Since everything rises and falls on leadership, I will discuss leadership concepts throughout the blog. In my opinion, the ability to learn and apply proper principles at the right time is essential for success in life and business. Ideas have consequences and the goal of this blog is to discuss ideas of consequence. Some ideas you may agree with and some you may disagree.
The rules of this blog are simple. Discuss in a civil manner and maintain emotional intelligence even if someone disagrees with you. Indeed, people who attack others only prove they have reached the limit of their logic. However, legitimate discussion is always welcome as the Bible states, “Iron sharpens iron” and the goal is to sharpen one another by discussing what we have thought, written, and read.
The more we can learn, follow, and share truth in every area of our lives, the more we can give back to others. I encourage you to join our leadership discussion and help change the world one person at a time. Like the Bible states, “Be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind.” Sincerely, Orrin Woodward
