performance

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.

A Quote by Dr. James Bryant Conant on aristocracy, excellence, honesty, integrity, life, and performance

Each honest calling, each walk of life, has its own elite, its own aristocracy based on excellence of performance. . . . There will always be the false snobbery which tries to place one vocation above another. You will become a member of the aristocracy in the American sense only if your accomplishments and integrity earn this appellation.
