A Quote by Paul G. Hoffman on advertising, business, managers, and sales

If we are to have a stabilized market demand, selling pressure should be maintained . . . perhaps increased . . .at the first sign of a decline in business. I know of no single way business managers can do more to stabilize market demand than through greater stabilization of sales and advertising expenditures.

A Quote by Paul Garrett on beginning, business, defeat, employees, good, intention, managers, and security

Unless a business can stay in the black over the long term, averaging the bad years with good, it cannot sustain itself. A manager may have laudable social intentions of providing security for his employees, better products at lower prices for his customers. But if he cannot keep the business going in realizing these intentions he is defeated before he begins.

We can't win at home. We can't win on the road. As general manager, I just can't figure out where else to play.

A Quote by Muhammad Ali on doctors, education, lawyers, managers, money, and trade

I say get an education. Become an electrician, a mechanic, a doctor, a lawyer - anything but a fighter. In this trade, it's the managers that make the money and last the longest.

A Quote by Lee Iacocca on computers, good, and managers

If I had to sum up in one word what makes a good manager, I'd say decisiveness. You can use the fanciest computers to gather the numbers, but in the end you have to set a timetable and act.

A Quote by John Music on action, direction, inspiration, leadership, managers, motivation, people, and work

Many managers know how to get things done through people, to turn people into tools, but not how to direct them, inspire them or motivate them. Leadership provides a scenario to the people they're leading. People are willing to work their butts off if you give them an objective, show them how to reach it, and prove that you mean it through action and consistency.

A Quote by John Adair on attitude, blindness, humility, leadership, life, managers, and mistakes

The chief executive who knows his strengths and weaknesses as a leader is likely to be far more effective than the one who remains blind to them. He also is on the road to humility - that priceless attitude of openness to life that can help a manager absorb mistakes, failures or personal shortcomings.

A Quote by John A. Challenger on business, direction, employees, jobs, learning, management, managers, needs, opportunity, proof, skill, and technology

Today's newest breed of employee is the self-manager. These workers are the ones who survived the recent. waves of downsizing, both by seeking and capitalizing, on new opportunities and by learning new skills. Because these employees increasingly possess the skills and technological tools to supervise themselves-individually or in teams-they are eliminating the need for layers of management. More executives will soon find their jobs redundant, while self-managing frontline workers become highly valued and virtually fire-proof. Everyone should strive to become self-managed. It is clearly the direction business is taking.
