Groups become great only when everyone in them, leaders and members alike, is free to do his or her absolute best.
Intensity coupled with commitment is magnetic.
The best thing a leader can do for a great group is to allow its members to discover their greatness.
Great things are accomplished by talented people who believe they will accomplish them.
Managers have their eyes on the bottom line; leaders have their eyes on the horizon.
Good leaders make people feel that they’re at the very heart of things, not at the periphery. Everyone feels that he or she makes a difference to the success of the organization. When that happens people feel centered and that gives their work meaning.
