Paying it forward
I am looking to collect a series of leadership insights, either from a personal perspective or insights that were shared with you, maybe a leadership story, helpful books to read or even those leadership experts to follow. The idea is to help those future leaders on their leadership journey, benefit from our insights and advice.
Here are some famous quotes on leadership to get you started:
“Leadership is lifting a person’s vision to high sights, the raising of a person’s performance to a higher standard, the building of a personality beyond its normal limitations.” —Peter Drucker
“My job is not to be easy on people. My job is to take these great people we have and to push them and make them even better.” Steve Jobs
For me personally I got some great advice from one of my first bosses (Paul Reynolds), he said that you must lead by example and don’t get others do things that you yourself would not want to do, he also went on to say that you should always be genuine and fair, as most people will call out disingenuous behaviour in the end.
Please leave your advice/stories in the comments section below…..
