"Nothing happens unless first we dream": Edification = a cornerstone of #leadership

thisrascallovesfreedom:

What is ‘Edification’?


  • Bringing out the best in others - true & sincere
  • Verbally pointing out others’ strengths
  • Being a ‘good’finder
  • Building someone up, while being true & sincere, rather than tearing others down to maintain your own standing.

Edification replaces witty tear-downs,…

Association is a powerful force. Eliminate as much negativity as possible from your life.

“What worries me the most is that we have a natural inclination to trust those who are branded as experts, even before they open their mouths, and this is a dangerous tendency in a world where experts have the accuracy of a chimp playing darts.”

______

There are NO experts. Anytime I hear this word when someone is discussed, my first thought is - how much self directed education is that person pursuing?  How much metaphorical thought, in depth/undercurrents v. literal thought, surface/waves, is this “expert” employing when discussing an idea or issue?

"Whoever stubbornly refuses to accept criticism will suddenly be destroyed beyond recovery." - Proverbs 29:1
