John Maxwell is one of the foremost experts in leadership development. Before becoming a well known leadership author and speaker, he served as a pastor. His insights are helpful for those in leadership inside or outside the church.
Here is part one of “leadership gold” quotes from John Maxwell:
The greatest day in your life and mine is when we take total responsibility for our attitudes. That’s the day we truly grow up.
Leaders must be close enough to relate to others, but far enough ahead to motivate them.
A man must be big enough to admit his mistakes, and strong enough to correct them.
A leader who produces other leaders multiples their influence.
Relational skills are the most important abilities in leadership.
We feel unhappy and confused with our life when we don’t focus on the calling that God has on our life.
You will never change your life until you change something you do daily.
You must manage your thought life daily and then you can manage your life.
People buy into the leader before they buy into the vision.
