Really good quote, very true

a leader who knows the way ,goes the way and shows the way

Reminds me of the Futurama episode...which was probably based on this quote.
God Entity: When you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all.

always you have to think about the welfare of his followers

Nice quote .

Great quote. A really good lesson

a true leader is someone who give more priority to its members :) without taking any credit

A leader always lead by his efforts and work not by his presence

Such an inspiration to be honest this is as rightly said by Lao Tzu a leader is best when people barely know he exist's

True saying @davidp but in rare cases a successful and true follower will never say like that because he better knows the value of leader.

That's the Reality !!

Lao Tzu explained the scenario in the best way through his words this is still true !!

I agree with you, excellent quote.

Leader is someone who says let's do it together and who makes everything perfect by involving himself in the work wand encouraging and supporting other work.

That definitely is a true leader. When he seamlessly leads his brigade with no one even noticing. His influence is profound and he is broad in his conduct but no one feels as if they are subordinate to him.
Great quote @davidp! :)

its shadow leader haha, usually people want to see commander on horse whom to follow :)

Nice quote @davidp sir, i also like to add— Leroy Eimes quote here that “A leader is one who sees more than others see, who sees farther than others see, and who sees before others see".

It's rare that it happens that way though!

Great quote @davidp sir, i like to say that a leader is not an administrator who loves to run others, but someone who carries water for his people so that they can get on with their jobs.


Yeah indeed that's a leader mentality :)

“Lead from the back — and let others believe they are in front.”
