There's a good reason quotes are popular. A few lines pack a lot of information that teach and inspire. Here's my list of the all time top leadership quotes.

More and more organizations like Zappos, Morning Star, and Gore are toppling the management pyramid . Here's why the view of leadership as a quality that emerges as needed makes more sense than the hierarchical view of leadership as a role.

Do you communicate with people in other countries over the Internet? It's possible you are inadvertently perpetuating the stereotype that people from the US are unconcerned with other cultures. 

Here are some easy ways to let them know that you are aware of their culture and don't automatically expect them to adapt to yours.

Retain top performers and re-engage employees through job enrichment. Learning opportunities can be a greater incentive than a raise or promotion.

I recommend this new August program with +Rockwood Leadership Institute . Actually, I recommend all programs!
 
We just added an August Art of Leadership training at Marconi Conference Center in Pt. Reyes Station, CA to our 2014 schedule! Please share with your friends and colleagues, especially the ones whose work slows down a little bit in the summer (e.g. educators and people who work for education-related orgs that work with youth during the school year). You can learn more about the Art of Leadership here: http://rockwoodleadership.org/artofleadership #nonprofit   #leadership

My pleasure, Jesse.  Glad you enjoyed it as well.  We could all do with more putting good into the world just because we can.

If you want to be a leader who people choose to follow, they must trust you. Your greatest source of influence is your character no matter what your role or position.

Being aware of the early warning signs, can help you avoid "leadership drift" and stay focused and on-target in your leadership efforts. My guest post at +Switch and Shift describes how to recognize "leadership drift" and get back on track.
