Quote of the Day
A manager is not a person who can do the work better than his men; he is a person who can get his men to do the work better than he can.
Frederick W. Smith
My manager is definitely a mentor as well as Usher.
The prevailing - and foolish - attitude is that a good manager can be a good manager anywhere, with no special knowledge of the production process he's managing. A man with a financial background may know nothing about manufacturing shoes or cars, but he's put in charge anyway.
W. Edwards Deming
As a goalkeeper you need to be good at organising the people in front of you and motivating them. You need to see what's going on and react to the threats. Just like a good manager in business.
A leader is the one who can outline the broad vision and the direction, and say here's where we are going to go, here's why we need to go there, and here's how we are going to get there. A manager is the one who actually gets up under the hood and tunes the carburetor.

The manager accepts the status quo; the leader challenges it.
The key to being a good manager is keeping the people who hate me away from those who are still undecided.
I was taught you never, ever disrespect your opponent or your teammates or your organization or your manager and never, ever your uniform.
A series of rumors about my attitude, as well as derogatory remarks about myself and my family showed me that the personal resentment of the Detroit general manager toward me would make it impossible for me to continue playing hockey in Detroit.
Decisiveness is the one word that makes a good manager.
The true genius of a great manager is his or her ability to individualize. A great manager is one who understands how to trip each person's trigger.
The true measure of the value of any business leader and manager is performance.
After one look at this planet any visitor from outer space would say 'I want to see the manager.'
William S. Burroughs
Whether you are a writer or an actor or a stage manager, you are trying to express the complications of life through a shared enterprise. That's what theatre was, always. And live performance shares that with an audience in a specific compact: the play is unfinished unless it has an audience, and they are as important as everyone else.
It will be disastrous when a leader or manager shows up with one attitude one day and treats people with a different attitude the next day.

I still start to get panicky each morning before I go on television. I'll say, 'I'm in awful shape, something is wrong,' and if I start to look like I'm going off the deep end, Jimmy Straka, the stage manager, will say, 'You're all right. Calm down.' Then Bryant Gumbel will grab me by the leg or something.
