Bekende quotes van John Kotter

  1. “Leaders establish the vision for the future and set the strategy for getting there.”
  2. “Because management deals mostly with the status quo and leadership deals mostly with change, in the next century we are going to have to try to become much more skilled at creating leaders.”
  3. “A higher rate of urgency does not imply ever-present panic, anxiety, or fear. It means a state in which complacency is virtually absent.”
  4. “Great leaders understand that historical success tends to produce stable and inwardly focused organizations, and these outfits, in turn, reinforce a feeling of contentment with the status quo.”
  5. “Tradition is a very powerful force.”
  6. “We are always creating new tools and techniques to help people, but the fundamental framework is remarkably resilient, which means it must have something to do with the nature of organizations or human nature.”
  7. “Managers are trained to make incremental, programmatic improvements. They aren’t trained to lead large-scale change.”
  8. “The rate of change is not going to slow down anytime soon. If anything, competition in most industries will probably speed up even more in the next few decades.”
  9. “Transformation is a process, not an event.”
  10. “Management makes a system work. It helps you do what you know how to do. Leadership builds systems or transforms old ones.”
  11. “Nothing undermines change more than behavior by important individuals that is inconsistent with the verbal communication.”
