I will post, on Fridays, selected leadership quotes. I’ll try to maintain a theme in a given week’s quotes, but if something in particular strikes me that week, it will probably go in anyway!

Positive influence…

The key to successful leadership today is influence, not authority.
~Ken Blanchard

A man who wants to lead the orchestra must turn his back on the crowd. ~James Crook

It’s hard to lead a cavalry charge if you think you look funny on a horse.”
~Adlai E. Stevenson II

People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily.
~Zig Ziglar

It is absurd that a man should rule others, who cannot rule himself. (Absurdum est ut alios regat, qui seipsum regere nescit.)
~Latin Proverb

And, a bonus quote this week:

Asked what his secret was for lasting so long and being so successful as the president of Yale University, Dr. James R. Angell explained: “Grow antennae, not horns.”
~Dr. James Rowland Angell


Take care, and enjoy life,

    Those are some great leadership quotes. My favorite is the one by James Crook about turning your back on the orchestra. It reminds me of one about not being able to soar like and eagle if spending too much time clucking with chickens.
