“The challenge of leadership is to be strong, but not rude; be kind, but not weak; be bold, but not bully; be thoughtful, but not lazy; be humble, but not timid; be proud, but not arrogant; have humor, but without folly.”
— Jim Rohn

  1. This is better than the dictionary definition, it covers every aspect without leaving anything out whatsoever

  2. Love it. The true character of leadership.

  3. Nice points, but I think some of this is more on the side of management than leadership. The classic distinctions of leadership vs management I’ve been aware of are:
    Leadership is about doing the right things.
    Management is about doing things right.


  4. I agree with Tulisa and Aman – a very truthful quote describing the balancing act of leadership.
