Leadership Quotations from Warren Bennis

*      Good leaders make people feel that they’re at the heart of things, not at the periphery. Everyone feels that he or she makes a difference to the success of the organization. When that happens, people feel centered, and that gives their work meaning. 

 *      No leader sets out to be a leader. People set out to lead their lives, expressing themselves fully. When that expression is of value, they become leaders.

  *      Managers are people who do things right, while leaders are people who do the right thing. 

*      The manager asks how and when; the leader asks what and why.  

*      The most dangerous leadership myth is that leaders are born — that there is a genetic factor to leadership. This myth asserts that people simply either have certain charismatic qualities or not. That’s nonsense; in fact, the opposite is true. Leaders are made rather than born.
