Great Quotes and the Meanings Behind Them
The Nevada State Apartment Association (NVSAA) recently completed an exercise at our Annual Board Retreat. This exercise introduces the topic of leadership and encourages each Board Member to make a personal statement about his or her understanding of what makes a good leader. We placed thoughtful leadership quotes on the walls. The quotes touched on different aspects of leadership; in short, they had a variety of different meanings. We asked the Board of Directors to leave their chairs and walk around the room reading each of the quotes (in no particular order). Then have them stand by one quote that resonates well with their personal views on what makes a good leader. When all Board of Directors selected a quote we had each Director explain to the group why his or her chosen quote is important to them -- share their leadership insight. Here were the quotes, who wrote them and what they meant:

The difficult we do immediately; the impossible takes a little longer.
– Slogan of the United States Army Services Forces

• There is nothing we can’t accomplish as a team.

Feel free to use this exercise with your teams, it is a great team builder and ice breaker to see where your team stands.
