Awesome Quotes from Leadership Summit

Hi Friends!

Well, here's my weekly blog post ... three days late! Been gone on a family trip to Las Vegas (and lived to tell! ;-)), and then spent two days at the Global Leadership Summit. I thought it would be fun to share some quotes from the Summit. See what you think! Which one is your favorite??

--Leaders move people from here to there by first showing why "here" is not okay, and only then showing how great "there" will be. -- Bill Hybels

--Many of us have to-do lists, but do you have a "stop doing list" too? -- Jim Collins

--Like a tiny flashlight in a closet, it doesn't take much light to dispel the darkness. -- Christine Caine

--True leadership is helping others do better by encouraging and empowering. --Tony Dungy

--To resist temptation, remember who you are. -- Adam Hamilton

--China is back. With the cross, she will be a blessing to the world. Without it, she can be a curse. Pray for China. -- Dr. Peter Zhao Xiao

--There are problems that shouldn't be solved, and tensions that shouldn't be resolved. Progress depends on the successful management of those problems and tensions. -- Andy Stanley

--In the land between where you have been and where you want to be, trust evicts complaint. They are incompatible roommates. -- Jeff Manion

--To be innovative, you have to create an atmosphere of collaboration. -- Terri Kelly

--Our nature is to be active and engaged. That's our default. If we're passive and inert, something's wrong! -- Daniel H. Pink

--Face reality as it is, not as it was or as you wish it to be. -- Jack Welch

--Others learn as much from your struggles as they do from your strengths. Be transparent. --T.D. Jakes
