“Some people are wired negatively, while others are hot-wired. The way in which one perceives the world is what makes them a leader, as much as being nurtured… with the right environment, learnings, support and encouragement, good people can become good leaders.”Rod Young – Chairman DC Strategy Group
“I encourage (people) to dream. I have a saying: A single dream is more powerful than a thousand realities. This is about creating self-fulfilling prophecies.”Garry Crockett – Chairman, China Ready Group
“Many leaders suffer from a messiah syndrome—they think that they have all the ideas……. It should be a KPI for all leaders to ensure that the ideas picked up on are not all their own.”Trevor Cairney – President, NSW Business Chamber
“Every individual has the ability to improve their performance, and leadership is no different from any other trait. Whether one achieves greatness has more to do with effort than innate ability.”Don Taylor – Chairman, GrainCorp
“…without innate qualities such as self-confidence, optimism, generosity of spirit, resilience and courage, to name but a few, leadership is not possible.”The Hon. Patricia Forsythe – Executive Director, Sydney Business Chamber
“Leadership is about trial and error… A great leader will always be trying new things and developing new ways to get the most out of people.”Kate Carnell – Australian Small Business and Family Enterprise Ombudsman
“Values, passion and that inner drive to succeed (are important to me). The person who gets the job done, no matter how hard it is. The person who rolls up their sleeves and does whatever needs to be done.”Ellie Brown – Ellie Brown Business Solutions
“My close family and friends are really important in anchoring me to a place where I am loved, not for what I’ve achieved but for who I am. This gives me a really strong sense of self.”Elizabeth Broderick – Principal, Elizabeth Broderick & Co.
“In order to become a great leader, you need to master the Seven Levels of Leadership Consciousness: Survival, Relationship, Self-esteem, Transformation, Self-cohesion, Making a difference, and Service.”Richard Barrett – Founder and Chairman, Barrett Values Centre
“Leadership is a growing process. The more I grow, the more the business and my people grow. It‘s absolutely essential to help and allow others to develop.”Michael Derin – CEO, Azure Group
