The real gems in John C. Maxwell’s book, Everyone Communicates Few Connect, are the abundant leadership and communication quotes, such as these:

  • To add value to others, one must first value others.
  • People may hear your words, but they feel your attitude.
  • All good communicators get to the point before their listeners start asking, “What’s the point?”
  • The first time you say something, it’s heard. The second time, it’s recognized, and the third time it’s learned.
  • In the end, people are persuaded not by what we say, but by what they understand.
  • People pay attention when something that is said connects with something they greatly desire.

Maxwell also says that:

Management is about persuading people to do things they do not want to do, while leadership is about inspiring people to do things they never thought they could.

The book covers five principles and five practices to help readers so they can connect one-on-one, in a group, or with an audience.

Leadership Quotes From The 5 Levels Of Leadership

In Eric Jacobson On Leadership, John C. Maxwell, Leadership Books, Leadership Quotes on September 1, 2014 at 10:20 am

Here are some of my favorites quotes from John C. Maxwell’s book, The 5 Levels of Leadership — a book I believe should become a must-read for any workplace/organizational leader:

  1. Good leadership isn’t about advancing yourself.  It’s about advancing your team.
  2. Leaders become great, not because of their power, but because of their ability to empower others.
  3. Leadership is action, not position.
  4. When people feel liked, cared for, included, valued, and trusted, they begin to work together with their leader and each other.
  5. If you have integrity with people, you develop trust.  The more trust you develop, the stronger the relationship becomes.  In times of difficulty, relationships are a shelter.  In times of opportunity, they are a launching pad.
  6. Good leaders must embrace both care and candor.
  7. People buy into the leader, then the vision.
  8. Bringing out the best in a person is often a catalyst for bringing out the best in the team.
  9. Progress comes only from taking risks and making mistakes.
  10. Leaders are measured by the caliber of leaders they develop, not the caliber of their own leadership.
