Quote from Rapport Leadership International’s Leadership Breakthrough One leadership course

A leader discovers the hidden chasm between where things are and where things would better be, and strings up a makeshift bridge to attempt the crossing. From the other side he guides those who dare cross his rickety traverse until the engineers can build a sturdier span for all.” — Mel Ziegler, founder of Banana Republic

Leadership quotes from Rapport Leadership International’s Facebook Page.

From Randy Pausch – The Last Lecture

“The brick walls are there for a reason. The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough. They’re there to stop the other people.”
