leadership

A Quote by Peter F. Drucker on leaders, leadership, and success

Successful leaders don't start out asking, "What do I want to do?" They ask, "What needs to be done?" Then they ask, "Of those things that would make a difference, which are right for me?" They don't tackle things they aren't good at. They make sure other necessities get done, but not by them. Successful leaders make sure that they succeed! They are not afraid of strength in others. Andrew Carnegie wanted to put on his gravestone, "Here lies a man who knew how to put into his service more able men than he was himself."

Peter F. Drucker (1909 - 2005)

A Quote by Stephen R. Covey on leadership and principles

I believe the most important attribute for a leader is being principle-centered. Centering on principles that are universal and timeless provides a foundation and compass to guide every decision and every act. I’ve based my life’s work on promoting principles and teaching the power that resides in principle-centered leadership. Principles are not my invention; they are self-evident and are found throughout the world. If you look at all enduring philosophies, religions and thoughts, you will find principles such as integrity, compassion, trust, honesty, accountability and others at their core. I simply translated these principles into a framework of habits, which when followed with consistency and frequency transforms one’s character and allows one to earn the moral authority necessary for enduring leadership.

Stephen Covey (1932 -)

A Quote by Pete Middleton on leadership and choice

Some leaders are born, others learn to be leaders, but in truth leadership is simply a choice; a choice to acknowledge, honour and respect who you are.

A Quote by Pete Middleton on personal development, leadership, self, wisdom, and happiness

There is a way of knowing higher than reason, a self greater than ego, and a power called logic.

Acknowledge your mind, respect your heart, trust your knowing.

Do not allow any one to dominate the others!

A Quote by Timothy H. Warneka on integral leadership, integral, leadership, tao, tao te ching, lao tzu, and flatland

 

FIFTEEN


Leaders of tomorrow-if they are to be at all-will be subtle, embodied & responsive.

Their leadership knowledge beyond measure.

Because it is beyond measure, all we can do

Is describe their behavior.

Connected in relationship to all things

Yet standing alone.

Exploring the depths of the outer

While plumbing the space of the inner

Until outer and inner become one.

Far beyond flatland.

ONE


Leadership that can be fully explained is never True Leadership.

An element of mystery must remain.

Methods of Leading People that can be completely understood

are not the eternal Way of Leading People.

"Wordless" is the beginning & end of True Leadership.

Leadership begins with words.

The door to endless mystery.
