All-time Quotes by Abdul Kalam
All-time Quotes by Abdul Kalam The crux of his life in his very own words: “My story—the story of the son of Jainulabdeen, who lived for over a hundred years on Mosque Street in Rameswaram island and died there; the story of a lad who sold newspapers to help his brother; The story of a pupil reared by Sivasubramania Iyer and Iyadurai Solomon; the story of a student taught by teachers like Pandalai; the story of an engineer spotted by MGK Menon and groomed by the legendary Prof. Sarabhai; The story of a scientist tested by failures and setbacks; the story of a leader supported by a large team of brilliant and dedicated professionals. This story will end with me, for I have no belongings in the worldly sense. I have acquired nothing, built nothing, possess nothing—no family, sons, daughters.” Some very unique and inspiring quotes by the great man: 1. “All birds find shelter during a rain .

Top 50 Popular Quotes from Management Gurus Strategy Quotes from Michael Porter  Strategy is about making choices, trade-offs; it’s about deliberately choosing to be different.” “The underlying principles of strategy are enduring, regardless of technology or the pace of change.” “The essence of strategy is that you must set limits on what you’re trying to accomplish.” “The essence of strategy is choosing what not to do.” “The chief strategist of an organization has to be the leader – the ceo.” “If all you’re trying to do is essentially the same thing as your rivals, then it’s unlikely that you’ll be very successful.” “Finally, strategy must have continuity. It can’t be constantly reinvented.” “Innovation is the central issue in economic prosperity.” “Sound strategy starts with having the right goal.” “So companies have to be very schizophrenic. On one hand, they have to maintain continuity of strategy. But they also have to be good at continuously improving.” 50 MIND BLOWING STRATEGIC MANAGEMENT QUOTES Stephen Covey Leadership Quotes from Stephen Covey  “Effective leadership is putting first things first. Effective management is discipline, carrying it out.” “There are three constants in life… Change, choice and principles.” Every human has four endowments- self awareness, conscience, independent will and creative imagination. These give us the ultimate human freedom… The power to choose, to respond, to change.” “The main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing.” “We are not animals. We are not a product of what has happened to us in our past. We have the power of choice.” “Management is efficiency in climbing the ladder of success; leadership determines whether the ladder is leaning against the right wall.” “The key is not to prioritize what’s on your schedule, but to schedule your priorities.” “Public behavior is merely private character writ large.” “When you really listen to another person from their point of view, and reflect back to them that understanding, it’s like giving them emotional oxygen.” “Trust is the glue of life. It’s the most essential ingredient in effective communication. It’s the foundational principle that holds all relationships.” Daniel Goleman Emotional Intelligence Quotes from Daniel Goleman “Emotional intelligence begins to develop in the earliest years. All the small exchanges children have with their parents, teachers, and with each other carry emotional messages.” “Well, any effort to maximize your potential and ability is a good thing.” “Teachers need to be comfortable talking about feelings.” “There is zero correlation between iq and emotional empathy… They’re controlled by different parts of the brain.” “People tend to become more emotionally intelligent as they age and mature.” “Mindful meditation has been discovered to foster the ability to inhibit those very quick emotional impulses.” “If your emotional abilities aren’t in hand, if you don’t have self-awareness, if you are not able to manage your distressing emotions, if you can’t have empathy and have effective relationships, then no matter how smart you are, you are not going to get very far.” “the emotional brain responds to an event more quickly than the thinking brain.” But once you are in that field, emotional intelligence emerges as a much stronger predictor of who will be most successful, because it is how we handle ourselves in our relationships that determines how well we do once we are in a given job.” “My hope was that organizations would start including this range of skills in their training programs – in other words, offer an adult education in social and emotional intelligence.” Productivity Quotes from Ken Blanchard “The productivity of a work group seems to depend on how the group members see their own goals in relation to the goals of the organization.” “For...
