Leadership is an important quality for any business, whether you use it in your own business or motivate a team to follow you. Follow this lot and see how you fare;

“All of the great leaders have had one characteristic in common: it was the willingness to confront unequivocally the major anxiety of their people in their time. This, and not much else, is the essence of leadership.”–John Kenneth Galbraith

 “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 high sights, the raising of a person’s performance to a higher standard, the building of a personality beyond its normal limitations.”–Peter F. Drucker

“The task of leadership is not to put greatness into people, but to elicit it, for the greatness is there already.”–John Buchan
