Tennant, D. (2007).  Do You Exist?. Computerworld.
"You can no longer expect your professional standing to progress if you dont have an easily accessible, broadly informative presence on the Web. And while that virtual existence is essential in itself, it's not enough. You have to contribute something..."
Carlson, R. (2005).  Don't Sweat the Small Stuff...And It's All Small Stuff: Simple Things To Keep The Little Things From Taking Over Your Life.
"At times you are going to use bad judgement, say something wrong, offend someone, criticize unnecessarily, be too demanding, or act selfishly. The question isn't whether you will make these mistakes—we all do. The question is, Can you admit to them?" (p. 187)
McDowell, R. L., & Simon W. L. (2001).  Driving Digital: Microsoft and Its Customers Speak About Thriving in the E-Business Era.
"If you think about the traditional corporate structure, what determines who's going to be a part of the debate? Simple: the people who are allowed in the meeting room." (p. 78)
"Two issues: Can your senior executive group adjust to a culture in which folks at the most junior levels of the organization have access to all but the most highly sensitive information about the company? And can they adjust to a culture in which they will receive e-mails from those same junior level folks? Will they be open and responsive to those e-mails? Are the managers at levels between the junior sender and senior executive who receives the e-mail going to revolt at not being consulted before the message gets sent, probably not even cc'ed?" (p. 84)
Bonhoeffer, D. (1962).  Letters and papers from prison. (Bethge, Eberhard, Ed.).
"We have been the silent witnesses of evil deeds. Many storms have gone over our heads. We have learned the art of deception and of equivocal speech. Experience has made us suspicious of others, and prevented us from being open and frank. Bitter conflicts have made us weary and even cynical. Are we still serviceable? It is not the genius that we shall need, not the misanthropist, not the adroit tactician, but honest, straightforward men. Will our spiritual reserves prove adequate and our candor with ourselves remorseless enough to enable us to find our way back again to simplicity and straightforwardness?" (p. 34)
Shechtman, M. R. (1995).  Working Without a Net.
"Self-disclosers explain to others who they are, not just what they do. No one builds relationships unless they reveal more than job-related facts. Contrary to the old paradigm—which held that others don't have the right to know about your personal life—the new paradigm says that it's a necessity that they know." (p. 71)
