Nykymainonnan isä, Albert Lasker, antaa tyttärelleen mainioita ohjeita liittyen johtajuuteen.
”My darling Mary, Welcome to Lord & Thomas. I hope we have a long business association together—if we do, we will both get much joy from it. Both as father and employer I give you this advice—try to learn from everyone (high and low), try to be of service to everyone (high and low). He finally leads who first learns to serve. And remember—we spend our lives learning. Above all, be yourself—your best self. Always think of the other fellow’s viewpoint and try to get him to think of yours. Learn to walk before you run. Believe in yourself—and believing, strive to learn every day and grow creatively every minute so that you will justify your belief.
