Quotes on Servant Leadership

Quotes on Servant Leadership

Servant leadership is a timeless concept but the phrase “servant leadership” was coined by Robert K. Greenleaf in “The Servant as Leader.” This was an essay that he first published in 1970. In it he said:

“The servant-leader is servant first… It begins with the natural feeling that one wants to serve, to serve first. Then conscious choice brings one to aspire to lead. That person is sharply different from one who is leader first, perhaps because of the need to assuage an unusual power drive or to acquire material possessions…The leader-first and the servant-first are two extreme types. Between them there are shadings and blends that are part of the infinite variety of human nature.”

Here are some other quotes on servant leadership

Good leaders must first become good servants. Robert Greenleaf

If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader. John Quincy Adams

True leadership must be for the benefit of the followers, not to enrich the leader. John C. Maxwell

Servant-leadership is more than a concept, it is a fact. Any great leader, by which I also mean an ethical leader of any group, will see herself or himself as a servant of that group and will act accordingly. M. Scott Peck

Whatever our career may be, true leadership means to receive power from God and to use it under Gods rule to serve people in Gods way. Leighton Ford

We are here to add what we can to, not get what we can from life. Sir William Osler

A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves. Lao Tzu

The first responsibility of a leader is to define reality. The last is to say thank you. In between, the leader is a servant. Max De Pree

A Godly Leader finds strength by realizing his weakness, finds authority by being under authority, finds direction by laying down his own plans, finds vision by seeing the needs of others, finds credibility by being an example, finds loyalty by expressing compassion, finds honor by being faithful, finds greatness by being a servant. Roy Lessin

We must be silent before we can listen. We must listen before we can learn. We must learn before we can prepare. We must prepare before we can serve. We must serve before we can lead. Anon

“Leadership should be born out of the understanding of the needs of those who would be affected by it.   Marian Anderson

Steve Jobs – Quotes On Success and Creativity

Steve Jobs – Quotes On Success and Creativity

Steve Jobs remains our hero.

Kick-start your brain. New ideas come from watching something, talk to people, Steve Jobsexperimenting, asking questions and getting out of the office!

Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren’t used to an environment where excellence is expected.

You can’t just ask customers what they want and then try to give that to them. By the time you get it built, they’ll want something new.

The people who are doing the work are the moving force behind the Macintosh. My job is to create a space for them, to clear out the rest of the organization and keep it at bay.

Sometimes when you innovate, you make mistakes. It is best to admit them quickly, and get on with improving your other innovations.

We think the Mac will sell zillions, but we didn’t build the Mac for anybody else. We built it for ourselves. We were the group of people who were going to judge whether it was great or not. We weren’t going to go out and do the market research. We just wanted to build the best thing we could build.

It’s only by saying ‘no’ that you can concentrate on the things that are really important.

That’s been one of my mantras – focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.

It took us three years to build the NeXT computer. If we’d given customers what they said they wanted, we’d have built a computer they’d have been happy with a year after we spoke to them – not something they’d want now.

Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design IS how it works.

Your customers dream of a happier and better life. Don’t move products. Enrich lives.

Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes, the ones who see things differently – they’re not fond of rules…because the ones how are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.

Management Quotes

Management Quotes

Management Quotes – Good management is the art of making problems so interesting and their solutions so constructive that everyone wants to get to work and deal with them.-  Paul Hawken

“If you pick the right people and give them the opportunity to spread their wings—and put compensation as a carrier behind it—you almost don’t have to manage them. – Jack Welch

The conventional definition of management is getting work done through people, but real management is developing people through work. – Agha Hasan Abedi

So much of what we call management consists in making it difficult for people to work. – Peter Drucker

Surround yourself with the best people you can find, delegate authority, and don’t interfere as long as the policy you’ve decided upon is being carried out. – Ronald Reagan

Always recognize that human individuals are ends, and do not use them as means to your end. – Immanuel Kant

Management by objectives works if you first think through your objectives. Ninety percent of the time you haven’t. – Peter Drucker

Don’t equate activity with efficiency. You are paying your key people to see the big picture. Don’t let them get bogged down in a lot of meaningless meetings and paper shuffling. Announce a Friday afternoon off once in a while. Cancel a Monday morning meeting or two. Tell the cast of characters you’d like them to spend the amount of time normally spent preparing for attending the meeting at their desks, simply thinking about an original idea. – Harvey Mackay

Because a thing seems difficult for you, do not think it impossible for anyone to accomplish. – Marcus Aurelius

Management is efficiency in climbing the ladder of success; leadership determines whether the ladder is leaning against the right wall. – Stephen R. Covey

Hire people who are better than you are, then leave them to get on with it . . . ; Look for people who will aim for the remarkable, who will not settle for the routine. – David Ogilvy
