Reichheld, F. F., & Teal T. (1996).  The Loyalty Effect : The Hidden Force Behind Growth, Profits, & Lasting Value.
"Loyalty is indeed a two-way street, and companies that dump people when earnings are down (much less when earnings are up) are sowing the seeds of their own failure. Every company falls on hard times now and then, and it's the loyal dedication of key employees that pulls most of them through. By showing people that the company won't stick by them in adversity, a firm can almost guarantee that the next time it's in trouble, its most talented employees will jump ship just when they're needed most." (p. 96)
Tivnan, E. (1995).  Moral Imagination.
"It is this imagination of what it is like to be humiliated, oppressed, or treated cruelly that can provide the bridge between us and our moral enemies. While we know when we are being treated cruelly or have been humiliated, it is not always so easy to recognize our cruelty to others, nor how such cruelty has affected their lives." (p. 257)
Thomas, M. (1998).  A New Attitude: Achieve Personal and Professional Success by Keeping a Positive Mental Outlook. A New Attitude.
"Research shows that people in the lower echelons of their companies are more susceptible to stress and its negative effects than those at the top. Employees on the lower rungs of the corporate ladder often have high-demand jobs and little control." (p. 99)
Kepner, C. H., & Tregoe B. B. (1981).  The New Rational Manager.
In human performance problems, assessing consequences is an attempt to protect an employee's future against unintended harm....Actions affecting human beings have multiple consequences—some good, some harmful. Fairness requires that at least any unintended effects be assessed. The organization should not decide for the employee how life in the future should be lived; rather, it must be aware of how today's decisions affect tomorrow's conditions." (p. 198)
Toffler, A. (1983).  Previews & Premises: an interview with the author of Future Shock and The Third Wave.
"In Third Wave industries, the talk is all about employee participation in decision-making; about job enlargement and enrichment, instead of fractionalization; about flex-time instead of rigid hours; about cafeteria-style fringe benefits which give employees a choice, rather than a fait accompli; about how to encourage creativity rather than blind obedience." (p. 31)
Taylor, F. W. (1967).  The Principles of Scientific Management.
"The knowledge obtained from accurate time study, for example, is a powerful implement, and can be used, in one case to promote harmony between workmen and the management, by gradually educating, training, and leading the workmen into new and better methods of doing work, or, in the other case, it may be used more or less as a club to drive the workmen into doing a larger day's work for approximately the same pay that they had received in the past." (p. 134)
Hirschorn, L. (1993).  The Psychodynamics of Organizations. (Howell S. Baum, Eric L. Trist, James Krantz, Carole K. Barnett, Steven P. Feldman, Thomas N. Gilmore, Laurence J. Gould, Larry Hirschorn, Manfred F.R. KetsDeVries, Laurent Lapierre, Howard S. Schwartz, Glenn Swogger, David A. Thomas, Donald R. Young, Abraham Zaleznik, Michael A. Diamond, Ed.).
"A wide variety of approaches that guide investigation of organizational life have openly and strongly challenged the assumption that organizations behave as rational systems." (p. xiv)
Trompenaars, A., & Hampden-Turner C. (1998).  Riding the waves of culture : understanding cultural diversity in global business.
"In the original American concept of internal and external sources of control, the implication is that the outer-directed person is offering an excuse for failure rather than a new wisdom. In other nations it is not seen as personal weakness to acknowledge the strength of external forces or the arbitrariness of events." (p. 149)
Trump, D., & Schwartz T. (2005).  Trump: The Art of the Deal. Ballantine Books.
"Most people are surprised by the way I work. I play it very loose. I don't carry a briefcase. I try not to schedule too many meetings. I leave my door open. You can't be imaginative or entrepreneurial if you've got too much structure. I prefer to come to work each day and just see what develops."
Trevor, W. (1992).  Two Lives.
Cantor, D., & Thompson A. (2001).  What Do You Want to Do When You Grow Up?: Starting the Next Chapter of Your Life.
"Job burnout, write Maslach and Goldberg, with its feelings of frustration, ineffectiveness, or failure, is 'a particularly tragic endpoint for professionals who entered the job with positive expectations [and] enthusiasm.'" (p. 56)
