- Be safe friends. Mask up. Stay home if possible. Keep your distance. We are entering dangerous new territory and the idolatrous ideology of liberty with zero thought to common good by our governor and elected leaders continues to drive us deeper into the abyss. (By @pastors4OKkids)
- All leaders who add value to others are able to do so only because they have something to give. You cannot give what you do not have. Leaders add value because they have value. (By JohnCMaxwell)
- Leaders refuse to accept ordinary results. (By @tgrierhisd)
- When you have a difficult, disrespectful, and defiant student, my biggest tip for you… is to have lots of conversations with them when they are not in trouble. These conversations are where you build rapport… and that rapport makes future confrontations less likely. (By @SteeleThoughts)
- Some of the best leaders I know ALWAYS seek information and opinions from a variety of people when making key decisions. Widening your frame of reference pushes you in fresh directions and helps you contemplate unintended consequences. (By @tgrierhisd)
- Hold out your hand to the poor, instead of demanding what you lack. In this way, you will multiply the talents you have received. (By @Pontifex)
