Management Quotes

Washerman's Donkey: A Management moral story...

Once upon a time a Washerman was bringing up two donkeys. Let us say Donkey-A and Donkey-B.

Donkey-A felt it was very energetic and could do better than the other. It always tried to pull the washerman's attraction over it by taking more load and walking fast in front of him.

Innocent Donkey-B is normal, so it will walk normal, irrespective of the washerman's presence.

After a period of time, Washerman started pressurizing Donkey-B to be like Donkey-A. But Donkey-B unable to walk fast, got continuous punishment from washerman. 

It was crying and told personally to Donkey-A "Dear friend, only we two are here, why to compete with each other. We can carry equal load at normal speed." 

That made Donkey-A all the more energetic and next day it told to washerman that it can carry more load and even it can run fast too.

Obviously happier washerman looked at Donkey-B, his BP raised and he started kicking Donkey-B.

Next day with smile, Donkey-A carried more load and started running fast. But it was breathtaking for Donkey-B and it couldn't act that way. But the washerman was frustrated, so he harassed Donkey-B terribly, and finally it fell down hopelessly. 

Then Donkey-A felt itself as a supremo and happily started carrying more load with great speed. But now the load of the Donkey-B is also being carried by Donkey-A., and still it has to run fast.

For some period it did, finally due to fatigue it got tired and started feeling the pain. But washerman expected more from Donkey-A. It also tried best, but couldn't cope up with his owners demand. The Washerman got angry with Donkey-A also and started harassing to take more load. Donkey-A was crying for long time and then tried its best. But it couldn't meet the owner's satisfaction.

Finally the day came when due to frustration the washerman killed Donkey-A and went for searching some other donkeys. Its an endless story.

The moral of the story in Corporate life is:

"Think all colleague are same and that everyone is equally capable. Always share the Load equally. Don't ever act smart in front of your Boss and never try for getting over-credit. Don't feel happy when your colleague is under pressure." And most importantly, Never Work Hard, Work Cleverly. "Success is a journey not a destination!"

A HR Management Story with Moral...
"The Goat And The Horse"!!!
There was a farmer who had a horse and a goat…..
One day, the horse became ill and he called the veterinarian,
who said:
- Well, your horse has a virus.
He must take this medicine for three days.
I'll come back on the 3rd day and if he's not better,
we're going to have to put him down.
Nearby, the goat listened closely to their conversation.
The next day, they gave him the medicine and left.
The goat approached the horse and said:
- Be strong, my friend.
Get up or else they're going to put you to sleep!
On the second day, they gave him the medicine and left.
The goat came back and said:
- Come on buddy, get up or else you're going to die!
Come on, I'll help you get up.
Let's go! One, two, three...
On the third day, they came to give him the medicine
and the vet said:
- Unfortunately, we're going to have to put him down tomorrow.
Otherwise, the virus might spread and infect the other horses.
After they left, the goat approached the horse and said:
- Listen pal, it's now or never!
Get up, come on! Have courage!
Come on! Get up! Get up!
That's it, slowly! Great!
Come on, one, two, three... Good, good.
Now faster, come on...... Fantastic! Run, run more!
Yes! Yay! Yes! You did it, you're a champion!!!
All of a sudden, the owner came back,
saw the horse running in the
field and began shouting:
- It's a miracle! My horse is cured.
We must have a grand party.
Let's kill the goat!!!!
The Lesson : this often happens in the workplace.
Nobody truly knows which employee actually deserves
the merit of success,
or who's actually contributing the necessary support
to make things happen.
If anyone ever tells you that your work
is unprofessional, remember:
Amateurs built the Ark
[which saved all the species]
professionals built the Titanic
[all died tragically]... Good Night.

Effective leadership is putting first things first. 

Effective management is discipline, carrying it out.

BY    Stephen Covey 

Management is doing things right; 
leadership is doing the right things.

Being in control of your life and having realistic 
expectations about your day-to-day challenges are
 the keys to stress management, which is perhaps 
the most important ingredient to living a happy, 
healthy and rewarding life.
BY Marilu Henner

Most of what we call management consists of making it difficult for people to get their work done.
Peter Drucker 

When a management with a reputation for brilliance 
tackles a business with a reputation for bad economics, 
it is the reputation of the business that remains intact.
Warren Buffett

Employees who believe that management is concerned about them as a whole person - not just an employee - are more productive, more satisfied, more fulfilled. Satisfied employees mean satisfied customers, which leads to profitability.
Anne M. Mulcahy
