Sources of Insight posted a collection of quotes devoted to my former teacher, Stephen Covey. Any collection of quotes by Stephen is always worth a mention!
“Charity is not a transaction and should not be measured by ROI. An act of charity is a value and should be measured by its virtue.”
“One could imagine that a dangerous person would know how to take a personality test and say the right things; almost every serial killer interviewed in this country has been found to be engaging and smart; that’s kind of scary, isn’t it?”
A short and simple post on team-building. “The best way to develop trust is to spend time with the people on your team. In today’s technology deluge we get caught up in easy communication.”
“But when the dust settles, O’Brien may be left with a group of student-athletes who care about teamwork, loyalty to a school, and the highs and lows of playing the game, rather than the system”
“If you advertise that you are trying to be ethical, you’re going to wind up hiring more ethical people. It’s kind of that field of dreams thing: if you build it, they will come.”
Any post that mentions surfing and leadership in the same sentence gets the recommendation in my book.
“[Sally] Ride was a woman and a person to be taken seriously. She was smart, determined and not one to allow biases to hold her back. In obvious and not so obvious ways, she was a pioneering role model of a leader.”
