training cliches, maxims and funny sayings

Used by trainers and speakers, here are some maxims and sayings, with one or two new ideas and twists.

Dress code working-style indicators: jacket on = directing; jacket off = participating; trousers off = performing.

If you can't ride two horses at the same time you shouldn't be in the circus.

To the optimist, the glass is half full. To the pessimist, the glass is half empty. To the project manager, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.

If a=1%, b=2%, c= 3%, etc., what does 'attitude' add up to? ........ (work it out - the answer is 100%).

'Mushroom Management' - The practice of keeping people in the dark, and every now and then dumping a load of dirt on them. (See McGregor's X-Y Theory.)

'Wheelbarrow Management' or 'Wheelbarrow Culture' - people only work when pushed, and are easily upset (as described by certain managers, who probably have only themselves to blame...).

Tell'em what you're gonna tell'em, tell'em, tell'em what you told'em. (Training and presentations mnemonic for effective presentation or speaking structure, in other words: introduction, content points, summary.)

When you ASSUME you make an ASS out of U and Me.

There is no I in TEAM. (But if you look carefully there is a ME...)

No gain without pain.
