Humility, Part Two
If each of us hires people that are smaller than we are, we shall become a company of dwarfs. (David Ogilvy, Advertising Genius)
Imagine what a company would be like in terms of initiative, creativity, and growth if there were no superior or advanced thinkers. Ogilvy expresses the better scenario, “But if each of us hires people that are bigger than we are, we shall become a company of giants.” To do so, of course, requires the humility of the leaders and their willingness to give freedom to their staff.
Without wise leadership, a nation falls. . . . When there is moral rot within a nation, its government topples easily. But wise and knowledgeable leaders bring stability. (Proverbs 11:14; 28:2)
