Does Every Senior Leader On Your Team Have A Backup?

https://www.feld.com/archives/2018/04/does-every-senior-leader-on-your-team-have-a-backup.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+FeldThoughts+%28Feld+Thoughts%29

Assume aliens came down and one of your senior leaders was taken away to their home planet. Do they have a person reporting to them who could step into their role, even if it’s only temporary?

It’s remarkable to me, even in companies that are over 100 people, how the answer to this question is no.

(more at the site in link above)

Totally agree Feld Thoughts!

This is one of the many things missing in the business world! We care more for machines (our tech) than we do a human being! (for we hard copy and digitally back up everything right? We need to! Electricity is not forever! Contingency plan folks! Viruses and all!)

So how important are the humans who run the business?

What would happen if they suddenly vanished? Died? Got too sick to work? Some other emergency?

I know that when someone close to me passes away, that affects me, there is Grief Relief in the workplace.

Set it up like the military, for business is a type of war folks.

Command structure, replacement troops, etc.

Rotate! Help prevent fatigue and stress! The number one cause of failure in the business world. Help prevent the addiction called workaholism! 😀

As Christians, this should be our goal, to bring the Rest and Peace of the Lord of the Sabbath to every part of our lives- work included.

There are too many, who are literally starving, physically and spiritually.

So i understand the desire to be the one. (only one)

It’s something i am bringing up more and more, how to actually Rest in the Lord.

It is amazing to me how many Christians don’t feel this!

How many of us are not using our faith in ever area of our lives!

Employed by atheists, obviously.

I think it is more like Capitalism, the Business world is run by atheists.

More like False Christians.

You own a company? Do you?

Want to run one? Start one?

One that actually protects and supports like Christ? A company like that? A business?

Would truly be competitive today.

For i say better customer service, better employee treatment, etc…in the view of 1 Corinthians 13:4-8, do you actually ‘hear’ me? Do you see?

Or are you another with a dusty bible? A hardening heart? Under the curse of the lawless?

STOP!

For many are literally dying! Physically and spiritually, from fatigue and stress!

Act like you care more about Christ than money for a change!

This is what i mean by we will be judged MORE for HOW we treat each other (ourselves) than anything else…by Christ.

It’s never ‘just business’!

Everything is a part of life and so Christ can and will be in it, in Yeshua’s holy name!

The more we (you) (i) listen and obey Christ in the smallest of things, the more we will experience all the attributes (the benefits) of Christ in the big things.

Just reading, listening, studying, focusing on the bible, changes everything!

The Word is phenomenal! Stop copying the world’s ways, by Breathing In Christ, breathe out all the things not of Him.

Repeat.

Feel the difference? 😀

i know i do.

(P.S.-Also, these very simple actions will cause a tremendous negative reaction from the devoid. It means what you are doing is/will be very effective! Be encouraged by this! Cry out to Yeshua for help! and leap! Fly Phoeni! Fly!) 😀

Quote (Peter 8, 2018)y

“What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?”

Robert H. Schuller

Very good question!

I would write a novel.

I would go on a journey/vacation somewhere, anywhere, NY, and Ghana, Kenya, South Africa, Himalayas, Hawaii…

Fly an airplane :-). hang gliding, deep sea diving and walk in outer space!

Enter those Iron Man competitions.

Produce and sell a music album in all my favorite genres!

Library’s and Art Galleries genre specific.

Clothes line, shoe line, makeup, perfume line, etc.

(It is amazing how just the way it was said, set off a chain reaction of ideas! Hallelujah! 😀

Quotes, Lucille Ball

“It’s a helluva start, being able to recognize what makes you happy.”

Lucille Ball

 (for a lot of people do not know and many others THINK they know…Very few have verified what makes them happy, especially not including another person, happy.)
Whatever gives you joy, peace, calm, these are the things spoken of here. For those in the darkest depression ever? That which is a little less negative (dark) than the other…(seek the Way (John 14:6).
