In honor of this Mother’s Day weekend, I’d like to share my favorite inspirational quotes from women. Here are two:
“Being powerful is like being a lady. If you have to tell people you are, you aren’t.” – Margaret Thatcher, Prime Minister of United Kingdom
Translation: There’s no need to flaunt your title or your position. If you’re good at leading, anyone who’s interested will figure out that you are the leader.
“My grandfather once told me that there were two kinds of people; those who do the work and those who take the credit. He told me to try and be in the first group; there was much less competition.” – Indira Gandi, Prime Minister of India
Translation: Leaders aren’t afraid to work, and when good work happens, they remain humble by giving credit to others.
Add to these by downloading additional inspirational quotes from great women here.
I encourage you to absorb the inspiration as you determine which quotes you will use to inspire people around you.
Share your favorites in your meetings, presentations, and daily conversations as you deem appropriate.
Most of all, enjoy the joy and love of the mothers in your life this weekend … and enjoy your leadership journey!
