Leadership Wisdom of:
Leading from the Middle:
"You are not here merely to make a living. You are here to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, and with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world. You impoverish yourself if you forget this errand."
"Leadership is all about people. It is not about organizations. It is not about plans. It is not about strategies. It is all about people--motivating people to get the job done. You have to be people-centered."
"Think big about what you can achieve; think small about how to achieve it. That's because you get things done through individuals and small groups of individuals."
--Gen. Bill Creech
"Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power."
"Man becomes great exactly in the degree in which he works for the welfare of his fellow men."
Really? A Site Just for Government Managers?
Absolutely! This site was developed by and for government managers because we believe that having great leadership at all levels is critical to the effectiveness of government.
Learning to lead does not require permission from anyone. It merely requires that individual managers choose to lead and make the commitment to becoming the best leaders they can be. That is a very personal decision—and it happens one person at a time. GovLeaders.org serves as a free resource for all managers who decide to rise to that challenge to become lifelong students of leadership.
