Although he only attended grammar school to the 8th grade, his interests motivated him to move on to greater things. In 1904, as a self-taught engineer, he began to manufacture engines for airships. During this time, Curtiss became known for having won a number of international air races and for making the first long-distance flight in the United States. On September 30, 1907, Curtiss was invited to join a non-profit pioneering research program named the "Aerial Experimental Association," founded under the leadership of Dr. Alexander Graham Bell, to develop flying machines. The organization was established having a fixed time period, which ended in March of 1909. During this time, the members produced several different aircraft in a cooperative, rather than a competitive, spirit. #Quote by Hank Bracker

Leadership quotes by Azim Premji
#66. I was 21 and had spent the last few years in Stanford University Engineering School at California. Many people advised me to take up a nice, cushy job rather than face the challenges of running a hydrogenated oil business. Looking back, I am glad I decided to take charge instead. Essentially leadership begins from within. It is a small voice that tells you where to go when you feel lost. If you believe in that voice, you believe in yourself. #Quote by Azim Premji

against those who lag behind and those who rush ahead. #Quote by Joseph Stalin

Leadership quotes by Ellen Johnson Sirleaf
#76. Why are some countries able, despite their very real and serious problems, to press ahead along the road to reconciliation, recovery, and redevelopment while others cannot? These are critical questions for Africa, and their answers are complex and not always clear. Leadership is crucial, of course. Kagame was a strong leader–decisive, focused, disciplined, and honest–and he remains so today. I believe that sometimes people's characters are molded by their environment. Angola, like Liberia, like Sierra Leone, is resource-rich, a natural blessing that sometimes has the sad effect of diminishing the human drive for self-sufficiency, the ability and determination to maximize that which one has. Kagame had nothing. He grew up in a refugee camp, equipped with only his own strength of will and determination to create a better life for himself and his countrymen. #Quote by Ellen Johnson Sirleaf
Leadership quotes by Dalai Lama
#77. I believe that the time has come for women to take more active roles in all domains of human society, in an age in which education and the capacities of the mind, not physical strength, define leadership. This could help create a more equitable and compassionate society. #Quote by Dalai Lama

#79. True leadership is the orchestration of truth into action to shine Light into darkness. #Quote by Orrin Woodward
Leadership quotes by Ian Fuhr
#80. If you do not treat people with the respect they deserve, do not expect any kind of commitment to your productivity goals and target. #Quote by Ian Fuhr
Leadership quotes by Janna Cachola
#81. Highly engaged teams have highly engaged leaders. Leaders must be about presence not productivity. Make meetings a no phone zone. #Quote by Janna Cachola
Leadership quotes by Donavan Nelson Butler
#82. The greatest risk most of us will take in our lifetime is that of repression or denial of basic rights of another person. The great risk is that you have no idea what will happen if that person you think so small or insignificant of stands up and totally eclipses the Sun in the universe of those lacking in empathy, humility, and humbleness. #Quote by Donavan Nelson Butler
Leadership quotes by Carrie Underwood
#83. It's hard to look at things that are too close. #Quote by Carrie Underwood
Leadership quotes by Cornelius Nepos

Leadership quotes by Jeffrey R. Immelt
#85. The best thing you can give as a leader is a reason to trust. People want to trust. They're hungry for it. But they're selective. They'll only give it to a motivator, a communicator, a teacher, a real person. Someone who in good times and bad always does the right thing. #Quote by Jeffrey R. Immelt
Leadership quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon

#100. When I quit my university, people in my neighborhood quite literally began to gossip about me being insane, while others pitied me as a lost soul.

