Adrian:
Wonderful post. I loved your quote selections and agree we should keep seeing:

Management is the most noble of professions if it’s practiced well. No other occupation offers as many ways to help others learn and grow, take responsibility and be recognized for achievement, and contribute to the success of a team.
