If you believe God is Love, as I do, then charity, faith, and spirituality are central to everything you do in both your vocational life and personal life. The most rewarding purpose is to serve others, whether business associates or persons in need.
Find someone who has both some mutual interests and some differing interests. Respect each other, no matter how much you may disagree. Do things together.
A successful leader:
- Knows as much as he can about his organization’s mission
- Believes in the mission
- Communicates the mission clearly
- Points the way
- Gets out of the way
