“A leader takes people where they want to go. A great leader takes people where they don’t necessarily want to go, but ought to be.”- Rosalynn Carter
This quote is for all the leaders out there working to inspire their team and lead them in a direction that is both positive for the company and the individual. Great leaders do not only direct, but they also have the ability to foresee how specific skills will work together.
Rosalynn Carter was the wife of Jimmy Carter, the 39th President of the US, and therefore the First Lady from 1977 to 1981. But, Rosalynn Carter was a leader in her own right. While her husband was leading as president, Rosalynn was very politically active serving as Jimmy Carter’s closest adviser and sitting on the Cabinet. She was also a strong supporter for many causes in the 1970s and 1980s in America and is most well known for her advocacy in mental health research. She represented Jimmy in many meetings both domestically and internationally, with her most notable role being appointed as a diplomat to Latin America in 1977.
And her advice on leading others?
Rosalynn also believed in being tough enough to follow through with something. She said that doubt will not lead to accomplishment, and having confidence in your ability is the key to succeeding. Great team leaders in business and politics believe in their people more than their people believe in themselves. This allows leaders to push their team members to new places and prove to them that they have the confidence they need to make it happen.

How does the power of play influence success at work? Many people are working longer and harder, thinking that this will solve the problem of an ever-increasing workload. But they are still falling behind, becoming chronically overwhelmed, and burning out. Work is where we spend much of our time. That is why it is especially important for us to play during work. Without some recreation, our work suffers. Success at work doesn’t depend on the amount of time you work. It depends on upon the quality of your work.
