“If you can’t identify a leader, you will  A: choose the wrong people and waste a lot of time and energy trying to develop the wrong people, and B: you may be missing people who have phenomenal potential.”

“The hardest thing about leadership is finding the right people.”  

“Your organization has a personality”

“You can teach competency, you can teach skills.”

“I would rather have the right person and figure out how they fit and where they fit, rather than [hire for] the specific role”

“Permission seekers are usually great leaders.”
