3 Donald H. McGannon Leadership is action, not position. Peter F. Drucker Leadership is not magnetic personalitythat 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. Lao Tzu To lead people, walk beside them... As for the best leaders, the people do not notice their existence. The next best, the people honor and praise. The next, the people fear; and the next, the people hate... When the best leader's work is done the people say, 'We did it ourselves!'

13 Leadership is learned. Its just pure myth that only a lucky few can ever understand the intricacies of leadership Leaders make a difference. If you are to become a better leader, you must first believe that leadership applies to you and that you can be a positive force in the world First lead yourself. Leadership development is self-development A leader with integrity has one self. A leader without integrity is putting on an act Humility: You cant do it alone. You are human and you need the help of others

14 Constituents look for leaders who demonstrate an enthusiastic and genuine belief in the capacity of others, who strengthen peoples will, who supply the means to achieve, and who expresses optimism for the future The best kept secret of a successful leader is love: staying in love with leading, with the people who do the work, and with the organization
