Leadership Quotes That Inspire Us

As we improve our leadership skills, we look to various sources for inspiration. It often comes in the form of a powerful quote from one of the world’s most respected leaders. Here are a few words of wisdom from highly accomplished people that keep us motivated to sharpen our management acumen around the Denver Connections office.

Jack Welch became a household name during his time as the Chairman and CEO of General Electric. He once said, “Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others.” This is the attitude that helped Welch thrive as a CEO, and it’s also one we apply in our approach to effective management.

Steve Jobs is another management icon who continues to inspire people. We’re no exceptions here at Denver Connections HQ, frequently looking to quotes from the Apple cofounder when we need some extra motivation. One example is when Jobs stated, “Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.” We strive to create innovative campaigns that establish our company as an industry leader and enhance our skills at the same time.

Business writer Ralph Nichols also gave us something to think about when he said, “The most basic of all human needs is the need to understand and be understood. The best way to understand people is to listen to them.” Becoming stronger listeners is a major aspect of our leadership development, because we know people are more engaged in their work when they know their voices are being heard.
