Words of Wisdom on Employees

Over the years, I've had the privilege of observing many successful leaders execute a variety of strategies in their quest for success. The most effective tactic I have ever witnessed is the simple and constant application of expectations, accountability, and consequences!
~ Harry K. Jones, professional speaker and consultant

Start with good people, lay out the rules, communicate with your employees, motivate them, and reward them. If you do all those things effectively, you can't miss.
~ Lee Iacocca, Chrysler Corp.

I don't think I'm the primary motivator. I give people license to be themselves and motivate others in that way. We give people the opportunity to be a maverick. You don't have to fit into a constraining mold at work―you can have a good time.
~ Herb Kelleher, Chairman, Southwest Airlines

Executives owe it to the organization and to their fellow workers not to tolerate nonperforming individuals.
~ Peter Drucker

Numerous motivational studies show that employees typically place a high value on getting information about their job, their performance and how the company is doing.
~ Bob Nelson, author of 1001 Ways to Motivate Employees

When was the last time you asked your employees if they have the right level of challenge in their work?
~ Alex Hiam, author

Stars radiate light. Black holes absorb energy. We need to invest in our stars―not our black holes!
~ Unknown

The character and qualifications of the leader are reflected in the men he selects, develops and gathers around him. Show me the leader and I will know his men. Show me the men and I will know their leader. Therefore, to have loyal, efficient employees, be a loyal and efficient employer.
~ Arthur W. Newcomb

Research indicates that workers have three prime needs: Interesting work, recognition for doing a good job, and being let in on things that are going on in the company.
~ Zig Ziglar

A great employee who is poorly managed is no better than a poor employee who is managed well.
~ Peter Drucker

Treat a man as he is, and he will remain as he is. Treat a man as he should be, and he will become what he could be.”
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Which horses win races―those the jockey whips the hardest, or the ones who enjoy running the most?
~ Unknown

Employees tend to live up to their manager's expectations of them. If a manager's expectations are high, productivity is likely to be excellent.
~ Unknown
