If you are not following @LYSNation on Twitter, then you missed the Top 10 LYS tweets from the past week when they were first posted.  And if you are on Twitter, you might want to check out the Tweeters who made this week’s list.


  1. “The essence of leadership is not to portray yourself as some sort of know-it-all, but your ability to develop the people you are working with, so they themselves can take the initiative and do the organizational drive.” -Pat Chambers (By @effectleader)


  1. Words matter. You can criticize and tear down or you can speak life into your people. Leaders worth following use words that encourage, build up, promote, inspire and give hope. (By @KevinDeShazo)


  1. Religious teachings should be funded by voluntary contributions, not through compulsory taxation. That arrangement protects the conscience of taxpayers and the integrity of religious school alike. (By @pastors4OKkids)


  1. “Over the past 20 years, education policy has increasingly been enacted not to satisfy the needs of the students and their families, but the wants of the wealthy and powerful who are converting public education from a civic enterprise to a marketplace for edu-vendors” (By @FloridaChurches)


  1. Members of an organization absorb the personality of their leader. (By @DevinPadavil)


  1. We must protect public money and kids’ futures from predatory business practices. (By @JuliaKirt)


  1. Winning is not a sometime thing, it’s an all the time thing. You don’t do things right once in a while. You do them right all the time. –Vince Lombardi (By @CoachMotto)


  1. And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm is all about.(By @effectleader)


  1. High performance isn’t an accident. Practice it: You don’t get better by leading. You get better when you practice leadership behaviors. If you aren’t practicing, you aren’t improving. (By @Leadershipfreak)


  1. Big Money likes charter schools because hidden budgets allow them to push public funds to private interest. It’s not about education. (By @FloridaChurches)


Think. Work. Achieve.
