Reflections on Leadership

One of the most enjoyable exercises I do is to look back on articles or books I have read and use parts of it to reflect on my own practice.  Below, I share a few quotes from past reflections for you to use.  Please feel free to comment and share.

The Nature of Leadership by John W. Gardner

1. “We must not confuse leadership with status.” (Pg. 4)

2. “Leaders come in many forms, with many styles and diverse qualities.” (Pg. 7)

3. “And the team must be chosen for excellence in performance.” (Pg. 12)

“Give Me A Lever Long Enough…And Single-Handed I Can Move The

World” by Peter M. Senge

1. “Learning organizations are possible because, deep down, we are all learners.” (Pg. 14)

2. “Personal mastery is the discipline of continually clarifying and deepening our personal vision, of focusing our energies, of developing patience, and of seeing reality objectively.” (Pg. 17)

3. “To practice a discipline is to be a lifelong learner.” (Pg. 20)
