Superheroes of Leadership

By Susan Schilke; June 1, 2015

That’s you.  It’s anyone who chooses to get out in front, doing the right thing and endeavoring to achieve goals for themselves and their organization.  It’s not about position or power, it’s about character and action.  It’s also the theme of the TeamStrength Leadership Workshop 2015.

We can be superheroes of leadership any time we use our exceptional abilities to do good and fight evil.  How are you a superhero of leadership?  Think about it, and be inspired by some quotes from the world of superheroes:

“I believe there’s a hero in all of us, that keeps us honest, gives us strength, makes us noble and finally allows us to die with pride.”

-Spiderman’s Aunt May

“A hero can be anyone, even a man doing something as simple and reassuring as putting a coat around a little boy’s shoulder to let him know that the world hadn’t ended.”


“Life is locomotion.  If you’re not moving, you’re not living.  But there comes a time when you’ve got to stop running away from things and you’ve got to start running towards something.  You’ve got to forge ahead, keep moving, even if your path isn’t lit.  Trust that you’ll find your way.”

-The Flash

“Dreams save us.  Dreams lift us up and transform us.”


“True happiness is found along a middle road.  There lies the balance and the harmony, with reason and emotion not at war, but hand in hand.”


“With great power comes great responsibility.”Invincible_Iron_Man_Vol_1_14_Silvestri_Variant_Textless

-Spider-Man’s Uncle Ben

“Courage is nothing without the will to use it.”

-Iron Man

“You will give the people an ideal to strive towards.  They will race behind you.  They will stumble, they will fall, but in time, they will join you in the sun.  In time, you will help them accomplish wonders.”

-Jor El (father of Superman)

“Someone must have ripped the ‘Q’ section out of my dictionary, cause I don’t know the meaning of the word ‘quit.’”

-Mr. Furious

“Everything’s impossible until somebody does it.”
