Leadership makes a difference

17 Aug

“It’s been said that only three things happen naturally in organizations: friction, confusion, and underperformance; everything else requires leadership.”

“The best leaders bring out more than three times the amount of talent, energy, and motivation from their people compared with their counterparts at the other end of the spectrum.”

“…how one’s leader behaves explains more than any other variable about why people feel engaged or not in their workplace.”

“…it is not about the leader’s personality; it is all about how that individual behaves as a leader.”

“There is no single mold or distinct personality profile for leadership. Leaders come in all types, shapes, sizes, and colors. There is not one look or style. You are unique, and you don’t have to be anyone else but who you are.”

Leadership quotes from Chapter 2: Leadership makes a difference, in Learning Leadership: The Five Fundamentals of Becoming an Exemplary Leader, by James M. Kouzes and Barry Z. Posner
