Top 10 Lean Quotes from 2021

Throughout our lifetimes many people touch our lives and leave us with words of wisdom. These can both be a source of new learning and also a point to pause and reflect upon lessons we have learned. Within Lean active learning is an important aspect on this journey because without learning we cannot improve.

10. "Autumn shows us how beautiful it is to let things go."   —  Unknown

9. "Over the years I've learned that, to be a good manager, you need to have passion, and you need to have a strong character. Without those things, the job is very, very difficult."   —  Claudio Ranieri

8. "You get what you expect and you deserve what you tolerate."   —  Mark Graban

7. "Ultimately, leadership is not about glorious crowning acts. It’s about keeping your team focused on a goal and motivated to do their best to achieve it, especially when the stakes are high and the consequences really matter. It is about laying the groundwork for others’ success, and then standing back and letting them shine."   —  Chris Hadfield, astronaut and former Commander of the International Space Station

6. "What do you think?"   —  Tom Peters

5. "The true mark of a leader is the willingness to stick with a bold course of action — an unconventional business strategy, a unique product-development roadmap, a controversial marketing campaign — even as the rest of the world wonders why you're not marching in step with the status quo. In other words, real leaders are happy to zig while others zag. They understand that in an era of hyper-competition and non-stop disruption, the only way to stand out from the crowd is to stand for something special."   —  Bill Taylor, from article "Do You Pass the Leadership Test?"

4. "Opportunities are like sunrises. If you wait too long, you miss them."   —  William Arthur Ward

3. "October is the fallen leaf, but it is also a wider horizon more clearly seen. It is the distant hills once more in sight, and the enduring constellations above them once again."   —  Hal Borland

2. "No man will make a great leader who wants to do it all himself or get all the credit for doing it."   —  Andrew Carnegie

1. “You can have brilliant ideas, but if you can’t get them across, your ideas won’t get you anywhere."   —  Lee Iacocca
