Episode 280 3 Quotes That Will Impact Your Leadership

On this episode of the LeadUp podcast, Mike brings us through the three quotes he thinks will impact your leadership, and talks about how they impacted his leadership.

He talks about how he didn’t start out as a good public speaker and regularly failed his speech classes and that he wasn’t born a leader and neither is anyone else. Mike had to search for modeling and mentorship at the age of 23 and has continued on that journey for the next 30 years. 

The first quote which will impact your leadership is “what we are communicated far more eloquently than anything else we say or do” which is from one of Mike’s favorite books, 7 Habits of Highly Effective Leaders. Mike explains you can call yourself a leader but if you don’t have the skills needed to be a leader, that will communicate louder than anything you say. You need to develop and plant the seeds of leadership in others. 

Mike’s second quote is “when you were made a leader, you were not given a crown. You were given the responsibility to bring out the best in others.” Mike feels this is what he has tried to do with this podcast, also explaining how the people Mike leads are the real heroes. 

Mike’s final quote is “People may not remember what you say, but they will always remember how you made them feel.” This reminds Mike to always treat everyone he comes across with respect as that is what will last on people.
