Last Friday’s Chick-fil-A Leadercast was an incredible experience! Listening to leaders such as Jack Welch, Condoleezza Rice and Mike Krzyzewksi filled up my leadership cup to overflowing. Another great blogger Brian Dodd has shared even more quotes from each of the speakers. Here are seven great quotes from the Leadercast Friday:
1. “Growth creates complexity, which requires simplicity.” Andy Stanley shared a great reminder that in the midst of the complexity that comes with success, we need to continuously seek the simplicity that made us successful. More quotes from his talk here.
2. “You don’t need more time, you need more space.” David Allen had great insight into the truth that as much as we wish for more time in the week, that’s not our greatest need. Proper perspective and engagement with our time is what’s most important. More quotes from his talk here.
3. “If everything is important, nothing is important.” Henry Cloud shared the absolute importance of focus, prioritizing, and pruning to achieve mastery in your field. More quotes from his talk here.
4. “Leaders create an environment conducive to success.” Mike Krzyzewski shared his story of coaching the gold medal winning Olympic basketball team, and how many overlooked intangibles contribute to success. More quotes from his talk here.
5. “Simply leading in a complex world is recognizing the one thing you can do to improve the situation.” Faced with sometimes impossible diplomatic crises, Condoleezza Rice shared her outlook that enabled her to be an incredible Secretary of State. More quotes from her talk here.
6. “70% of my time was teaching moment. The team that fields the best players wins.” Jack Welch shared just how important coaching and developing his staff was to the success of his organization. More quotes from his talk here.
7. “Panic is contagious. Stupid is 100% contagious.” LCDR Rorke Denver shared how he kept his calm through some of the world’s toughest environments: Navy SEALS training. More quotes from his talk here.
