Lee Iacocca’s quotes

I forgot to shake hands and be friendly. It was an important lesson about leadership.

I’ve always found that the speed of the boss is the speed of the team.

If you want to make good use of your time, you’ve got to know what’s most important and then give it all you’ve got.

Management is nothing more than motivating other people.

Motivation is everything. You can do the work of two people, but you can’t be two people. Instead, you have to inspire the next guy down the line and get him to inspire his people.

So what do we do? Anything. Something. So long as we just don’t sit there. If we screw it up, start over. Try something else. If we wait until we’ve satisfied all the uncertainties, it may be too late.

Talk to people in their own language. If you do it well, they’ll say, ‘God, he said exactly what I was thinking.’ And when they begin to
respect you, they’ll follow you to the death.

The ability to concentrate and to use time well is everything.

The discipline of writing something down is the first step toward making it happen.
