I’ve heard so many management quotes over the years. I think about them even when I’m at the gym, because it’s like I’m in an arena with so many people trying to compete with each other. I usually cringe when I see some of them, because it implies that the people on the other side of the arena are doing something wrong. They’re in a position where they’re trying to get ahead of the pack.
The only way to get ahead of the pack is to be good. And that can take a lot of work and skill. So that said, management quotes are ones that make you look like a jerk when you hear them. But we should all be striving to improve our management skills as much as we can because as we get older and grow older, we realize that being good is a lot harder than it was a few years ago.
I’m not just talking about management quotes in the office. I’m talking about management quotes on the job. My dad has a rule: “Management quotes on the job are bad.” Well, that’s not so bad. He can still say them. He just might not say them in front of a bunch of people.
I have two managers I have told not to use bad management quotes. The first one said one, the second one said two. I told them that two is better than one and if I ever work for the same company, I will keep that rule, so they can’t use bad management quotes again.
Yes, we can all agree that bad management quotes are bad. The problem is that most of us are very bad managers. In fact, most of us have bad managers because we are bad at the art of management. We don’t get it. Most of us are just bad at it. I’m not talking about what we say or do in front of people. I’m talking about the quotes that we say or do to ourselves.
You see, there are two distinct ways that bad management quotes can appear in a sentence. The first is a passive one, and the second is an active one. The passive one is when a bad manager is saying or doing something that is not really bad, and this is generally a bad thing to say. The active one is when a bad manager is doing something that is really bad and is not really something a manager should be doing.
The passive one. A passive manager thinks that something is not a problem, and that the manager is doing something to help. For example, “I have a bad credit score and I might be able to get a loan”. This is passive management. The active management is when a manager is actually doing something which is actually a bad thing. For example, “I am a manager, and I have a bad reputation”. This is active management.
The passive is bad management and the active is good management. Here are some typical examples of passive management: If I am not doing anything wrong, then I am doing something wrong.
Passive management is the easiest kind of management and the hardest to spot. The real problem with passive management is that it is not actually wrong. It is, in fact, beneficial. For example, you can improve your credit score without doing anything wrong. When you apply for a loan, the bank will verify that you are eligible for a loan, and then they will give you the loan, based on their own assessment of your credit.
But, you are not doing anything wrong, you are just passing up the opportunity to get a loan. You might be doing things that might be considered irresponsible or lazy, but when you are doing things that are not actually wrong, you are not doing anything wrong.
