Influence, Service and the 100 Best Quotes on Leadership - Forbes

Influence, Service and the 100 Best Quotes on Leadership - Forbes | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

"A great quote can provide personal inspiration and can be used to educate others. The contributor shares his top 100 leadership quotes of all time."


Excerpted (some of my own favorites taken from Kevin's list):


You don’t need a title to be a leader. –Multiple Attributions  A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way. —John Maxwell  My own definition of leadership is this: The capacity and the will to rally men and women to a common purpose and the character which inspires confidence. —General Montgomery  Leadership is lifting a person’s vision to high sights, the raising of a person’s performance to a higher standard, the building of a personality beyond its normal limitations. —Peter Drucker  Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, concerned citizens can change world. Indeed it is the only thing that ever has. —Margaret Mead  The most dangerous leadership myth is that leaders are born-that there is a genetic factor to leadership. That’s nonsense; in fact, the opposite is true. Leaders are made rather than born. —Warren Bennis  To command is to serve, nothing more and nothing less. —Andre Malraux   He who has never learned to obey cannot be a good commander. —Aristotle


Deb:  It seems to be true, per another Scoop, that leadership, in a sense, doesn't really exist, from Peter Drucker's perspective.  It is about trust, respect, leader development opportunity, influence and community (relationship / networks / feedback.)   That's my perspective on the leadership-train-talk.

Inspirational Employee Engagement and Employee Appreciation Quotes

Inspirational Employee Engagement and Employee Appreciation Quotes | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

According to the Corporate Leadership Council, employees with lower engagement levels are four times more likely to leave their jobs than those who are highly engaged.


But the importance of employee engagement isn't just increased employee retention; it's also about higher productivity.  


One study by HR strategy firm Kenexa found that of 64 organizations studied, the organizations with highly engaged employees achieved twice the annual net income of organizations whose employees were less engaged.
