1. Coming together is a beginning
Keeping together is progress.
Working together is success.
— Henry Ford
The strength of the team is each individual member…the strength of each member is the team. — Phil Jackson3. Effective teamwork will not take the place of knowing how to do the job or how to manage the work. Poor teamwork, however, can prevent effective final performance. And it can also prevent team members from gaining satisfaction in being a member of a team and the organization. – Robert F. Bales4. The beautiful thing about learning is that no one can take it away from you. – B. B. King5. One key to successful leadership is continuous personal change. Personal change is a reflection of our inner growth and empowerment.—Robert E. Quinn6. People don’t resist change. They resist being changed. – Peter Senge7. Everybody has accepted by now that change is unavoidable. But that still implies that change is like death and taxes — it should be postponed as long as possible and no change would be vastly preferable. But in a period of upheaval, such as the one we are living in, change is the norm. — Peter Drucker8. A leader’s role is to raise people’s aspirations for what they can become and to release their energies so they will try to get there. — David Gergen9. Common sense is the knack of seeing things as they are, and doing things as they ought to be done. — Harriet Beecher Stowe10. If you want to be happy, set a goal that commands your thoughts, liberates your energy, and inspires your hopes.—Andrew Carnegie11. Leaders who make it a practice to draw out the thoughts and ideas of their subordinates and who are receptive even to bad news will be properly informed. Communicate downward to subordinates with at least the same care and attention as you communicate upward to superiors.—L. B. Belker12. You can have brilliant ideas, but if you can’t get them across, your ideas won’t get you anywhere.—Lee Iacocca13. The first responsibility of a leader is to define reality; The last is to say thank you. In between the two, the leader must become a servant and a debtor.—Max De Pree
