BEING Versus DOING

Bernard Mayo a philosopher of “Ethics and the Moral Life” discusses the fact that “Saints and Heroes” show us that a “living example,” not rigid rules is important to ethics. We learn more about ethics by looking at the lives of people than by learning a set of principles” (Pojman and Vaughn 2014). I believe…

The Ability To Connect

Connecting and relationships are essential to life, growth, development, success, building bridges and foundations that will mobilize people and organizations to be extraordinary together.     It is important for everyone to connect, but leaders are primarily tasked with connecting on a higher level.
