Keep you serious quotes aside, we are going to discuss funny leadership quotes here.

When you are starting a new business as a leader or have been a leader for a while, people feel the need to throw advice your way whenever given the chance. And yes, said advice may be beneficial most times but other times it’s just repetitive and tedious. Therefore, I have incorporated a list of funny leadership quotes that will give you advice and a good laugh at the same time:

  • “The old adage ‘people are our greatest asset’ is wrong; ‘the right people are your greatest asset’ is more accurate.”

-Jim Collins

  • “Don’t waste your energy trying to educate or change opinions; go over, under, through, and opinions will change organically when you’re the boss. Or they won’t.”

-Tina Fey

  • “The question who ought to be boss is like who ought to be the tenor in the quartet? Obviously, the man who can sing tenor.”

  • “Leadership consists of nothing but taking responsibility for everything that goes wrong and giving your subordinates credit for everything that goes well.”
