Pfeffer, J., & Sutton R. I. (2013).  Hard Facts, Dangerous Half-Truths, and Total Nonsense: Profiting from Evidence-based Management. 274. Abstract
"As Dennis Bakke reminds us in his book Joy at Work, life is not just about performance, effectiveness, and efficiency.1 The very essence of being a sentient human being is the ability to make choices and take actions—to be responsible, in control of at least some aspects of our own life, and engaged in actively creating the world in which we live. To cede those tasks to others, even others who are benign and possibly wiser than us, is to deny the full experience of being fully human and alive." (p. 199)
[Anonymous] (1995).  Hard Landing.
Levinson, H. (2006).  Harry Levinson on the Psychology of Leadership.
"When people in defeat deny their angry feelings, that denial of underlying, seething anger contributes to the sense of burnout.
If top executives fail to see these problems as serious, they may worsen the situation. If a company offers only palliatives like meditation and relaxation methods—temporarily helpful though they may be—victims of burnout may become further enraged. The sufferers know that their problem has to do with the nature of the job and not their capacity to handle it." (p. 29)
Whyte, D. (1996).  The Heart Aroused : Poetry and the Preservation of the Soul in Corporate America.
"Corporations, for their part, have been engaged in a willful battle against the very grain of existence. Like the good Dutch boy with his finger in the dike, they have spent enormous amounts of energy putting in place systems that attempt to hold back the shifting, oceanic qualities of existence. The complexity of the world could be accounted for, they fervently hoped, by a simple increase in the thickness of the company manual." (p. 10)
Fromm, E. (1968).  The Heart of Man: Its Genius for Good and Evil.
"The very need to achieve something creative makes it necessary to leave the closed circle of group solipsism and to be interested in the object it wants to achieve." (p. 94)
Zukav, G., & Francis L. (2002).  The Heart of the Soul: Emotional Awareness.
"Boredom is the failure of the search for external fulfillment and refusal to look at what drove the search. Boredom is deep-rooted resistance to experiencing emotions after all efforts to distract attention from them have been ineffective. The root of boredom is resistance to painful emotions. This is the root of workaholism and perfectionism, also. In some cases the root produces boredom first, and then an escape into workaholism or perfectionism. In other cases, the workaholism or perfectionism comes first, and then boredom." (p. 193)
Carter, R. W., & Golant S. K. (1999).  Helping Someone with Mental Illness.
"Work fulfills many needs. It creates structure and meaning in our lives, gives us a sense of accomplishment, provides income and security, and also affords us the chance to socialize with friends and colleagues and to feel as if we belong to a community." (p. 102)
Kolb, D. M., Williams J., Frohlinger C., & Kolb D. (2010).  Her Place at the Table: A Woman's Guide to Negotiating Five Key Challenges to Leadership Success.
"To our surprise, many of our informants reported having troubled relationships with key leaders. From their perspective, these leaders were difficult and had earned their reputations for psychologically abusive behaviors. To work with them they had to make clear—right from the start—the kind of treatment they expected (and would tolerate)." (p. 79)
Potash, M. (1990).  Hidden Agendas.
"A psychological contract and a relationship that works for both parties is flexible enough to accomodate both shattered illusions and changing circumstances. However, that flexibility is not easy to come by and most of us at least initially resist altering our expectations in any way. Instead, we become all the more determined to make the other person or the relationship measure up to our standards." (p 147)
Nair, K. (1997).  A higher standard of leadership: lessons from the life of Gandhi.
"As a bear a great responsibility. If you set the direction, analysis and support will appear throughout the organization even if you are wrong. Those who are not in positions of power will find it difficult to disagree—to be truthful—because they fear for their careers and their futures." (p. 113)
Bloomfield, H. H., & Cooper R. K. (1997).  How to Be Safe in an Unsafe World : A Guide to Inner Peace and Outer Security.
"If your intention is to creatively resolve everyday clashes that occur at home, on the street, or in the workplace, a willingness to understand the other side is essential. Remember, your goal in many situations is not to win arguments, not to prove your point; your goal is to be and feel safe." (p. 78)
Ellis, A., & Lange A. (1994).  How to Keep People From Pushing Your Buttons.
"Sometimes we get terribly bent out of shape when someone treats us insensitively, manipulates us, takes advantage, or is downright unfair. Therefore, we are not suggesting that if you are treated unfairly, you roll over and say 'Hit me again, baby. Beat me to a pulp' or 'Well—ha, ha—nobody's perfect. Maybe they didn't mean it.' You can still decide to do everything possible to redress injustices and unfairness, whether they be personal or social, without overrreacting and becoming part of the problem." (p. 72)
