STOP AND THINK – I consider my ability to arouse enthusiasm among men the greatest asset I possess. The way to develop the best that is in a man is by appreciation and encouragement. (Charles Schwab, businessman and investment advisor)

Some business executives lead like tyrants and dictators. “Do it my way, or else.” They are often harshly critical of their employee’s mistakes. Schwab suggests a better way. Many of us have experienced both kinds of leaders, and no doubt we would agree that we do better when our bosses express appreciation and encourage us in our work.

Therefore encourage one another and build each other up. (1 Thessalonians 5:11)
