It’s been a while since I’ve written a “Maxwell Quote” post. Since I really like Maxwell quotes, I figured I do it again. You can find my last post here. Most, if not all of these come from his classic book The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership.
“People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.”
“Who you attract is not determined by what you want. It’s determined by who you are.”
“For leaders to be effective, they need to connect with people. Why? Because you first have to touch people’s hearts before you ask them for a hand. That is the Law of Connection.”
“There are no Lone Ranger leaders. Think about it: if you’re alone, you’re not leading anybody, are you?”
“Followers are always watching what you do.”
“Victorious leaders possess an unwillingness to accept defeat. The alternative to winning is totally unacceptable to them.”
“Leaders never advance to a point where they no longer need to prioritize.”
“The only way to lead leaders is to become a better leader yourself. If you keep growing and stay ahead of the people you lead, then you will be able to keep adding value to the leaders who follow you.”
If you are a leader of any kind and haven’t read this book, I would strongly recommend it. It has become my go-to right now for many different leadership guidelines.
