This Week…Lots of Hot Air
Our temperatures will be in the 100s this weekend, with a heat index that will make it feel well over 100. Even though there is a light breeze…that breeze is doing nothing but move hot air.
Effective leadership is not about making speeches or being liked; leadership is defined by results, not attributes. Peter Drucker
All of this talk about hot air makes me think about leaders and leadership. I’ve worked for one of the best business owners and leaders I’ve ever known. He inspired us to do more, to want more, and to be better at what we did.
I am not afraid of an army of lions led by a sheep; I am afraid of an army of sheep led by a lion. Alexander the Great
He had a vision for where our industry would go…he readily listened to those who worked for him…and we knew he would support what we did.
Where there is no vision, the people perish. Proverbs 29:18
It takes so much more to be the “leader” of something…more than a title or name on the building…more than an election or inherited title.
The greatest leader is not necessarily the one who does the greatest things. He is the one that gets the people to do the greatest things. Ronald Reagan
There’s been so much discussion about leadership or lack of it. Who was a favorite leader of yours??
Have a “cool” weekend.
