My 12 Favourite Leadership Quotes

A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves.

Lao Tzu

There’s a moment where you have to choose whether to be silent or to stand up.

Malala Yousafzai

When we speak we are afraid our words will not be heard or welcomed. But when we are silent, we are still afraid.

So it is better to speak.

  1. Hi Mary-Anne
    I can’t decide between these three James Kouze, Kao Tzu, Nelson Mandela, if I was honest I would choose them all. Maybe this says more about me in terms of my understanding of leadership and how I lead or try to. Leadership is just not one thing it is many things. That is why it is such a hard thing, being a leader. That ability to be selfless, to not be bothered about one’s ego or self-importance, and to redefine notions of power, authority and influence are concepts that I have to think about and reflect upon all the time.
