  1. Thanks Mark. Great quotes. Love the penguins :)Have you watch ‘Happy Feet’? The lead penguin jumps into the water before the others follow… Great leadership example 😉

  2. Love this one particularly – “Only one man in a thousand is a leader of men – the other 999 follow women.” [Groucho Marx]

  3. Another Drucker quote I like is:
    “Leadership is not magnetic personality—that can just as well be a glib tongue. It is not “making friends and influencing people”—that is flattery. Leadership is lifting a person’s vision to higher sights, the raising of a person’s performance to a higher standard, the building of a personality beyond its normal limitations”.

  4. Thank you for your leadership. Thanks to the leadership team.
    Turning the hearts of the people to God in single hearted devotion, forsaking all other distractions, to live for him in good times and bad. Extending the Kingdom of God, into areas where there is no hope, no love, no purpose, bringing the riches of God’s grace and compassion, abundant life, overflowing joy into the lives of people.
    Praise be to God, forever and ever.
    To live is Christ, to die is gain.
