Sample Quotes on Management:

‘Try to handle each piece of paper only once.’ Every time you pick up a piece of paper needing your action, failing to act only means you’ll have to double your time and energy spent on it by picking it up again.

--Michael LeBoeuf

A school without a public relations program is like winking at a girl in the dark. You know what you’re doing, but no one else does.

--Steuart Henderson Britt

High expectations are the key to everything.

--Sam Walton

What gets measured gets done.

—Tom Peters

Be decisive. Right or wrong, make a decision. The road of life is paved with flat squirrels who couldn’t make a decision.


Put up with it and you will get more of it.

--Lynne Deal

It is the greatest good to the greatest number which is the measure of right and wrong.

--Jeremy Bentham

Never make a decision yourself, if you don’t have to. When one of your men asks you a question, ask him what is the answer. There is only one answer to many questions, and, therefore, this method answers many questions before they are asked. It not only develops your men, but also enables you to measure their ability.

--Henry L. Doherty

Treat people as if they were what they ought to be and you help them to become what they are capable of being.

--Johann W. van Goethe

If a better system is thine, impart it; if not, make use of mine.


No sensible decision can be made any longer without taking into account not only the world as it is, but the world as it will be.

--Isaac Asimov

When traveling in unfamiliar territory, explorers frequently consult their compasses to ensure they have not lost their way or are not headed in a direction away from their destination. The value of a compass is that it defines one direction—north. All other directions can be determined and selected or rejected based on this knowledge. As educators, we also need to consult our professional compass. Rather than showing north, our compass needs to point directly at helping students learn. Every issue, every decision, and every expenditure of an organizational resource—human or financial—must be judged on its consistency with the point of our compass. If we are clear and consistent in our pursuit of and support for student learning, we can monitor our direction and adjust our course with relative ease. Like explorers, we need to frequently consult our compass and adjust our course accordingly. However, our compass is not something we can carry in our pocket. We must keep it in our hearts and minds.

--The Master Teacher

Things do not get better by being left alone. Unless they are adjusted, they explode with a shattering detonation.

--Sir Winston Churchill

The best executive is the one who has sense enough to pick good people to do what he wants done, and self-restraint enough to keep from meddling with them while they do it.

--Theodore Roosevelt

Nothing that is not a real crime makes a man appear so contemptible and little in the eyes of the world as inconsistency.

--Joseph Addison

Much worse than training teachers and losing them is not training them and keeping them.

--Harry Wong
