"Leadership is a privilege, not a right." "Why do you want to be a leader?" "Those who rely solely on their intelligence and business savvy fly with only one wing - and never really take off." "Leaders owe their employees a personal and genuine purpose." "Consciously use character strengths to define and realize your own purpose." "Here comes a recipe for disaster. Take a generous helping of unrealistic planning and a large helping of personal ego. Stir gently and let it simmer for two and a half years. Voila! A sunken ship!" "If you want to know a man’s character, give him power."
— Abraham Lincoln
"One of the leader’s main tasks is to develop people." "Positive emotions stimulate better neural connections, which ensure more creativity and openness to new things." "The oyster tactic: when irritations become pearls." "Tasks done while multitasking take an average of 30% longer than if done by single-tasking." "Your journey is a marathon, not a sprint. You’re exercising your leadership muscles as you grow and develop." "What helps build team spirit? Positive gossip!" "Psychological safety = Safety zone for all team members." "Fallibility is human: Practice leniency, even with yourself." "The butterfly effect: Small changes can greatly impact other things." "To achieve your goals, focus on your strengths and natural talents." "Authenticity = Recognizing your preferences and accepting yourself as you are." "Recognizing strengths in the workplace means intentionally looking for the good in the person." "Communication preferences have nothing to do with competence or incompetence. They indicate needs and values that others consider important." "Growth Mindset: You grow through challenges and learn each every time." "Effective feedback is about behavior, not about the person as such." "If you can‘t lead yourself, you can’t lead others."
