- Lao-Tse

“A true champion will fight through anything.”

Invest at least 20% leading those with authority over you and 15% leading your peers.” 
- Dee Hock

- Warren G Bennis

“A leader takes people where they want to go. A great leader takes people where they don’t necessarily want to go, but ought to be.” 
- Rosalynn Carter
