Thriving Tips & Thoughts

WE …


The leaders who work most effectively, it seems to me, never say “I.”

And that’s not because they have trained themselves not to say “I.”

They don’t think “I.”

They think “we”; they think “team.”

They understand their job to be to make the team function.

They accept responsibility and don’t sidestep it, but “we” gets the credit….

This is what creates trust, what enables you to get the task done.

~ Peter Drucker

We Did It …

The leader is best,

When people are hardly aware of his existence,

Not so good when people praise his government,

Less good when people stand in fear,

Worst, when people are contemptuous.

Fail to honor people, and they will fail to honor you.

But of a good leader, who speaks little,

When his work is done, his aim fulfilled,

The people say, ‘We did it ourselves’.

~ Lao Tzu  (604 B.C.)
