10 Leadership Quotes To Live By (or Aspire To!) in 2021

10 Leadership Quotes To Live By (or Aspire To!) in 2021

This week we’ve selected 10 leadership quotes to inspire... with a twist.

The quotes

1) “Do what you feel in your heart to be right – for you’ll be criticized anyway.”

2) “Emotional intelligence is the ability to use emotion to increase your own and others’ success.”

3) “Leadership is about the team – the culture they keep and embrace, it’s about empathy for your customers, clients, employees and the communities where you do business, it’s about doing the right thing for the right reasons, being confident enough to take risks, and responsible enough to think of those who your decisions and risks may affect.”

4) “I learned to always take on things I’d never done before. Growth and comfort do not coexist.”

5) “Continuous learning leads to continuous improvement. Commit yourself to advancing your knowledge, skills, and expertise. The business environment is quickly changing, and your understanding of the leading practices, thinking, and emerging tools will help you manage for better results. Be a lifelong student.”

6) “People become motivated when you guide them to the source of their own power and when you make heroes out of employees who personify what you want to see in the organization.”

7) “What I wanted was to be allowed to do the thing in the world that I did best – which I believed then and believe now is the greatest privilege there is. When I did that, success found me.”

8) “There is nothing like a concrete life plan to weigh you down. Because if you always have one eye on some future goal, you stop paying attention to the job at hand, miss opportunities that might arise, and stay fixedly on one path, even when a better, newer course might have opened up.”

9) “If you are successful, it is because somewhere, sometime, someone gave you a life or an idea that started you in the right direction. Remember also that you are indebted to life until you help some less fortunate person, just as you were helped.”

10) “If your actions create a legacy that inspires others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, then you are an excellent leader.”
