Mckinsey Quotes By Rebecca McKinsey

Sydney tried - sometimes he really tried - but his default mindset didn't have those kinds of manners. What he really meant was more like "Jacob, get over here or I'll freeze your underwear." Something like that. — Rebecca McKinsey

Mckinsey Quotes By Sheryl Sandberg

Larry said he could understand the complaint, but what he did not understand was that all the people who quit - every single one - had unused vacation time. Up until the day they left, they did everything McKinsey asked of them before deciding that it was too much.
Larry implored us to exert more control over our careers. He said McKinsey would never stop making demands on our time, so it was up to us to decide what we were willing to do. It was our responsibility to draw the line. — Sheryl Sandberg

Mckinsey Quotes By McKinsey & Company

Digital educators Salman Khan and Shantanu Sinha contend the world is on the verge of another "printing press moment," which will break the elite's grip on the essentials of education, making available to millions of aspiring learners online knowledge and ideas once restricted to the lecture halls of Harvard or Stanford. — McKinsey & Company

Mckinsey Quotes By Bethany McLean

McKinsey partners tend to be designers of ditches, not diggers of ditches. When it comes to executing their lofty theories, well, consultants lean toward leaving those messy realities to the companies themselves. — Bethany McLean

Mckinsey Quotes By Rebecca McKinsey

Mckinsey Quotes By Peter Drucker

Although he reputedly hated the label of 'guru', Peter Drucker was, by any standards, the greatest management guru the world has yet seen. In 1996, the McKinsey Quarterly journal described him as the 'the one guru to whom other gurus kowtow' and Robert Heller described him as 'the greatest man in the history of management', praise indeed for a man who described himself as 'just an old journalist'. — Peter Drucker

Mckinsey Quotes By Rebecca McKinsey

I refuse to hold the coats of this generation. — Rebecca McKinsey

Mckinsey Quotes By Dennis McKinsey

Jesus is a mythical figure in the tradition of pagan mythology and almost nothing in all of ancient literature would lead one to believe otherwise. Anyone wanting to believe Jesus lived and walked as a real live human being must do so despite the evidence, not because of it. — Dennis McKinsey

Mckinsey Quotes By Dennis McKinsey

Heaven is supposed to be a perfect place. Yet, it experienced a war (Revelation 12:7). How can there be a war in a perfect place and if it happened before why couldn't it happen again? Why would I want to go to a place in which war can occur? That's exactly what I'm trying to escape, aren't you? — Dennis McKinsey

Mckinsey Quotes By Warren Buffett

I asked him what he wanted to do for his career, and he replied that he wanted to go into a particular field, but thought he should work for McKinsey for a few years first to add to his resume. To me that's like saving sex for your old age. It makes no sense. — Warren Buffett

Mckinsey Quotes By Rebecca McKinsey

Mckinsey Quotes By Rebecca McKinsey

There's a difference between a mistake and a regret. Everything up to this moment has made this moment. If you can change a mistake, then go out and do what you can to change it. If you can't change it, there's no use regretting it because it will just make you miserable. Live right now, even if that involves dealing with the consequences of your actions. Time travel always ends badly. — Rebecca McKinsey

Mckinsey Quotes By Pallavi Aiyar

Mckinsey Quotes By Rebecca McKinsey

Perfect sanity is a myth propagated by straitjacket salesmen. — Rebecca McKinsey

People are fascinating. Especially the ones who hate me. — Rebecca McKinsey

Mckinsey Quotes By Thomas L. Friedman

Historically, noted James Manyika, one of the authors of the McKinsey report, companies kept their eyes on competitors "who looked like them, were in their sector and in their geography." Not anymore. Google started as a search engine and is now also becoming a car company and a home energy management system. Apple is a computer manufacturer that is now the biggest music seller and is also going into the car business, but in the meantime, with Apple Pay, it's also becoming a bank. Amazon, a retailer, came out of nowhere to steal a march on both IBM and HP in cloud computing. Ten years ago neither company would have listed Amazon as a competitor. But Amazon needed more cloud computing power to run its own business and then decided that cloud computing was a business! And now Amazon is also a Hollywood studio. — Thomas L. Friedman

Mckinsey Quotes By Rebecca McKinsey

Stories start in all sorts of places. Where they begin often tells the reader of what to expect as they progress. Castles often lead to dragons, country estates to deeds of deepest love (or of hate), and ambiguously presented settings usually lead to equally as ambiguous characters and plot, leaving a reader with an ambiguous feeling of disappointment. That's one of the worst kinds. — Rebecca McKinsey

Mckinsey Quotes By Dennis McKinsey

Biblical backing for Mormon behavior is easy to find, although Mark Twain is reported to have denied its legitimacy to a Mormon. The Mormon claimed polygamy was perfectly moral and he defied Twain to cite any passage of Scripture which forbade it. 'Well,' said Twain, 'how about that passage that tells us no man can serve two masters at the same time?' — Dennis McKinsey

Mckinsey Quotes By Rebecca McKinsey

Life is not a true or false question. — Rebecca McKinsey

Mckinsey Quotes By Rebecca McKinsey

When you don't change, history repeats itself. Then you have to decide if changing is for the best, or you keep seeing repeats because you're doing something right. — Rebecca McKinsey

