The great CEO of General Motors, Alfred Sloan, was a business leader who understood that a corporation’s greatest asset is its people. Sloan once said, “Take my assets but leave me my organization, and, in five years, I’ll have it all back.” Sloan understood that every business is a people business. -Mary Kay Ash
