“It’s been my experience that the people who gain trust, loyalty, excitement, and energy fast are the ones who pass on the credit to the people who have really done the work. A leader doesnt need any credit… He’s getting more credit than he deserves anyway.” ~ Robert Townsend, Former CEO, Avis
“It’s not that we ignore our weaknesses; rather, we make our weaknesses irrelevant by working effectively with others so that we compensate for our weaknesses through their strengths and they compensate for their weaknesses through our strengths.” ~ Stephen M. R. Covey, The Speed of Trust

“Leaders need to remember that the point of leading is not to cross the finish line first. It’s to take people across the finish line with you. For that reason, leaders must deliberately slow their pace, stay connected to their people, enlist others to help fulfill the vision, and keep people going. You can’t do that if you’re running too far ahead of your people.” ~ John C. Maxwell, Leadership Gold
“In my organizations I don’t have employees; I have teammates. Yes, I do pay people and offer them benefits. But people don’t work for me. They work with me. We are working together to fulfill the vision. Without them, I cannot succeed. Without me, they cannot succeed. We’re a team. We reach our goals together. We need each other. If we didn’t, then one of us is in the wrong place.” ~ John C. Maxwell, Leadership Gold
“One is too small a number to achieve greatness. No accomplishment of real value has ever been achieved by a human being working alone.” ~ John C. Maxwell, Leadership Gold

“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” ~ African Proverb
