There is a misconception that supportive
interactions require more staff or more time and
are therefore more costly. Although labor costs
are a substantial part of any hospital budget,
the interactions themselves add nothing to the
budget. Kindness is free. Listening to patients
or answering their questions costs nothing. It
can be argued that negative interactionsalienatin
g patients, being non-responsive to their needs
or limiting their sense of controlcan be very
costly. Angry, frustrated or frightened
patients may be combative, withdrawn and less
cooperativerequiring far more time than it
would have taken to interact with them initially
in a positive way. Putting Patients First,

Tom let me tell you the definition of a good
lending officer. After church on Sunday, on the
way home with his family, he takes a little
detour to drive by the factory he just lent money
to. Doesnt go in or any such thing, just drives
by and takes a look.

"We all start out in life loving our fathers and
mothers above everything else in the world, but
that does not close the doors of love. That
prepares us to love our wives and husbands and
children and friends and to cooperate with and
show respect to all worthy individuals with whom
we come in contact or have an opportunity to
reach in other ways. We must apply that to
nations and to other businesses. "We in IBM
must not confine our thoughts just to IBM. We
must extend our cooperation to all other
businesses whether we do business with them or
not. We are one cog in the industrial wheel.
"Then as citizens we must extend our respect to
all worthy people in all nations. We are moving
along in troublesome times, but the love of these
various things of which I have spoken and of the
people in whom we are interested is going to be
the great force which will make us all appreciate
the spiritual values which constitute the only
solid foundation on which we can build."

Managers have lost dignity over the past decade
in the face of widespread institutional breakdown
of trust and self-policing in business. To regain
societys trust, we believe that business leaders
must embrace a way of looking at their role that
goes beyond their responsibility to the
shareholders to include a civic and personal
commitment to their duty as institutional
custodians. In other words, it is time hat
management became a profession. Rakesh Khurana

True Profession, HBR/10.08

You have to treat your employees like
customers. Herb Kelleher, complete answer, upon
being asked his secrets to success Source
Joe Nocera, NYT, Parting Words of an Airline
Pioneer, on the occasion of Herb Kellehers
retirement after 37 years at Southwest Airlines

USA Today thanking HK for all he had done across

The Dream Manager Matthew KellyAn
organization can only become the-best-version-of-i
tself to the extent that the people who drive
that organization are striving to become
better-versions-of-themselves. A companys
purpose is to become the-best-version-of-itself.
The question is What is an employees purpose?
Most would say, to help the company achieve its
purposebut they would be wrong. That is
certainly part of the employees role, but an
employees primary purpose is to become
the-best-version-of-himself or herself. When a
company forgets that it exists to serve
customers, it quickly goes out of business. Our
employees are our first customers, and our most
important customers.
The four most important words in any
organization are What do you think?

This is so simple it sounds stupid, but it is
amazing how few oil people really understand that
you only find oil if you drill wells. You may
think youre finding it when youre drawing maps
and studying logs, but you have to drill.

We have a strategic plan. Its called doing
things. Herb Kelleher
We made mistakes, of course. Most of them were
omissions we didnt think of when we initially
wrote the software. We fixed them by doing it
over and over, again and again. We do the same
today. While our competitors are still sucking
their thumbs trying to make the design perfect,
were already on prototype version 5. By the
time our rivals are ready with wires and screws,
we are on version 10. It gets back to planning
versus acting We act from day one others plan
how to planfor months. Bloomberg by Bloomberg

Give good tea!
Allied commands depend on mutual confidence
and this confidence is gained, above all
through the development of friendships.
General D.D. Eisenhower, Armchair General
(05.08)Perhaps his most outstanding ability
at West Point was the ease with which he made
friends and earned the trust of fellow cadets
who came from widely varied backgrounds it was
a quality that would pay great dividends during
his future coalition command.

Avrakotos strategy He had become a legend
with the people who manned the underbelly of the
Agency CIA.
