These are all Wisdoms Realtive to Leadership
Leaders, whether in the family, in business, in government, or in education, must not allow themselves to mistake intentions for accomplishments.
Managers help people to see themselves as they are. Leaders help people to see themselves better than they are.
Leaders must not be naive. I used to say, “Liars shouldn’t lie.” What a sad waste of words that is! I found out liars are
supposed to lie. That’s why we call them liars — they lie! What else would you expect them to do?
We must learn to help those who deserve it, not just those who need it. Life responds to deserve not need.
My mentor said, “Let’s go do it,” not “You go do it.” How powerful when someone says, “Let’s”!
Leaders must understand that some people will inevitably sellout to the evil side. Don’t waste your time wondering why; spend your time discovering who.
When dealing with people, I generally take the obvious approach. When someone says, “This always happens to me and that always happens to me. Why do these things always happen to me?” I simply say, “Beats me. I don’t know. All I know is that those kinds of things seem to happen to people like you.”
We could all use a little coaching. When you’re playing the game, it’s hard to think of everything.
A good objective of leadership is to help those who are doing poorly to do well and to help those who are doing well to do even better.
As a leader you should always start with where people are before you try to take them to where you want them to go.
