ภาวะผู้นำ คือ ผู้ที่มีคุณสมบัติทั้งห้าประการ คือ ฉลาด สัตย์ซื่อ มีมนุษยธรรม กล้าหาญ และมีวินัย

–ฉลาดเกินไปจะกลายเป็นขบถ

–มีน้ำใจมากไปจะกลายเป็นอ่อนแอ

–เชื่อคนมากไปจะกลายเป็นความเขลา

–เชื่อมั่นในกำลังมากไปจะกลายเป็นความรุนแรง

–เข้มงวดกฎระเบียบมากไปจะกลายเป็นความโหดร้าย

ผู้ที่มีคุณสมบัติทั้งห้าประการและใช้อย่างเหมาะสมจึงเป็นผู้นำที่แท้จริง

ประการที่ 1 ฉลาด (Intelligence)

  • 1.Many people have ideas on how others should change; few people have ideas on how they should change. (Leo Tolstoy)

  • 4.The ultimate leader is one who is willing to develop people to the point that they surpass him or her in knowledge and ability. (Fred A. Manske )
  • 5.A genuine leader is not a searcher for consensus but a molder of consensus. (Martin Luther King, Jr.)
  • 6.Do not go where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail. (Ralph Waldo Emerson)
  • 7.Forethought and prudence are the proper qualities of a leader. (Tacitus)
  • 8.A true leader always keeps an element of surprise up his sleeve, which others cannot grasp but which keeps his public excited and breathless. (Charles deGaulle)
  • 9.Those who know how to win are more numerous than those who know how to make proper use of their victories. (Polybius)
  • 10.If a man does not know to what port he is steering, no wind is favorable to him. (Seneca)
  • 11.I used to think that running an organization was equivalent to conducting a symphony orchestra. But I don't think that's quite it; it's more like jazz. There is more improvisation. (Warren Bennis)
  • 12.The first method for estimating the intelligence of a ruler is to look at the men he has around him. (Niccolo Machiavelli)
  • 13.The chief executive who knows his strengths and weaknesses as a leader is likely to be far more effective than the one who remains blind to them. He also is on the road to humility— that priceless attitude of openness to life that can help a manager absorb mistakes, failures, or personal shortcomings. (John Adair)
  • 14.Management is efficiency in climbing the ladder of success; leadership determines whether the ladder is leaning against the right wall. (Stephen R. Covey)

  • 28.I have yet to find the man, however exalted his station, who did not do better work and put forth greater effort under a spirit of approval than under a spirit of criticism. (Charles Schwab)
  • 29.Never hire or promote in your own image. It is foolish to replicate your strength and idiotic to replicate your weakness.

It is also rare, for it requires uncommon humility, tolerance, and wisdom. (Dee W. Hock)
  • 30.Help others get ahead. You will always stand taller with someone else on your shoulders. (Bob Moawad)
  • 31.The leaders who work most effectively, it seems to me, never say "I." And that's not because they have trained themselves not to say "I." They don't think "I." They think "we"; they think "team." They understand their job to be to make the team function. They accept responsibility and don't sidestep it, but "we" gets the credit . . . This is what creates trust, what enables you to get the task done. (Peter F. Drucker)
  • 32.It is important that an aim never be defined in terms of activity or methods. It must always relate directly to how life is better for everyone . . . The aim of the system must be clear to everyone in the system. The aim must include plans for the future. The aim is a value judgment. (W. Edwards Deming)

  • 42.Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle. (Plato)

  • 51.The boss drives his men; the leader coaches them. The boss depends upon authority; the leader on good will. The boss inspires fear; the leader inspires enthusiasm. The boss says "I"; the leader say "we." The boss fixes the blame for the breakdown; the leader fixes the breakdown. The boss says "go"; the leader says "let's go!" (Gordon Selfridge)
  • 52.The highest proof of virtue is to possess boundless power without abusing it. (Thomas Babington Macaulay)

  • 56.Leaders focus on the soft stuff. People. Values. Character. Commitment. A cause. All of the stuff that was supposed to be too goo-goo to count in business. Yet it's the stuff that real leaders take care of first. And forever. That's why leadership is an art, not a science. (Tom Peters)
