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 four of “leadership gold” quotes from John Maxwell:
Efficiency is the foundation for survival. Effectiveness is the foundation of success.
Image promises much but produces little. Integrity never disappoints.
First we form habits, but then our habits form us.
Efficiency is the foundation for survival. Effectiveness is the foundation for success. It’s not how hard you work; it’s how smart you work.
I may not be able to change the world I see around me, but I can change what I see within me.
The more you do, the more you fail. The more you fail, the more you learn. The more you learn, the better you get.
Successful people have learned to do what does not come naturally. Nothing worth achieving comes easily. The only way forward is to cultivate tenacity and persistence.
A sign of a great team leader is the proper placement of people.
If you build the right team, the dream will nearly take care of itself.
You can’t take the team to the next level when you haven’t mastered the skills it takes to succeed on a personal level.
It’s better to have a great team with a weak dream than a great dream with a weak team. Your team must be the size of your dream.
