“Before you can lead others, before you can help others, you have to discover yourself.   Today a leader can’t impose himself on others.   He makes himself available to others.   And nothing is more powerful than someone who knows who they are.   The traditional view of leadership talks about leadership as a package, but it looks at the outside of the package.   I’m talking about starting with what’s inside the package.”     (Joe Jaworski, Author, “Synchronicity”)

“Set the tone every day.   You may think you can’t change the corporate culture, but you’re actually helping to build it with everything you do and every word you utter.   Your people look to you as a model.   So pay attention to the signals you send about what you value and believe in.”     (Lost & Found, the story of how one man discovered the secrets of leadership, Lyle Sussman, Ph.D., Sam Deep, & Alex Stiber)

“To lead the people, walk beside them.”     (Lao Tzu)
