Maxwell Quotes

I really love John Maxwell’s writing. It has been an exciting to read through many of his book and just soak in his leadership thoughts, theories and techniques. Here are some of my favorite quotes from his legendary book The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership

“Leadership is Influence – nothing more, nothing less.”

“The higher you want to climb, the more you need leadership. The greater the impact you want to make, the greater you influence needs to be.”

“True leadership cannot be awarded, appointed, or assigned. It comes only from influence, and that cannot be mandated. It must be earned.”

“Being put in charge is not the same as being a leader.”

“I believe the bottom line in leadership isn’t how far we advance ourselves but how far we advance others.”

“Leaders cannot lose trust and continue to influence others. Trust is the foundation of leadership.”

“Who you are is who you attract.”

“As a leader, your success is measured by your ability to actually take the people where they need to go. But you can do that only if the people first buy into you.”

Sometimes it’s just fun to read over a few good leadership quotes. Enjoy!
