Two Quotations on Leadership

I recently devised these 2 quotations on leadership which several people seemed to like:

“Good leaders value people and things of quality”.

“A good organization can be destroyed by poor leadership”.

My view is that one of the key qualities of effective leadership is the ability to identify and then nurture and reward excellence in others. Excellence can be varied in nature — there is not a single ‘excellence’. An organization that does not do this will fade into mediocrity.

Again, no matter how good an organization is, poor leadership can damage or even destroy it.
