Life lessons from My Dad.

My father, a time served cabinet-maker and a Shop-steward left me with some epigrams that have stuck with me.

A job worth doing, is worth doing well

The Labourer is worthy of his hire

A good workman looks after his tools.

A bad workman blames his tools

Following on from a previous blog, I would offer these thoughts to Management.

People are the tools you work with. Look after them, treat them with respect and they’ll provide good service.

This is a lesson from biblical times.

The phrase that “the labourer is worthy of his hire” means more than just paying minimum wage for maximum abuse.

Try a sabbatical, working at shop floor level, to see why your business is declining
