I’m taking a short break from my weekly leadership posts. Here are some leadership quotes that encourage me. Enjoy!
“A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.” ~ John C. Maxwell
“Leadership is the power of one harnessing the power of many.” ~ John C. Maxwell
“Every system is perfectly designed to achieve the results it gets.” ~W. Edward Deming
“What’s really important to being our best is concentration and focus on something that is meaningful to us.” ~ Kouzes and Posner
“Patience and persistence have a magical affect before which difficulties and obstacles vanish.” ~ John Quincy Adams
“They say that when people are dying they look back on life and wish for certain things they had done differently. for example, rarely does anyone say, “I wish I had spent more time at the office. But…” and here come statements about desired and omitted values of life, etc. If we have lived a life that exudes character that others want to emulate we can say, “That was worth it!”
And if we have faithfully demonstrated a Bible centered ministry we will leave behind in the lives of people values and ideas that will live on. We can look at peoples lives that have changed and we will say, “That was worth it!” We will probably look back and see things we could have done better or things we should not have done. But on the whole if character and a Bible centered ministry are there we will be satisfied. We will have experienced ministry that lasts.” Dr. Bobby Clinton
