Nine Business Insights from Time CEO Ann Moore

06 Dec

…From an interview in Knowledge at Wharton

One: Never turn down the chance to vote.

Two: The only difficult assignment in business is finding good people and putting them in the right job.

Three: You will never have more control over your professional life than you do when you start out. Enjoy control and time while you still have it.

Four: Forget the clock. Get a compass instead. Where you are headed is more important than how fast you are going.

Five: Power accrues to those who produce results. Profits matter.

Six: Power isn’t everything. Power means incredible sacrifice and constant trade-offs between work, spouse and family.

Seven: Recognize that there are fundamental differences between men and women.

Eight: All behavior emanates from the top and reverberates down the organization to the lowest level.

Nine: Making money is easy. Making a difference is hard.
