“Old school models of leadership are not enough anymore. Telling people what to do doesn’t lead to creativity. Instead, leadership is about generating and embracing bold ideas—and that all starts with asking questions.”

This weekend, Canadians celebrate Thanksgiving. In the spirit of gratitude, I am sharing with you a quote that calls us to live appreciation and not just “say thanks”. In business, as in life, gratitude and appreciation is characteristic of great leaders, mentors, teachers and friends. Happy Thanksgiving!
“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.”
John F. Kennedy
From Esther Clark’s article “Seemingly Bad Ideas” published April 2016.
There’s alot of buzz lately about one of my favorite authors of today, Simon Sinek. Here is a timeless quote from a great book on leadership called Leaders Eat Last.
“the true price of leadership is the willingness to place the needs of others above your own. Great leaders truly care about those they are privileged to lead and understand that the true cost of the leadership privilege comes at the expense of self-interest.”
Forever is composed of nows. – Emily Dickinson
