If you are in business, managing a department, or leading an organization, you are judged and measured by your financial performance. The bottom line is one of the essential pieces of the matrix. Some say if you focus on revenue, the rest will take care of itself. If it was true, every company would enjoy infinite growth year after year.
The key to any organizational growth begins with the relationships within your company. Great culture brings profit. Ensuring your people are well trained and enjoy coming to work every day must be your top priority.
With that in mind, some words of wisdom.
It's hard to lead a cavalry charge if you think you look funny on a horse.
Adlai E. Stevenson II
Power isn't control at all. Power is strength, and giving that strength to others.
Be gentle and you can be bold; be frugal and you can be liberal;
Avoid putting yourself before others and you can become a leader.
You get in life what you have the courage to ask for.
Nancy D. Solomon
Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things.
Do not wait for leaders; do it alone, person to person.
Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.
If you're not passionate enough from the start, you'll never stick it out.
The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains.
The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.
