Today, I share some of my favorite quotes from Kevin Cashman’s new book, The Pause Principle.
- “What sleep is to the mind and body, pause is to leadership and innovation.”
- “Managers assert drive and control to get things done; leaders pause to discover new ways of being and achieving.”
- “Managers require competency to drive results; leaders embody character to build a compelling, sustainable future.”
- “Managers accelerate to keep pace with the competition; whereas leaders paradoxically step back to go beyond the competition.”

Here are some words of wisdom from a 1990 Harvard Business Review article by John P. Kotter:
- Leadership complements management; it doesn’t replace it.
- Management controls people by pushing them in the right direction; leadership motivates them by satisfying basic human needs.
- Strong leadership with weak management is no better, and sometimes actually worse, than the reverse. The real challenge is to combine strong leadership and strong management and use each to balance the other.

I heard this advice quoted the other day and wanted to share it. It’s from William Arthur Ward, one of America’s most quoted writers of inspirational maxims:
- Do more than belong: participate.
- Do more than care: help.
- Do more than believe: practice.
- Do more than be fair: be kind.
- Do more than forgive: forget.
- Do more than dream: work.
All great advice for leaders and managers as we start 2011.
