A Quote by Price Pritchett, Ph.D. on accidents, achievement, conscience, ethics, excellence, money, talent, and technology

We can't achieve excellence through talent alone. Or merely by making technological improvements. We can't even buy our way to excellence, no matter how much money we have available to spend. More dollars will never do it. We have to develop a strong corporate conscience. Ethical muscle. And that doesn't happen by accident either.

A Quote by Price Pritchett, Ph.D. on courage and people

When you see people with "the right stuff," those who choose the right over the wrong or the "iffy," let them know you're proud of them. Encourage the courageous, so they'll have the will to carry on.

A Quote by Price Pritchett, Ph.D. on ethics and funny

Ethical dilemmas have a way of sneaking up on a person. If something smells funny, stay away from it. Or help get rid of it.

A Quote by Price Pritchett, Ph.D. on action, belief, ethics, and excellence

The ethics of excellence are grounded in action - what you actually do, rather than what you say you believe. Talk, as the saying goes, is cheap.

A Quote by Price Pritchett, Ph.D. on facts, justice, and problems

Who is this vague "they" we blame for so many of our problems? "They" is the obscure party we use as our whipping boy to camouflage the fact that we - you and I and other specific human beings just like us - have to start doing things differently. "They" can't fix anything. We can.

A Quote by Price Pritchett, Ph.D. on behavior, belief, business, company, competition, ethics, purity, questions, travel, truth, and world

The question is, when so many others cut corners, shave the truth, self-deal, believe in the fast buck, and follow the crowd along the low road of least resistance, can we even afford to travel the high road of ethical behavior? Frankly, we can't afford anything else. Any other competitive angle is a pure crapshoot in today's business world. Companies with shaky ethics and shabby standards will be crippled as they try to compete in our changing world.
