all the years and in everything we do, we have focused most of all on the development
of human capacity, beginning with our own professional staff, and leveraging their
expertise to enrich the Arab community. We have embraced the concept of the knowledge
worker and have sought to empower our people and the Arab worlds people
to dream, to imagine, and to create.
Abu-Ghazaleh - Focus

We call ourselves a capacity building organization; self-motivated
and self-initiated capacity building. For example, in 30 years, I dont think
I have signed a check for the company.
Abu-Ghazaleh - Employee
You know what they want? They want obedient
workers. Obedient workers, people who are
just smart enough to run the machines and
do the paperwork. And just dumb enough to
passively accept all these increasingly
shittier jobs with the lower pay, the longer
hours, the reduced benefits, the end of
overtime and vanishing pension that disappears
the minute you go to collect it. And now
theyre coming for your Social Security
money. They want your f**kin' retirement
money. They want it back so they can give
it to their criminal friends on Wall Street.
Carlin - Big
Business - Stupid
The resentment that criticism engenders
can demoralize employees, family members
and friends, and still not correct the situation
that has been condemned.
Carnegie - Criticism
The corporation is the “master”, the employee is the “servant”. Because
the corporation owns the means of production without which the employee could
not make a living, the employee needs the corporation more than vice versa.
Executives owe it to the organization and to their fellow workers not to
tolerate nonperforming individuals in important jobs.
Drucker - Leadership
- Work -
If your thinking is sloppy, your business will be sloppy. If you are disorganized,
your business will be disorganized. If you are greedy, your empoyees will be greedy,
giving you less and less of themselves and always asking for more.
Gerber - Business
The concept of social inclusion in essence
means replacing a welfarist approach to
helping the underprivileged with one of
investing in them and their communities
to bring them into the mainstream market
economy. Its a modern and fresh approach
that views everyone as a potential wealth
creator and invests in their human capital.
My reason for adopting such an approach
is simple: at a time when Australia needs
more skilled people and has an ageing population,
we simply cant afford to have one
in ten or more of our people out of the
workforce due to unemployment, low skills
or the effects of chronic poverty. Social
inclusion is an economic imperative.
Gillard - Social
In the early days, I didnt have the
money to pay decent salaries, so I didnt
get good people. I got nice people, but
I didnt get good employees.
Hay - Money
The company was quite hierarchical. I often
think it was like a pyramid with Robert
Robert Holmes à Court) at
the top and lots of us paying homage to
him. I try to turn the pyramid upside down
so that I'm at the bottom and bubbling away
and encouraging people and energising them
so that they are all empowered so that they
can do what they need to do, now that's
Holmes a Court - Encouragement
The faster we grew, the more stores we had open, the more money we made.
Employees move quickly up the ranks of a company that's growing fast. Shareholders
made a lot of money. If you invested $25,000 from January 1987 to January 1994,
you'd have more than a million dollars. I get a lot of personal satisfaction from
Huizenga - Growth
I'm going to miss Blockbuster. I'm gonna miss being CEO and all that stuff.
We had an atmosphere where everybody was happy. When people make money, they're
Huizenga - Employee
The people who are doing the work are the
moving force behind the Macintosh. My job
is to create a space for them, to clear
out the rest of the organization and keep
it at bay.
Jobs - Work
I want my legacy to be greater freedom,
greater prosperity and a better way of life
for my family, our employees and all Americans.
And I wish the same for every nation on
Koch - America
We have the best leaders and the most depth
of leadership weve ever had. If I
get hit by a truck, maybe it would get me
out of the way and it would go better.
Koch - Management
We strive to hire and retain only those
who embrace our MBM® Guiding Principles,
which encompass integrity, compliance, value
creation, Principled Entrepreneurship, customer
focus, knowledge, change, humility, respect
Koch - Management
We needed to be uncompromising with our
workforce, to expect 100 percent of our
employees to comply 100 percent of the time
with complex and ever-changing government
mandates. Striving to comply with every
law does not mean agreeing with every law.
But, even when faced with laws we think
are counter-productive, we must first comply.
Only then, from a credible position, can
we enter into a dialogue with regulatory
agencies to demonstrate alternatives that
are more beneficial. If these efforts fail,
we can then join with others in using education
and/or political efforts to change the law.
Koch - Laws
We try to evaluate how much value an employee
is creating here and reward them accordingly.
Koch - Employee
When you consider that a steelworker whos
making $40,000 a year has virtually the
same tax burden as someone whos making
$400,000 a year, you see that there are
inequities. This administration has used
the tax code to accelerate wealth to the
top. Most of the tax breaks have gone to
people in the top bracket.
Kucinich - Republican
Class - Unfair
I always took my role as a leader, and certainly
chairman and CEO of a major company very
seriously as to our employees and trying
to create opportunities for them and create
opportunities where they could even, as
I said many times, could realize their God-given
potential and maybe realize more potential
than even they realize they had.
Lay - God
In financing growing companies, we always
looked for human value that didnt
appear on the balance sheet.. the quality
of management, especially its entrepreneurial
Milken - Investing
The profit motive is not only fundamental
to our ability to reward shareholders and
pay employees; it's fundamental to excellent
journalism. Far from corrupting the craft,
profits enhance it. Expansion drives diversity
and diversity protects and strengthens our
Murdoch - Growth
The buck stops with me, but I can tick off
dozens of very good senior executives that

Our mission statement about treating people with respect and dignity is not
just words but a creed we live by every day. You can't expect your employees to

Schultz - Respect
I grew up in a working class family where there was no health insurance.
I saw first hand the fracturing of the American dream and the bitterness that
comes when there is no hope and a lot of despair. So I wanted to build the company,
in a sense, that my father never got a chance to work for.

attributes: an unbridled level of confidence
about where their organizations are headed,
and the ability to bring people along.

who can interpret and execute our mission,
who want to build a career, not just take
a temporary job.
Schultz - Employee
Hiring people is an art, not a science,
and resumes can't tell you whether someone
will fit into a company's culture. When
you realize you've made a mistake, you need
to cut your losses and move on.
Schultz - Employee
It's ironic that retailers and restaurants
live or die on customer service, yet their
employees have some of the lowest pay and
worst benefits of any industry. That's one
reason so many retail experiences are mediocre
for the public.
Schultz - Earnings

never, ever burn his audience.
Stern - Employee
When employees and employers, even coworkers,
have a commitment to one another, everyone
benefits. I have people who have been in
business with me for decades. I reward their
loyalty to the organization and to me. I
know that they'll always be dedicated to
what we're trying to accomplish.
Trump - Business
I pay low wages. I can take advantage of
that. We're going to be successful, but
the basis is a very low-wage, low-benefit
model of employment.
Walton - Wage
I have never left the company. I keep a
tiny residual salary to this day because
that's where my loyalty should be forever.
I want to be an "employee" on
the company data base. I won't engineer,
I'd rather be basically retired, due to
my family. (talking about his relationship
with Apple Inc)
Wozniak - Employee
Interest rates are going to go up because
employment is going to go up. If employment
goes up, then our apartments get filled.
And if employment goes up, our office buildings
get filled. The reality is that increased
economic activity combined with increased
interest rates is basically bullish for
