Kim’s Favourite

“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” -Maya Angelou

Why Kim loves this one:

I believe it’s so important that in whatever leadership capacity you hold (whether at work, at home or within your community) it’s how you make the people who are following you feel.  They’ll never forget how you made them feel … both good and bad!

Mary’s Favourite

“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.” – John Quincy Adams

Why Mary loves this one:

Leadership is a huge word.  It has many layers, but for me, these words sum up what a true leader is quite simply; it’s what leading is all about at the core. 

Linda’s Favourite

“Leadership is about influence.  Nothing more, nothing less.” – John Maxwell

Why Linda loves this one:

If no one is willing to follow you, are you really a Leader?  As simple as this quote is, it gets to the heart of what Leadership is all about.

Kevin’s Favourite

“Leaders get the behaviors they exhibit and tolerate.” – Larry Bossidy and Ram Charan

This one hits home for me.  It forces you to be personally accountable and stop the blame game where everyone else is responsible for everything and anything that goes wrong.  As a Leader, it’s time to step up and own it.
