Management and leadership

Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things.

Take time to reflect

Follow effective action with quiet reflection. From the quiet reflection will come even more effective action.

Development!

The greatest danger in times of turbulence is not the turbulence; it is to act with yesterday’s logic.

Less talk, more action!

Plans are only good intentions unless they immediately degenerate into hard work.

Leadership

The leaders who work most effectively, it seems to me, never say “I.” And that’s not because they have trained themselves not to say “I.” They don’t think “I.” They think “we”; they think “team.” They understand their job to be to make the team function. They accept responsibility and don’t sidestep it, but “we” gets the credit. This is what creates trust, what enables you to get the task done.

Work hard!

Plans are only good intentions unless they immediately degenerate into hard work.
Peter Drucker

Ahh I love Drucker quotes, this man really knows something about hard work. Everyone has plans, some people more, some people less. But all plans have this thing in common: If they don’t degenerate into action, they are worth nothing. A plan without action is like an engine without fuel. You can have the best engine in the world, but as long as you don’t put fuel in it, it won’t run at all!
