Some thoughts & quotes from John Maxwell’s “Equipping 101″
The most expensive employee isn’t the highest paid one, but the least productive one.
-The advance man of our true selves.
-Our best friend or our worst enemy.
-Is more honest and more consistent that our words.
-Is the thing that draws people to us or repels them from us.
-Is the librarian of our past.
-Is the speaker of our present.
-Is the prophet of our future.
People become like their models. Who are our leaders models?
Finding good leaders is like mining for gold, you have to dig out 2 tons worth of dirt to find it but once found pays for all of the work.
You can tell a persons character by his/her relationships.
Finding talent in a business is no different than finding talent for a professional sports team. You have to recruit, scout, and draft the best you can find. Eventually, you will have to pay for that talent or risk loosing it; so stop investing in players that don’t grow.
Leaders attract potential leaders!
An organization’s Growth potential is directly related to its personnel potential.
As a potential leader you are either an asset to an organization or a liability to it.
