Leadership Quotes From US Presidents

In his book “The Right To Lead” John C. Maxwell writes that the key to becoming an effective leader is not to focus on making other people follow, but on making yourself the kind of person they want to follow. A leader must be someone others can trust to take them where they want to go. John Maxwell quotes “A leader knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.

Strong leaders always seek the truth, they are flexible and they have the desire to change and most of all they overcome obstacles they come across while they lead. They earn the Right To Lead.
