------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ LEADERSHIP GRAFFITI Richard Feinberg, Ph.D. Department of Consumer Sciences & Retailing Purdue University 1. Oddly, the most dangerous people in business are the ones who always tell you exactly what you want to hear. CPA Advertisement, June 1998 2. "Successful people do what unsuccessful people won't." Bud Hadfield, "Dare to Soar," Successories Library 3. "If you go to your grave without painting your masterpiece, it will not get painted. No one else can paint it. Only you.” Gordon MacKenzie, "Orbiting the Giant Hairball" 4. You don’t have to be a “person of influence” to be influential. In fact, the most influential people in my life are probably not even aware of the things they’ve taught me. Scott Adams, Cartoonist; New York, 1998 5. We keep it simple and structured. Each presentation has to answer four specific questions: What is it? Why is it important to the industry? Why is it important to Ikonic? What are the three things we should take away from the presentation? Robert May, CEO, Ikonic Interactive Inc. July 1998 6. If you spend enough time planning, execution time can be very short. If you work on the fly, you do things fast. But you may do the wrong things - - which slows down the project. Chris Higgins, Senior Vice President, Bank America, July 1998. 7. You have 1000 hours. What are you going to do with them? 8. "Create something bigger than yourself." Bud Hadfield, "Dare to Soar," Successories Library 9. People tend to confuse their purpose (What I love to do?), with their ideals (How am I comfortable behaving?), and their desired results (What can I achieve?). Robin Hirschberg, career expert, July 1998 Center for Customer Driven Quality www.ccdq.com

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 10. Discovering our ‘reason for being’ is one of the toughest challenges that life assigns us. There are little ways in which we can fine-tune the picture of our lives and make it clearer, more colorful, and more meaningful. In my department, one of the issues we always focus on is how to create value for our internal and external customers. That issue affects our personal lives too: We all want to add value, make a difference, and lead a good life. Remember, if you’re not happy with the picture of your life, pull out the owner’s manual...and start making adjustments. You just might surprise yourself with the results! Andy Cook, Educational Coordinator Guardian Life Insurance, July 1998 11. I think there is a ‘sweet spot’ that each of us has. It’s the kind of work we want to perform, the kind of work that makes us proud. Larry Smith, Professor, Harvard University, July 1998 12. Without some kind of personal vision, you have no direction…you follow the herd. And you may not find out until it’s too late that the herd is leading you right off a cliff. Hutcheson, in Fast Company, June/July, 1998 13. I realized that a 10% difference in how much work I did was not the difference between success and failure .
