I read a great short book on leadership - Off The Wall Leadership - all based on quotations leaders have in their offices. Those who con nect with me on Twitter, Facebook or Linkedin know I like quotations.
Quotations are a way to state a view without having to take the blame for that view.
Quotations often simplify what I want to say.
Quotations can make us think.
Quotations are short and fast so very time efficient (and they usually fit the 140 character Twitter limit)
When I say the book is short - it is only 37 pages - even shorter than my Time Leadership book.
The chapters cover all the basics of leadership - Communicate, Change the Status Quo, Goal Setting, Make Decisions, Take Action and Live your Values. It does this by sharing quotes with comments by who has them on their wall.
Some of the quotes I liked:
"Just because it worked once does not mean it will work again".
"Chance favors the prepared mind"
"If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more - you are a leader" - John Quincy Adams
