In leadership, no word is more important than trust.
The freedom to grow personally, the freedom to make mistakes and learn from them, the freedom to work hard and the freedom to be yourself - these four freedoms should be guaranteed by every leader in every organization.
There are five fundamental qualities that make every team great: communication, trust, collective responsobility, caring and pride. I like to think of each as separate finger on the fist.
Too many rules and too much predictability absolutely kill creativity.
It takes courage not only to make decisions, but to live with those decisions afterward.
Too many rules get in the way of leadership. They just put you in a box. People set rules to keep from making decisions.
It si important to remember that every person is different and has to be motivated differently.
True friends will tell each other tough things.
Don´t worry about losing. Think about winning.
The leader has to show the face his team needs to see.
The deal is the handshake. The deal is that there won´t be any deals.
Every season is a journey. Every journey is a lifetime.
Leaders have to search for the heart on a team, because the person who has it can bring out the best in everybody else.
You can´t just tell people what to do and then expect them to perform well.
Two are better than one if two act as one. If you believe that two acting as one are better than one, just imagine what an entire team acting as one can do.
Leaders should be reliable without being predictable.
Whatever a leader does NOW sets up what he does LATER. And there´s always a LATER.
