead, Senior VP, CMOE
     
  • Leadership is not magnetic personality, that can just as well be a glib tongue. It is not ‘making friends and influencing people,’ that is flattery. Leadership is lifting a person’s vision to higher sights, the raising of a person’s performance to a higher standard, the building of a personality beyond its normal limitations. – Peter F. Drucker, Author, Management Guru
     
  • I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. – Maya Angelou, Poet, Civil Rights Activist

  • As we look ahead into the next century, leaders will be those who empower others. –  Bill Gates, CEO Microsoft
