Leaders are readers, disciples want to be taught and everyone has gifts within that need to be coached to excellence.
The best defense is great offense. . .We fight through our mistakes and failures by maximizing our forward motion.
Challenges in life always seek leaders and leaders seek challenges.
The enemy doesn't warn its target. Emergencies do not make appointments, and the greatest battles of life are often surprises.
Success is often followed by failure. Yesterday's victory doesn't win today's battle.
Being willing to listen to others and let them speak into our lives is a critical attitude leaders must have. It is not weakness to get good advice - it is strength to seek it out.
We are given talent but we choose to have character.
A tough hide with a tender heart is a goal that all leaders must have.
Character is contagious.
We largely become what we have observed and respected.
One uncontrolled character flaw can ruin your greatest accomplishment.
You are never wrong doing the right thing.
Every great leader has incredible odds to overcome.
To be accountable means that we are willing to be responsible to another person for our behavior and it implies a level of submission to another's opinions and viewpoints.
Leadership matters more in times of uncertainty.
