Short Course in Leadership

PhD in Leadership:   “Make a list of all things done to you that you abhorred.   Don’t do them to others, ever.

Make another list of things done for you that you loved.   Do them for others, always.”    (Dee Hock)


“It’s not what you say, it’s what you do!   Actions DO speak louder than words.   When faced with inconsistencies between words and actions, people tend to give greater credence to actions.   It’s behavior that counts!   The implication of this for managers is:   You’re a role model.   Employees will imitate your behavior and attitudes.”    (Stephen P. Robbins, The Truth about Managing People)


“Three things I’d say to a team to help hold them together:

  • If anything goes bad, I did it.
  • If anything goes semi-good, then we did it.
  • If anything goes real good, then you did it.”      (Paul “Bear” Bryant)
