Warren Bennis on Leadership


  1. Managers are people who do things right, while leaders are people who do the right thing
  2. Becoming a leader is synonymous with becoming yourself. It is precisely that simple, and it is also that difficult.
  3. Our quality of life depends on the quality of our leaders
  4. The point is to become yourself, to use yourself completely – all your skills, gifts, and energies–in order to make your vision manifest
  5. No matter how collaborative our organizations someone still needs to choreograph the players
  6. The upheaval of the last few years has left us with no place to hide. We need anchors and guides
  7. The very best leaders serve….They inspire and restore our hope
  8. Good leaders engage the world. Bad leaders entrap it, or try
  9. Reagan proved that leadership is, to an extraordinary degree, a performance art
  10. True understanding derives from engagement and from full deployment of ourselves
