Dickerson’s management moment: Stay focused on the future, but don’t forget to learn lessons from the past

Power Point: So much of what we call management consists in making it difficult for people to work.
ó Peter Drucker
Power Thought: Management should never be an obstacle to success; but rather a conduit for it. Top-heavy management can stifle productivity, drain morale, and hinder progress. When management gets out of the way, trusts its people, the possibilities for success are unlimited. When you allow the team to succeed they will not disappoint you.
ó Doug Dickerson
Power Surge: A good manager is a man who isn’t worried about his own career, but rather, the careers of those who work for him. Take care of those who work for you and you’ll float to greatness on their achievements.
ó H.S. M. Burns
