Management Quotations

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

John C. Maxwell

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.
Marilu Henner
