Thought this would be as good time as any to include some inspiration from the corporate leadership from the past year.
“We do have a high performing culture; we’re bright, ambitious, energetic and driven people…”
“…It will mean that we have to work really efficiently and effectively all of the time, and sometimes work at unreasonable and long hours – that’s the deal for any high performing team like ours.”
“…concerned that some people are having an easy or easier life, relying on others to cover for them. The economic and competitive environment is too tough for us to do this.”
“35 hours of activity is not a ceiling! Our best performers at the year end review combine high client utilisation with business development and practice support activities.”
“It’s not acceptable to opt out of this!”
“Mum, I think you should find a new job. Like a librarian or a dog walker or something.”
