“To develop others, start with yourself.” — Unknown

“Years ago I stopped worrying about how to grow our church and instead focused on growing me.  As I grew me, our church grew.” — Rick Warren (20,000+ people/week)

“It is the management of self that should occupy 50% of our time and the best of our ability.” — Dee Hock

“Control is not leadership; management is not leadership; leadership is leadership is leadership. If you seek to lead, invest at least 50% of your time leading yourself—your own purpose, ethics, principles, motivation, conduct. Invest at least 20% leading those with authority over you and 15% leading your peers. If you don’t understand that you work for your mislabeled ‘subordinates,’ then you know nothing of leadership. You know only tyranny.” – Dee Hock, Founder and CEO Emeritus, VISA International
