The Story Behind the Quote

When words become beacons and mirrors

Leaders are a special breed and the element of inspiring and getting inspired is part of their DNA. For that, they all have their favorite quotes which depict their character, their dreams and the person they aspire to become reaching their own image of balance and fulfilment. They repeat them on a daily basis both at work and at home and they are their mantras. We will find out:

  • How simple words become a mantra?
  • What is the story behind it?
  • Does the same phrase change meanings in time following our experiences?
  • How can the same words inspire the rest of us?

Continuing our CEO Stories concept, five leaders will share with us their personal stories and points of view as to how a few words, put in the right order and sometimes with the validation of some of the wise ones that ever walked on this earth, became their mental lighthouses and gave the opportunity to others to get inspired and walk on the same trail. After all this is leadership, isn’t it?
