Chapter 7: The Evolving Management Team
The Evolving Management Team
Good leaders make people feel that they're at the very heart of things, not at the periphery. Everyone feels that he or she makes a difference to the success of the organization. When that happens people feel centered and that gives their work meaning.
People are definitely a company's greatest asset. It doesn't make any difference whether the product is cars or cosmetics. A company is only as good as the people it keeps.
The great leaders are like the best conductors—they reach beyond the notes to reach the magic in the players.
