Le leadership est un appel à servir la population ou des groupes de personnes et pas du tout un appel à la population ou des groupes de personnes pour vous servir. Deuxièmement, le leadership est un appel à enrichir la vie de la population ou des groupes de personnes via vos politiques, programmes et projets. Il ne est jamais un appel pour enrichir votre propre auto. En conclusion, le leadership est un privilège d'avoir un impact positif sur la vie de la population ou des groupes de personnes. Ce est ainsi l'occasion de quitter repères pour la postérité, qui aussi vous survivront et de parler pour vous, des années après votre décès. Maintenant, ce est juste une réflexion pour dirigeants actuels et leaders potentiels.

Leadership is a call to serve the populace/groups of people and not at all a call for the populace/groups of people to serve you. Secondly, leadership is a call to enrich the lives of the populace/groups of people via your policies, programs & projects. It is never a call to enrich your own self. Conclusively, leadership is a privilege to positively impact the lives of the populace/groups of people. It is as well an opportunity to leave landmarks for posterity, that will equally outlive you/speak for you, years after your demise. Now, that is just a food for thought for present leaders/potential leaders.

Emeasoba George

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 higher sights, the raising of a person's performance to a higher standard, the building of a personality beyond its normal limitations.

Peter Drucker

Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things.
