An aphorism is nothing else but the slightest
form of writing raised to the highest level of expressive communication. Carl William Brown





Most important for us is a good spiritual relationship between employees and management.


Tatsuhiko Andoh (Japanese business executive)


Most bosses know instinctively that their power depends more on employee's compliance than on threats or sanctions.


Fernanda Bartolme (French business academics)


Reliable office staff come in the shape of mature married women working from 9.30 to 3.30 (inside school hours) during which they will do more than the 9-5ers.


Chris Brasher (British sports and business executive)


The boss must first distinguish between action information and status information. He must discipline himself not to act on problems his managers can solve, and never to act on problems when he is explicitly reviewing status. I once knew a boss who invariably picked up the phone to give orders before the end of the first paragraph in a status report. That response is guaranteed to squelch full disclosure.


Frederick P. Brooks


It is your people who make the ultimate difference.  You put the investment into training the people and then, when you get invited to the party with the big boys, that is a unique selling point.


Phil Dixon (American business businessman, founder of Newlife Cleaning Systems)


Being the boss anywhere is lonely.  Being a female boss in a world of mostly men is especially so.


Alison Gomme (British prison governor)


By working faithfully eight hours a day, you may eventually get to be a boss and work twelve hours a day.


Robert Frost (1875-1963, American poet)


If you think your boss is stupid, remember:  you wouldn't have a job if he was any smarter.


Albert A. Grant (American business executive)


When the cat's away, the mice will play


Spanish Proverb (Sayings of Spanish origin)


The person who knows HOW will always have a job. The person who knows WHY will always be his boss.


Diane Ravitch
