    Hi Shawn, great managing quotes you have submitted here. I enjoyed reading them.

    I believe that every organization needs great managers, and the individual that is able to delegate tasks with ease, have the correct attitude and the ability to motivate their employees, will be highly valued.

    Ultimately, a great manager is somebody who can make the sum of a team greater than a collection of individuals. Great managers handle people with grace and ease, caring for them and encouraging them to achieve their goals. Finally, a great manager allows the team to flourish and creates value to each individual as well as to the company.

    Here are a few quotes I would like to share:

    ~ Managing is like holding a dove in your hand. Squeeze too hard and you kill it, not hard enough and it flies away. ~
    Tommy Lasorda

    ~ Good management consists in showing average people how to do the work of superior people. ~

    Peter F. Drucker

    ~ Effective leadership is putting first things first. Effective management is discipline, carrying it out. ~

    ~ Good management is the art of making problems so interesting and their solutions so constructive that everyone wants to get to work and deal with them. ~
    Paul Hawken

    ~ So much of what we call management consists in making it difficult for people to work ~
    Peter F. Drucker

    ~ The smarter the journalists are, the better off society is. [For] to a degree, people read the press to inform themselves-and the better the teacher, the better the student body. ~

    ~ In the business world, the rear view mirror is always clearer than the windshield. ~ Warren Buffett
