Last year we created an easy-for-download poster with 52 inspirational quotes on communication and we were so happy to see how well it was received. So to continue on in the spirit of motivation – and to hopefully help you lead by example and build trust with your teams in the year ahead – I’ve created another poster, this time with 52 of my favorite quotes on leadership. Quote topics range from employee engagement and authenticity as a leader to teamwork to building trust, and having the courage to lead.
Since there are 52 altogether – we encourage you to pick one a week and use it as inspiration as you continue to advance your leadership skills in the year ahead. Here are ten to get you started. Click the image below to download the whole poster (you can print and hang it in your office and/or share with colleagues and friends!).
