Daily Read Be a Force for Good

As a business leader you are in a unique position to affect many lives–lives that you don’t even know you impact.

It pays forward, so use your power for good. Here’s how:

  1. Give others something to believe in. What is your purpose, cause, or belief? The more you talk about it, the more you will inspire others to find theirs.
  2. Build a community that cares- where relationships are formed and people genuinely care about each other. You will make an impact if you are serious about honoring the humanity of your employees.
