Leadership Motivation

Leaders, in their role with all of the tasks and responsibilities they shoulder, need to be self-motivated. Motivation is that drive or urge that gets things done. Leaders need to tap into their intrinsic needs, which meets needs within, while extrinsic needs are gained outside.

Mindset is a big factor in motivation; the more positive and self-assured one is, the more motivated they will be to set and achieve goals. As these are set in the prefrontal cortex, keeping positive keeps cortisol at bay so it will function better. A great way to do this is to say, and repeat, positive words and affirmation as they provide inspiration and activate positive thoughts and chemicals.

In light of this, here are some motivational quotes to inspire and give that boost of motivation:

“A good objective of leadership is to help those who are doing poorly to do well and to help those who are doing well to do even better.” (Jim Rohn)

“Great leaders see what others refuse to see, approach the ignored, and give hope not pity.” (Harold S. Geneen)


“To be a great leader and so always master of the situation, one must of necessity have a great thinker in action. An eagle was never yet hatched from a goose’s egg.” (James Thomas)

“The only way of finding the limits of the possible is by going beyond them into the impossible.” (Arthur C. Clarke)

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit.” (Aristotle)
