Here are a couple of statements which caught my eye:
- It doesn't matter who you are or what you do. You don't need to have a position to be a leader.
- Practicing leadership is a mix of science and art. Because leading others is, at the heart of things, about relationships and people, I need to be flexible and make adjustments.
- If we try to hide or ignore our imperfections and past mistakes, we may miss out on the opportunity to allow these things to be used for good in someone else's life.
- When looking at our team, we need to see the possibilities and potential of what we can accomplish together (rather than the negatives or differences in others).
- A leader's role is to introduce others to new worlds, expanding their experiences and providing the tools they need to develop their capacity.
- To be truly effective, leaders provide opportunities that challenge people beyond their current capacity. Challenges help people stretch and grow while giving them confidence.
- The key to have great impact is to invest time in relationships.
- Make small things big: stopping, looking, maintaining eye contact, smiling, affirming, recognizing, listening, sharing, thanking, remembering, inviting, including. They might seem small, but when you add them up, they can have a big impact on your relationship with others.
- Valuing and engaging others makes you famous where it matters.
- A legacy is formed when people continue the actions or traditions that they value most.
