What Makes A Leader? 10 Quotations About Leadership


Do you ever wonder what leadership is really about?

Take a look at some of the greatest leaders of all time; Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr., Winston Churchill, Obama, Rachel Carson, just to name a few. Each one of these leaders (and every other leader out there) have one thing in common aside for the traditional leadership traits: the drive to make a difference.

Whether it’s coming up with a new strategy to boost sales, helping a co-worker overcome a barrier at work, finding new customers, these things all make differences for your workplace (and the differences you make only go up from there!).
