“Set the Tone Every Day” / “If Not You, Who?”
“To lead the people, walk beside them.” (Lao Tzu)
“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)
“Really believe in your heart of hearts that your fundamental purpose, the reason for being, is to enlarge the lives of others. Your life will be enlarged also. And all of the other things we have been taught to concentrate on will take care of themselves.” (Pete Thigpen, Executive Reserves)
“Every single person you meet has a ‘sign’ around his or her neck that says, ‘Make me feel important.’ If you can do that, you’ll be a success, not only in business but in life as well.” (Mary Kay Ash)
“Perhaps the ten most important two-letter words ever put together: ‘If it is to be, it is up to me.’” (Unknown Author)
“If not you, who?
If not now, when?” (Abraham Maslow)
