A Quote by Liz Murray on employees, respect, fear, confident, incompetent, leadership, and leader

When you go back to your environment and you deal with employees... do you inspire people or do you make them feel fear?  Do you make them feel confident or incompetent?  I think that distinction really marks the leader.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on intellect, intellectual, god, personality, lead, leadership, serve, and service

We should take care not to make intellect our god.  It has, of course, powerful muscles, but no personality.  It cannot lead, it can only serve.

Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)

A Quote by Andrea Jung on leadership, passion, flexibility, success, and change

I think there is a big and significant difference between being a leader and being a manager-leaders lead from the heart. You have to be analytical and flexible. Flexibility is one of the key ingredients to being successful. If you feel like it's difficult to change, you will probably have a harder time succeeding.

A Quote by Jim Collins on teamwork, ceo, and leadership

There is a direct relationship between the absence of celebrity and the presence of good-to-great results. Why? First, when you have a celebrity, the company turns into "the one genius with 1,000 helpers." It creates a sense that the whole thing is really about the CEO. At a deeper level, we found that for leaders to make something great, their ambition has to be for the greatness of the work and the company, rather than for themselves. That doesn't mean that they don't have an ego. It means that at each decision point -- at each of the critical junctures when Choice A would favor their ego and Choice B would favor the company and the work -- time and again the good-to-great leaders pick Choice B. Celebrity CEOs, at those same decision points, are more likely to favor self and ego over company and work.

A Quote by Jim Collins on business, people, team, and leadership

If I were running a company today, I would have one priority above all others: to acquire as many of the best people as I could. I'd put off everything else to fill my bus. Because things are going to come back. My flywheel is going to start to turn. And the single biggest constraint on the success of my organization is the ability to get and to hang on to enough of the right people.

A Quote by Larry Brilliant on people manager, leadership, skills, and business

If there's a big problem and you've got the right people with you, usually the answer emerges and you do what's the obvious thing to do. I don't think of myself as some great manager or great leader. I've been very lucky to be in the positions that I've been in. I meet a lot of people and I've grown a lot of companies, and I meet a lot of CEOs at big enterprises. I'm always so surprised at how much they seem to know. It doesn't always seem to be correlated to how well they actually do. My experience is that people who are modest and who appreciate the value and the contributions of others do a lot better than those who are constantly reaffirming what they think are their own skill sets.

A Quote by Tex Gunning on leadership, leaders, and business

Average leaders take care of themselves and their families. Good leaders take care of themselves, their families, and some of the community. Great leaders—and great companies—not only take care of these stakeholders but also want to change the world. They want to leave the world better than they found it.
