Leadership Mantras

January 22, 2009 at 9:38 am Leave a comment

Not a mission statement or an elevator pitch, they are quick and easy statements that capture the essence of what you want to accomplish. Leadership mantras work like product taglines, imbedding a message in employees’ minds with repetition. To work, a leader must use them and act on them consistently. For example…

    “You will miss 100 percent of the shots you do not take.”
    “Hire slowly, fire quickly.”
    “Hope is not a strategy.”
    “Work is not a place.”

Marketing isn’t always external. Leaders must sell their vision to employees and customers. Mantras can be effective, if occasionally hokey, tools.

What’s your favorite mantra? How do you use it? What has it helped you achieve?
