Leadership and Retention


Leadership is About Influence - Not Authority

"Respect is how to treat everyone, not just those you want to impress." ~Richard Branson

Great leaders don't set out to be a leader. They set out to make a difference. It's never about the role – It's always about the goal.

“It’s amazing how much you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit." Harry S. Truman

“Leaders become great, not because of their power, but because of their ability to empower others.” John Maxwell

A boss has the title. A leader has the people. ~ Simon Sinek

"Take care of your employees and they will take care of your business. It’s as simple as that." Richard Branson

"People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” ~ Maya Angelou

"Culture is more important than vision. Some leaders have great vision, but have created a toxic culture where that vision will never happen." ~ Phil Cooke
  • A toxic culture cannot take root without a fertile ground. The symptoms cannot survive without a support network.
"Train people well enough so they can leave, treat them well enough, so they don’t want to." ~ Sir Richard Branson

If you don't show appreciation to those that deserve it, they'll learn to stop doing the things you appreciate.

"Leaders who don't listen will eventually be surrounded by people who have nothing to say." ~Andy Stanley

A bad boss can take a good staff and destroy it, causing the best employees to flee and the remainder to lose all motivation.

Ramo Vigrahavan Dharmah

A great verse from Ramayana: आहार निद्रा भय मैथुनं च  सामान्यमेतत् पशुभिर्नराणाम् । धर्मो हि तेषामधिको विशेष:  धर्मेण हीनाः पशुभिः समानाः ॥ AhAra-nidrA-bhaya-maithunam cha samAnam_etat_pashubhir_narANAm | dharmo hi teShAm adhiko visheSho dharmeNa hInAH pashubhiH samAnAH|| Eating, Sleep, Fear and Sex ; these habits are common between human beings and animals. It is the Dharma which is the special quality of the human beings. Without the Dharma, they are similar to the animals.  Rama is The Embodiment Of Dharma.  Maaricha, while speaking to Ravana- (Aranya Kandam 37-13): रामो विग्रहवान् धर्मः साधुः सत्य पराक्रमः | राजा सर्वस्य लोकस्य देवानाम् इव वासवः || ३-३७-१३|| raamo vigrahavaan dharmaH saadhuH satya paraakramaH | raajaa sarvasya lokasya devaanaam iva vaasavaH || 3-37-13 "Rama is the embodiment of righteousness, he is an equable person with truthfulness as his valour, and as with Indra to all gods he is the king of entire world.

Story about Samsara from Vidura in Maha Bharatha

From Sri Maha Bharatham - 11th Maha Parva (Stri Parva) - Jalapradanika Sub Parva - 5th Chapter "Dhritarashtra said, ‘Tell me in detail everything about the ways of that intelligence by which this wilderness of duties may be safely covered.’ "Vidura said, ‘Having bowed down to the Self-create, I will obey thy behest by telling thee how the great sages speak of the wilderness of life. A certain  brahmana,  living in the great world, found himself on one occasion in a large inaccessible forest teeming with beasts of prey. It abounded on every side with lions and other animals looking like elephants, all of which were engaged in roaring aloud. Such was the aspect of that forest that Yama himself would take fright at it. Beholding the forest, the heart of the  brahmana  became exceedingly agitated. His hair stood on end, and other signs of fear manifested themselves, O scorcher of foes! Entering it, he began to run hither and thither, casting his eyes on every point of
