CEO Blog Nation | 41 Entrepreneurs Share Their Favorite Business Quotes
André Gide wrote that,”Everything that needs to be said has already been said. But since no one was listening, everything must be said again.” Quotes are an important part of motivation, though many of them are repeats of another turn of phrase. Business owners are particularly partial to famous quotations. Reading a motivational speech from a business legend or famous creative mind can give you a spark. It doesn’t matter if it has been said before and repeated numerous times, quotes can give you the fire you need to be a better entrepreneur or learn how to handle a difficult situation.
Check out the quote from Roger Franklin, CEO of Crystal:
#35 – Culture Rules
Culture eats strategy for breakfast.
“All business, ultimately, involves people working together to solve a problem or provide a service. Interpersonal relationships, even those that last only a few seconds, is where business takes place – both internally and with our customers. How we treat other people and how we make decisions are direct results of the culture within our business. Culture provides the framework within which we design strategies and execute plans, and problems arise when our employees or customers don’t understand or accept that culture.”
