    We discussed a wide rand of issues and Noemi asked me about beBee. After a brief explanation and background, I asked her country of origin.
    Peru. Spanish speaking!!!
    beBee was then a no brainer.

    For my first buzz...I'd like to share some simple observations.

    Without attending to self-care, self-refinement, and self-development...there can be no legitimacy or longevity expected in any professional as perceived by clients, coworkers, and even the competition.

    Positive: In mood, in actions. Never allowing negativity to grab even a fraction of your disposition. When tempted to be negative, remember the drawbacks inherent to Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt.

    Professional: With all individuals at every level of the professional world. Employing courtesy, patience, consideration and adaptation to where your every move is always made with the utmost emphasis on proper form and function.

    Dynamic: Never allowing yourself to become lost in the mire of mediocrity. You can overcome monotony by constant study, productive activity, and by being engaged in the world without compromising precious resources (attention/energy/time) unless merited. Dynamism as a facet of confidence will invariably convince others of your sincerity, but also make it easier for them to invest themselves in you.

    Consistent: Keep at it. Even (if not especially) when times are tough.
    Steven Vilkas

    Welcome to beBee Steven. I like the cut of your jib but I am for practical wisdom. If business actually worked this way I would be the happiest man in the world, and I have no doubt that you practice what you say, but if and were this world has been built on branded lies I am not going to put a pretty face on it.

    The intensity in your words is matched by the power of the words written by Napoleon Hill, who wrote "Think and Grow Rich".

    Even today, people look up to that book as practical wisdom, but Napoleon Hill in reality was a fraud, his story is contemptuous and his life was not reflective of that he spoke in such greatness about.

    I am sure you have strength of mind and presence to get past the bad actors and pursue the road of elegance and that of higher values. The way forward for those with the highest ethic is the road less traveled.

    I am glad you are on that road and for every Napoleon Hill that arrived in this world, may the antidote be a Steven Vilkas who remained true to his journey. Your chief advantage today is your resilience. My way is to embrace all forms of emotion & reason.

    Good leaders must be able to attract followers. Those followers will be molded into the good image of their leaders. Leaders have to prepare followers to be able to accept leadership roles in the future. In order for that to happen the followers must be properly trained. Leaders should not feel intellectually challenged by their subordinates.The path should be, qualified recruitment, training, management and then leadership.

    A good leader sets the tone for the entire team. @Brigette Hyacinth wrote, "Leaders build people through training, coaching, mentoring, and rewarding. They recognize that everyone is motivated differently." Yes! I will always remember my 'leader' who trained and kept mentoring me after I was hired to be a Respiratory Technician. He was, what you described above in the quote I used from your buzz. Sadly, he died about 5 years ago from Cancer, he was a great man.

    Your front-line management is probably awful.
    -- only 1 in 4 employees "strongly agree" that their manager provides meaningful feedback to them, that feedback they receive helps them do better work.
    -- Only 21% of employees strongly agree that their performance is managed in a way that motivates them to do outstanding work.
    -- 87% of first-time leaders feel frustrated, anxious and uncertain about their new role,
    -- Only 11% said they were groomed for that role through some developmental training or program.

    And there is this:
    β€’ 35% of US workers would forgo a raise to see their boss fired
    β€’ 44% of employees say they have been emotionally or physically abused by a supervisor
    β€’ 3 of 4 workers say that their boss is the worst / most stressful part of the job

    Teach your supervisors how to facilitate active workplace involvement and the sharing of best practices among the players. Build teams. Remove some of the things that prevent / roadblock supervisors from having time / resources to do what they basically WANT to do. Hell, who wants an adversarial, uncooperative, unmotivated workforce reporting to them.

    FORGET THIS SENIOR MANAGER LEADERSHIP TRAINING STUFF - it does not trickle down in any meaningful way.

    Many thanks to all below for taking the time to share your important insights, valuable feedback and positive engagement -- all of which are very much appreciated. I would address your comments individually, but that would end up taking up too much spacew within the top of the comment section.
    I would add that it's unfortunate for the USA and the world that we don't have similar strong leadership and bold vision in today's U.S. Congress and the White House to tackle a long list of important domestic and global issues. This is especially troubling during a time when America arguably needs another JFK-type president more than ever, at least compared to recent decades in history. Nevertheless, like the Eternal Flame marking JFK's grave site at Arlington National Cemetery, it is my hope that JFK's life lessons will also remain eternal in history. Again, many thanks to all!

    After reading this great tribute and your question, I felt this fitting @David B. Grinberg.

    From Robert F. Kennedy's Capetown Day of Affirmation Speech in 1966, (and engraved on his memorial at Arlington) in which he said:

    "It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance."

    I think the quote speaks as much for his brother, as it did for him.

