Nautical expressions for managers

Do you have to choose between the devil and deep blue see? Dutch courage? And how is it with your blind eye? More than 250 nautical expressions & sayings are captured in seven management issues.

Since the classic ‘age of sail’, there has been a constant growth in maritime shipping and trading. Furthermore, the love of the sea and the international trading spirit are anchored in many English nautical proverbs which are still in regular use today. After all, the challenges that people had to overcome at sea in those days still hold true for today’s captains of industry.

This booklet brings to life more than two hundred and fifty nautical proverbs, sayings and expressions for today’s managers. It covers topics such as leadership, strategy, commerce, management, personnel, and finance, all with a nautical flavour. After reading this book, managers will be able to clear the decks, set a new course, and make significant new headway!

The Nautical expressions and their etymology are divided among the following chapters:
- Captain and leadership
- Navigation and strategy
- The Ship and commerce
- Officers and management
- Mutiny and personnel
- Sailors and employees
- Cargo and financials
