Lee McCroskey - The Law of Addition

The Law of Addition.     Thanks for joining me to explore Maxwell's 5th law--the Law of Addition. Remember we add value to others when our mentality and actions focus on SERVING. So, to that end, here are a few questions for discussion and reflection:  

 Ask yourself the following questions:

1. How and when are you a servant leader?

2. When do you get impatient and or resentful?

3. Are there tasks beneath your dignity/position?

4. What do the people closest to you value?

5. Are you making things better for the people around you? 

6. Right now is your attitude adding to them or subtracting from them?

 

 Talk to you next week! Do well, and keep up the great work.
