Loyalty & Trust: Your Foundation as a Leader
Ownership Begins With Loyalty:
Loyalty is always a two-way street. You cannot command loyalty; you have to earn it. If you are compassionate and generous, your people are much more likely to be loyal to you.
Trust Is the Glue in a Culture of Ownership:
Great cultures require great trust all the way around. The absence of trust is like a tax on your business. When you trust people to act in the best interest of the company and place long-term loyalty ahead of short-term profit, you can create a sustainable and unrivaled source of competitive advantage. Why? Because your people will know that you are not self-serving and have their best interests in mind.
This is the type of work place that you and I want to work for...
It is no wonder then, that Jesus Christ has more followers on this earth than any other person or group. Read this awesome quote by Napoleon Bonaparte about Him...
"I know men and I tell you that Jesus Christ is no mere man.
Between him and every other person in the world
there is no possible term of comparison.
Alexander, Caesar, Charlemagne, and I founded empires.
But on what did we rest the creations of our genius?
Jesus Christ founded His empire upon love;
and at this hour millions of people would die for Him."
