Found a good quote yesterday,
Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, who suffered at the hands of the Soviet Communists, put it well: “Gradually it was disclosed to me that the line separating good and evil passes not through states, nor between classes, nor between political parties either—but right through every human heart.”
This is useful for each of us in business leadership to remember. You can see the whole Christianity Today article here though the article is off this topic.
Each of us has issues both good and bad within us. This includes those around us and ourselves. We want to call people to the best they have which is not easy, while not falling to our own secretly self serving subjectivity.
So our own self awareness is critical. Our ability then to overcome our tendencies and help our people to do the same can mark us as great or just OK. The enemy is in each of us in a different form. We do well to pay heed and reach high.
