Remembering an inspirational quotation can be a great way to feel motivated, and everyone at the Impel Marketing office has their favorite. Here are a few we find particularly inspiring, especially when we need reminding that others have faced leadership challenges before and overcome them:

  • Andrew Carnegie: “No man will make a great leader who wants to do it all himself, or to get all the credit for doing it.” This is a reminder that we need to work together as a team to accomplish anything big, and to share the credit with everyone who contributed to an effort.
  • Ken Blanchard: “The key to successful leadership today is influence, not authority.” Great leaders at Impel Marketing inspire others to work hard and complete projects; they don’t force them to do so.
  • Jim Rohn: “The challenge of leadership is to be strong, but not rude; be kind, but not weak; be bold, but not bully; be thoughtful, but not lazy; be humble, but not timid; be proud, but not arrogant; have humor, but without folly.” It’s important to remember the complicated balance leaders walk and learn skills to handle each situation.

Our leaders are inspired to work with us, develop their influence, and learn to balance all the aspects of their position. Knowing that others have met these challenges before and succeeded keeps them confident they can as well.