Leadership quotes by Sandra Brown
#132. He made a costly error in judgement and sent an entire regiment into a virtual slaughterhouse. It happens frequently. Officers risk their troops' lives for the sake of a promotion. Not my father. He valued the life of every man under his command, from his officers to the humblest fresh recruit. When he realized what had happened, he was devastated. He couldn't ever forget that his error had cost the lives of so many men, created so many widows and orphans..."
"But, Lyon, measured against his valor, one mistake is forgivable."
"To us, yes. Not to him. He was sickened that the battle was hailed as one of the turning points of the war. He was decorated for it. It was considered a great victory, but it defeated him as a soldier, as a man. When he came home and was hailed a hero, he couldn't stand the conflict within himself. He didn't feel like a hero. He felt like a traitor."
"That can't be!"
"Not a traitor to his country, but to the men who had trusted his judgement and leadership. It was a conflict he never could reconcile, so he retired from the Army and came here and shut out the world and all reminders of the lie he was living."
They were quiet for a moment before she said,"No one would have thrown stones at him, Lyon. he was a respected man, a hero, a leader at a time in history when America needed heroes and leaders. It was a battleground that spread out for miles. Admist all the chaos he may have thought he made a mistake when he actually didn't. #Quote by Sandra Brown

Leadership quotes by M. Scott Peck
#135. Yet the opposite style of leadership, which the guilt-ridden neurotic so often exerts over his feelings, is equally self-destructive. In this style the slave-owner is so obsessed with the fear that his slaves (feelings) might get out of control and so determined that they should cause him no trouble that he routinely beats them into submission and punishes them severely at the #Quote by M.

Leadership quotes by George Friedman
#147. While you and I are allowed the luxury of our pain, president isn't. A president must take into account how his citizens feel and he must manage them and lead them, but he must not succumb to personal feelings. His job is to maintain a ruthless sense of proportion while keeping the coldness of his calculation to himself. #Quote by George Friedman
Leadership quotes by Clayton Christensen
#148. Because these firms listened to their customers, invested aggressively in new technologies that would provide their customers more and better products of the sort they wanted, and because they carefully studied market trends and systematically allocated investment capital to innovations that promised the best returns, they lost their positions of leadership. #Quote by Clayton Christensen

#157. Some say," Scytale said, "that people cling to Imperial leadership because space is infinite. They feel lonely without a unifying symbol. For a lonely people, the Emperor is a definite place. They can turn toward him and say: 'See, there He is. He makes us one.' Perhaps religion serves the same purpose, m'Lord. #Quote by Frank Herbert

Leadership quotes by Robert M. Gates
#160. Self-discipline is central to the leadership of institutions and to reforming them. A favorite saying of mine is "Never miss a good chance to shut up." I won't tell you how many times in a congressional hearing I just wanted to scream. How often in the White House Situation Room I wanted to say, "That's the dumbest idea I ever heard." How often in a briefing at the CIA or the Pentagon I wanted to tell someone where to stick his PowerPoint slides. Senior leaders want to blow off steam-shout at people- all the time. But to be an effective leader, you have to suppress those urges. #Quote by Robert M. Gates
Leadership quotes by Robert S. Strauss
#161. What's going to happen is that county council and the county executive will be able to blame the judge. I think that's what's going to happen
they want to blame the judge for reassessment. That's not leadership, that's hiding. #Quote by Robert S. Strauss
Leadership quotes by Oghenovo Obrimah
#162. There is a time for everything. There is a time for a leader to allow those over whom he has authority to demonstrate what they are about and their capabilities. There also is a time for a leader to utilize knowledge garnered while silent to bring about stability in interpersonal relationships within the context of the achievement of organizational goals or institutional objectives. #Quote by Oghenovo Obrimah
Leadership quotes by Scott McNealy
#163. Get the best people and train them well. #Quote by Scott McNealy
Leadership quotes by Jocelynne Scutt
#164. If women don't lead, nobody else is going to, because nobody else feels as passionately as we do about injustices. We feel passionate about injustices to women and girls, and not in exclusion to injustices elsewhere. #Quote by Jocelynne Scutt
Leadership quotes by J. Oswald Sanders