Mckinsey Quotes By Tom Peters

'In Search of Excellence' was an afterthought, the runt of the McKinsey consulting litter, a hip-pocket project that was never supposed to amount to much. — Tom Peters

Mckinsey Quotes By Dennis McKinsey

If God kills, lies, cheats, discriminates, and otherwise behaves in a manner that puts the Mafia to shame, that's okay, he's God. He can do whatever he wants. Anyone who adheres to this philosophy has had his sense of morality, decency, justice and humaneness warped beyond recognition by the very book that is supposedly preaching the opposite. — Dennis McKinsey

Mckinsey Quotes By Sheryl Sandberg

I spent most of my career, including my time at McKinsey, never acknowledging that I was a woman. And, you know, fast forward - I'm 43 now - fitting in is not helping us. — Sheryl Sandberg

Mckinsey Quotes By Rebecca McKinsey

Work like an angel, dress like a demon, live like a ghost, and dream like a human. — Rebecca McKinsey

Mckinsey Quotes By McKinsey Chief Marketing & Sales Officer Forum

Once management is on board, the sales team needs to understand the rationale behind the micromarket strategy and have simple tools that make it easy to implement. That means aligning sales coverage with opportunity and creating straightforward sales "plays" for each type of opportunity. — McKinsey Chief Marketing & Sales Officer Forum

Mckinsey Quotes By Rebecca McKinsey

Never make the mistake of thinking you are alone - or inconsequential. Ignorance is voluntary and confusion is temporary. You see the world as-is, which is more than can be said for the vast populace. — Rebecca McKinsey

Mckinsey Quotes By Rebecca McKinsey

My point is this - you don't know. When I was first here, people looked at my hair, noticed apples on my tray, and thought 'hippie.' Then, from 'hippie' they thought 'druggie.' From there it went to 'will get me in trouble' and 'not worth my time,' and then they stopped thinking at all. No one bothered to find out if what they thought about me was true. No one wanted to hear what I thought. No one cared what I believed in. No one cared about talking to me or asking what my plans were for the day or night. And then came you. Don't let what you think you know make him into what I could have been. Don't become someone who doesn't think, just because you don't like him for some reason. Because, quite frankly, I like how you think. Except for now, of course. — Rebecca McKinsey

Mckinsey Quotes By Paul N. Friga

In fact, during my research and interviews with McKinsey alumni, the Talk element of the model was consistently ranked the most important of all interpersonal elements. Why is it that the simple act of talking can cause so many problems in team problem solving? Generally, because we don't have specific Rules of Engagement; because we like to speak more often than we listen; and because we get personally attached to our own points of view. — Paul N. Friga

Mckinsey Quotes By Rebecca McKinsey

One thing you have to realize from now on is that it doesn't matter if this is a dream or not. Survival depends on what you do, not what you think. — Rebecca McKinsey

Mckinsey Quotes By Jay Inslee

Not wasting energy. It is the least sexy, but the single most important and always the least expensive. You would be very interested in a report by the McKinsey consulting firm that concluded that 40 percent of everything that we have to do to mitigate our emissions are net economic winners. They are cost effective and the most cost effective is not wasting energy. That's actually going to be the largest part of this whole journey, I believe - using less energy with the same beneficial results. — Jay Inslee

Mckinsey Quotes By Rebecca McKinsey

Keeping Christ in Christmas is like showing up at someone's house every year, insisting on a party they never planned and never agreed to. — Rebecca McKinsey

Mckinsey Quotes By Thomas L. Friedman

The story also pointed out that most big cities and towns have chambers of commerce and economic development offices, but what makes Itasca unique, participants say, is a commitment to hard data and McKinsey-style analysis, as well as a willingness to depart from the script that drives many private sector lobbies. — Thomas L. Friedman

Mckinsey Quotes By Rebecca McKinsey

There seem to be two main types of people in the world, crosswords and sudokus. — Rebecca McKinsey

Mckinsey Quotes By Rebecca McKinsey

If truth is not objective, there is no good or evil. There is only what people do and how people feel about it. — Rebecca McKinsey

Mckinsey Quotes By Sheryl Sandberg

Larry implored us to exert more control over our careers. He said McKinsey would never stop making demands on our time, so it was up to us to decide what we were willing to do. It was our responsibility to draw the line. We needed to determine how many hours we were willing to work in a day and how many nights we were willing to travel. If later on, the job did not work out, we would know that we had tried on our own terms. Counterintuitively, long-term success at work often depends on not trying to meet every demand placed on us. The best way to make room for both life and career is to make choices deliberately - to set limits and stick to them. — Sheryl Sandberg

Mckinsey Quotes By Rebecca McKinsey

The ones who hate me the most are the ones who don't scare me. — Rebecca McKinsey

Mckinsey Quotes By Tom Peters

In McKinsey's world, all of life is one of two things: strategy or organization. — Tom Peters

Mckinsey Quotes By Sam Altman

If someone is choosing between joining McKinsey or your startup it's very unlikely they're going to work out at the startup. — Sam Altman

Mckinsey Quotes By Rebecca McKinsey

Mckinsey Quotes By Rebecca McKinsey

That kind of imagination is why we're not dead. — Rebecca McKinsey
