A Quote by James F. Lincoln on adoption, jobs, justice, labor, life, management, people, pride, satisfaction, security, society, and work

A people, secure in their jobs, taking pride in their work, and sure of just recognition, will help our society grow to new heights. If all industry should adopt an incentive system, the standard of living of all peoples would be quadrupled; friction between labor and management would disappear, and the satisfaction of all workers would be greatly enhanced.

A Quote by Clive Staples (Jack) Lewis on belief, body, creativity, driving, god, imagination, lies, life, management, pleasure, soul, and present

The faint, far-off results of those energies which God's creative rapture implanted in matter when He made the worlds are what we now call physical pleasures; and even thus filtered, they are too much for our present management. What would it be to taste at the fountainhead of that stream of which even these lower reaches prove so intoxicating? Yet that, I believe, is what lies before us. As St. Augustine said, the rapture of the saved soul will "flow over" into the glorified body. In the light of our present specialized and depraved appetites, we cannot imagine this [torrent of pleasure], and I warn everyone most seriously not to try. But it must be mentioned, to drive out thoughts even more misleading - thoughts that what is saved is a mere ghost, or that the risen body lives in numb insensibility. The body is made for the Lord, and these dismal fancies are wide of the mark.

A Quote by Henry H. Heimann on business, experience, honesty, intelligence, management, opportunity, practicality, problems, promotion, study, and work

The opportunity for the average workman to rise to the management positions in industry was never better than it is today. These opportunities will continue to grow in the next decade. If the average intelligent and honest workman supplements his practical work experience with study of the general problems of business he will find privileged opportunities and promotion awaiting him.

A Quote by Edward Herbert Land on creativity, management, and talent

If you're articulate enough, then you don't have to manage anybody else. Management comes in doing only one thing they can't do for themselves: finding what part of each undertaking a particular person's talents fit. Each person is talented, creative and productive in some way.

Edward Herbert Land (1909 - 91)

A Quote by Dr. Stanley G. Dulsky on ability, certainty, improvement, leadership, management, men, obligation, performance, and time

It is the social obligation of management to make certain that its executives are functioning at peak performance, both physically and psychologically. To keep top men from spinning, management must see that executives should: receive periodic medical checkups; receive periodic psychological evaluations; be given an adequate number of assistants of proper ability; have their time pressures reduced through improved selling; be given training in leadership.
