10 Reasons To Become a Good Leader – Teen Blurb

There are rewards of leadership, but there is still a price of leadership. And that’s a steep price. There is suffering, sacrifice, sadness, sweat, hard work, resources, challenges and financial obligation when it comes to becoming a leader in your field. But what all good leaders know is that the price is more than worth it.

Here are 10 reasons to become a good leader:

#1. “Becoming a leader is synonymous with becoming yourself. It is precisely that simple and it is also that difficult.” – Warren Bennis

#2. “Today a reader, tomorrow a leader.” – Margaret Fuller

#3. “Leadership is a potent combination of strategy and character. But if you must be without one, be without the strategy.” – Norman Schwarzkopf

#4. “You cannot be a leader, and ask other people to follow you, unless you know how to follow, too.” – Sam Rayburn

#5. “The distance between number one and number two is always a constant. If you want to improve the organisation, you have to improve yourself and the organisation gets pulled up with you. That is a big lesson.” – Indra Nooyi

#6. “Great leaders are not defined by the absence of weakness, but rather by the presence of clear strengths.” – John Zenger

#7. “Average leaders raise the bar on themselves; good leaders raise the bar for others; great leaders inspire to raise their own bar.” – Orrin Woodward

#8. “Effective leadership is not about making speeches or being liked; leadership is defined by results not attributes.” – Peter F. Drucker

#9. “The quality of a leader is reflected in the standards they set for themselves.” – Ray Kroc

#10. “A man must be big enough to admit his mistakes, smart enough to profit from them, and strong enough to correct them.” – John C. Maxwell