Leadership quotes by Bill Thrall
#166. Character – the inner world of motives and values that shapes our actions – is the ultimate determiner of the nature of our leadership. It empowers our capacities while keeping them in check. It distinguishes those who steward power well from those who abuse power. Character weaves such values as integrity, honesty, and selfless service into the fabric of our lives, organizations, and cultures. #Quote by Bill Thrall
Leadership quotes by Patrick Lencioni
#167. As important as it is for all members of a leadership team to commit to being vulnerable, that is not going to happen if the leader of the team, whether that person is the CEO, department head, pastor, or school principal, does not go first. If the team leader is reluctant to acknowledge his or her mistakes or fails to admit to a weakness that is evident to everyone else, there is little hope that other members of the team are going to take that step themselves. In fact, it probably wouldn't be advisable for them to do so because there is a good chance that their vulnerability would be neither encouraged nor rewarded. #Quote by Patrick Lencioni
Leadership quotes by Chris   Hutchinson
#168. Leaders who listen, look for, and uncover other's strengths create capacity and commitment. #Quote by Chris Hutchinson
Leadership quotes by Nancy Pearcey

Leadership quotes by Adolf Von Schell
#172. We know that psychology is tremendously important in war. It is a field unlimited in extent, to which every conscientious soldier should give much time and study. Yet it cannot be learned as one learns mathematics. It must be sensed. Unfortunately we cannot formulate a set of psychological rules; human reactions can never be reduced to an exact science. War is governed by the uncertain and the unknown and the least known factor of all is the human element. #Quote by Adolf Von Schell
Leadership quotes by Laozi
#173. The sage does not attempt anything very big, and thus achieves greatness. #Quote by Laozi
Leadership quotes by Nicholas D. Kristof

Leadership quotes by J. Loren Norris
#177. So, what does it take to live a more excellent life? It takes a new way of thinking, speaking and acting. It takes a change in habits, and a better understanding of who you are and what you do each day. It takes a foolproof formula you can apply to every minute of your day, for the most excellent outcome every time. #Quote by J. Loren Norris
Leadership quotes by Susan Faludi

Leadership quotes by Kirsten Beyer

Leadership quotes by Michael J. Sullivan
#183. If given a choice between a potentially great hardship and doing nothing, people gravitate toward what was most familiar and comfortable. That was why leadership was needed. To do what was necessary rather than what was easy. #Quote by Michael J. Sullivan
Leadership quotes by Spencer Fraseur
#184. Some choices are better than others and we, as mortal humans, cannot be expected to always choose the best ones. What we can control is how we evaluate past decisions. Our readiness to reflect and realize that we were wrong. Our ability to admit our wrongs and move forward. To say we are sorry or make amends for mistakes. To apply what we've learned from past follies and choose wiser in the present. I contend that in a random and often chaotic world of choices, that is what we can control. #Quote by Spencer Fraseur
Leadership quotes by Neville Bonner
#185. As they were leading me up, I looked up and around the galleries and I could feel the whole Aboriginal race, of those who had gone before, were all up there, and I could visualise, I could hear voices and amongst those voices was the voice of my grandfather saying, 'It's alright now boy, you are finally in the council with the Australian Elders. Everything is now going to be alright.' #Quote by Neville Bonner
Leadership quotes by Damaris Patterson Price
#186. Management or not, no matter what the next-level role is or what your organization calls it, it is a step into a higher degree of leadership. That's the first lesson. To be promotable, you must be seen as a leader. Period. Full stop. #Quote by Damaris Patterson Price
Leadership quotes by Wayde Goodall
#187. Your greatest area of leadership often comes out of your greatest area of pain and weakness. #Quote by Wayde Goodall
Leadership quotes by Adrian Wooldridge
#188. Peter Drucker once noted that "no institution can possibly survive if it needs geniuses or supermen to manage it. It must be organized in such a way as to be able to get along under the leadership of perfectly normal human beings." Warren Buffet made the same point more pithily: "I only invest in companies which any fool can run, because some day some fool will run it. #Quote by Adrian Wooldridge

Leadership quotes by John C. Maxwell
#193. People who are not leaders automatically gravitate toward lines
limitations set by others. Many people are taught this in kindergarten when they are instructed to stay within the lines while coloring. But leaders are more creative than that. They look for options and opportunities. They try to take things in a new direction, or beyond the limit. Progress and innovation are made by people who think without lines. #Quote by John C. Maxwell
Leadership quotes by Abhijit Naskar

Leadership quotes by Chip Heath
