Leadership

Leading others is a privilege, not a right and it requires a great deal of emotional intelligence because it’s not the same thing being a manager than being a leader. People tend to confuse these terms. “Management is doing things right, leadership is doing the right things”

Teamwork

Volunteering

The best way to receive is by giving. You receive so much more than what you are really giving that it seems surreal. And it is, because a little effort brings smiles, best wishes, blessings and the good feeling that your life is having a positive impact on someone else’s.
