Of the things we think, say or do

1) Is it the TRUTH?

2) Is it FAIR to all concerned?

3) Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER


4) Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?

The essence of leadership is a vision you articulate clearly

and forcefully on every occasion. You cant blow an uncer-
tain trumpet.
