Leadership and Executive Coaching Quotes

Today, I read a great report from The Federal Consulting Group--part of the US Treasury Department that offers executive coaching to the federal government. To be upfront, I've been an outside coach repenting this group with federal clients. After reading this report, The FCG Executive Coaching Guide: Steps for a Successful Coaching Partnership, I was struck by the quality of quotes in the text. So, here are some of the quotes:

  • "Our chief want in life is somebody who makes us do what we can." ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
  • "When two men in a business always agree, one of them is unnecessary." Unknown
  • "Man's mind, once stretched by a new idea, never regains its original dimensions." ~ Oliver Wendell Holmes
  • "Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity." ~Elmer Letterman (who?)
  • "Chance favors the prepared mind."~ Louis Pasteur
  • "Personally, I'm always ready to learn, although I do not always like being taught." ~Winston Churchill
  • "When you hire people who are smarter than you are, you prove you are smarter than they are." ~ R.H. Grant
  • "Learning is a willingness to let one's ability and attitude to change in response to new ideas, information and experiences." ~ Peter Vaill
  • "The significant problems we face cannot be resolved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them." ~ Albert Einstein
  • "Over the long run, superior performance depends on superior learning." ~Peter Senge.
