Taking people to the top is what good leaders do. Leadership is an open mind and an open heart...

o Leadership is all about placing people in the right place so they can be successful.

o As a leader, you should always challenge people to move out of their comfort zone, but never out of their strength zone.

o If you want to lead, you must learn. If you want to continue to lead, you must continue to learn.

o Discover your uniqueness, and then discipline yourself to develop it.

o Leadership finds its source in understanding.

o The choices we make in critical moments help to form us and to inform others about who we are.

o Taking people to the top is what good leaders do. Leadership is an open mind and an open heart.

o Leadership is relational as much as it is positional. An individual who takes a relational approach to leadership will never be lonely. Leadership is above all courageous.

o Following your passion is the key to finding your potential.

o Listen to whispers and you wonʼt have to hear the screams.

o All leaders have two common characteristics. First, they are going somewhere; second, they are able to persuade other people to go with them.

o The person interested in success has to learn to view failure as a healthy, inevitable part of the process of getting the top.

o Itʼs wonderful when the people believe in their leader. Itʼs more wonderful when their leader believes in people.

o Experiences teach nothing, but evaluated experience teaches everything.

o In prosperity prepare for a change; in adversity hope for one.

o The real work is putting excitement into your work.

o Positional people desire to climb the ladder; relational people are more focused on building bridges. Troubles are often the tools.
