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 three of “leadership gold” quotes from John Maxwell:
A leader who develops people, does addition. A leader who develops other leaders, creates multiplication.
Dreams don’t work unless you do.
Success each day should be judged by the seeds sown, not the harvest reaped.
People’s capacity to achieve is determined by their leaders ability to empower.
There are no shortcuts to any place worth going.
Ideas have a short shelf life. You must act on them before the expiration date.
The growth and development of people is the highest calling of a leader.
Your thinking, more than anything else, shapes the way you live. It’s really true that if you change your thinking, you can change your life.
You must reject common thinking if you want to accomplish uncommon results.
One of the reasons people don’t achieve their goals is they desire to change their results without changing their thinking.
The effectiveness of your work will never rise above your ability to lead and influence others.
The reason most major goals are not achieved is that we spend our time doing second things first.
