“Do Others Believe in You?


“If you wish others to believe in you, you must first convince them that you believe in them.”  (Harvey MacKay)



“Nothing is more important than creating an environment in which people feel they make a difference.  You can’t feel good about what you’re doing unless you think you’re making a difference.”   (Anonymous)



“What you do speaks so loud that I cannot hear what you say.”   (Ralph Waldo Emerson)



“The challenge of leadership is to be strong, but not rude; be kind, but not weak; be bold, but not bully; be thoughtful, but not lazy; be humble, but not timid; be proud, but not arrogant; have humor, but without folly.”   (Jim Rohn)



Manager or Leader?

People don’t want to be managed.

They want to be led.

Whoever heard of a world manager!  World leader, yes.

Educational leader.  Political leader.  Religious leader. 

Scout leader.  Community leader.

Business leader.

They lead.  They don’t manage.

The carrot always wins over the stick.  Ask your horse.

You can lead your horse to water, but you can’t manage him to drink.

If you want to manage somebody, manage yourself.

Do that well and you’ll be ready to stop managing.

And start LEADING!!”   (Ad in the “Wall Street Journal)



“Leadership is influence.”   (John Maxwell)