    Fantastic Buzz. I love his words β€œWe are confronted primarily with a moral issue. It is as old as the scriptures and it is as clear as the American Constitution. This nation, for all its hopes and all its boasts, will not be fully free until all of its citizens are free.β€β€Š
    The conflict I see today is citizens of the United States are confusing the Difference between Liberty and Freedom. Although an individual has freedom or liberty, he or she must still conform to what is morally right and ethical. This is where I see the disagreement today, and JFK did not. He was a great leader and will always be remembered.

    hi all :) just to comment on the "being authentic" topic, which obviously is a "big issue" "nowadays" in the/a digital world, but hasnΒ΄t that "played a role" before ;) too ;) and if one/you should play (or pretend to be) authentic, then this is/would be authentic too ;) so, I guess "authentic" is kind of a wrong word if you mean reliability or trustworthy or any other "attribute" a person can or should or must have, according to your opinion ;) for you to accept its (person) nature ;) "native" and/or mostly ;) "cultivated" or learned or trained ;) So, everyone is authentic. If we like what we see or hear or experience from any person, is (always) up to us ;)

    #4 Thanks for bringing my attention to this important post @Chris 🐝 Guest Cert.Prof.Acc.SA. You highlight a crucial indicator of the direction in which employee/manager relationships are heading @Phil Johnson. I think there may be another factor at work here; business has taken more of a product oriented environment turn and less people oriented. The employees are objectified and are seen more from within a functional framework. One of the concerns of the use of technological devices and tools is that we become more disengaged from people and we find ourselves in the process of redefining what relationships mean. I still experience us in a transition period as we are trying to make sense of it all. As long as discussions like this are taking place, there is hope. Thanks Phil for being a catalyst of this timely discussion.

    #1 @David B. Grinberg I would answer this question with both. For example, people sometimes view Martin Lurther King Jr as a Natural born leader, and then you look at another great leader in history like Moses and he was not. Moses did not even want the position that God had assigned to him. Yet, give guidance and assistance from his brother Aaron, he slowly grew into the man he needed to be.
    From my own life, I have strong character and skills, yet that is only because a long struggle I had as a young. I needed a lot of friends and other mentors not to give up on me, just to get me to the point where I believed in my-self. But, now that is part of my testimony that some people have told me help give me some of my leadership skills. I was not a born leader. I always associate, listen, and read from as many as I can. I now I can always grow. LEARN, DO, TEACH. It is a ongoing process.

    Great post and resource @Netta Virtanen. As a member of the social media community, I must understand the culture and language in order to be seen and understood. One of the reasons I connect with beBee is because you and your team communicate in a "common" language how to do that. The whole topic of branding is key in that it is attached to our identity. So when one moves, virtually and in reality, whether it be residence, neighborhood, community or country, it shakes us up a bit by challenging that identity. You and your team on beBee give us a place in which you support and guide us to not only communicate who we are, but to stop and think about that "who"; personal and professional.

    All 40 of these are so good that I can't even pick one that would make more difference than others. The world would be a better place if all leaders (and each of us is a leader in some form or fashion) would take these ideas and whole-heartedly put them into practice.

    There is no money in Peace - if there was; that would be breaking out everywhere. Fear and Low Info are the payday for Money and Power - and they have been that way for Millennia. It will not change in our life time. The current color revolutions in play by Soros & Clinton prove that. It's a recipe as old as Marx - too bad too few care to read it. Too bad so many still crave and love the Pavlovian Kibble.

    My grandfather served in WWI- just not to date myself too much, I had a much older grandfather. My other grandfather served during WWII and my dad during the Korean War. They all signed up voluntarily, so I came from a family of strong men, sadly they all left too soon. It was my mother who raised 5 children on a mealy wage that inspired me to dream, anything is possible and to never give up. Times have been tough lately. I have been more silent because my brain is trying to heal. But, in numbers there is strength and I/WE shall prevail!

    Being the daughter & sister of service men who faced 'the enemy' in Korea, Vietnam, and the Gulf, the former wife of a police officer and a single mother for my daughter's entire life, I can say this; courage is love in it's purest form. We can try to separate them, but they are one and the same. I did not see myself as courageous for being a single mother because I love my daughter so much there is nothing I won't do, nothing I won't sacrifice for her well-being and happiness.
    When my brother left this earth I was his executor and supervised all the funeral arrangements. A cousin came up to me at the services and whispered: "You're the strongest person I've ever met". I wasn't strong., I wanted to scream at everything and everybody, BUT, my brother had suffered mentally and emotionally his entire life and because of this many looked down on him. I was going to make damn sure that his passing was seen as a great loss to us, because it was. Courage is love. Love will give you the strength of 10.

    #29 I imagine it not to be courage.
    I imagine running away as courageous.
    We all ultimately do what we want to,
    I don't think courage is the problem, the problem is the lack of time, time doesn't wait for a decision.
    I am afraid of time constraints.

    Thank you for this reminder, @Donna-Luisa Eversley. I believe in courage; I've seen it in action. I won't piggy-back on your post, so I'll save the story for another day, but I know what's in us and I believe humans summon up the best when their backs are to the wall.

    A timely and relevant buzz @Donna-Luisa Eversley. One of my favorite quotes about courage: "β€œCourage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says I'll try again tomorrow.” ~ Mary Anne Radmacher. I love this quote because courage does come in all shapes and sizes, and it resides within us even when we don't realize that it is there. We are presented with circumstances and challenges every step of the way so I believe that courage definitely plays a part in helping us along the way. Lately, for me, it has been that little voice at the end of the day. Thanks for a lovely piece of writing and reflection, Donna.

    Good and emotional text Donna.

    I just what add a point, the mothers case. I bealive it's something more highter tham courage and that "thing" is called love.
    I've heard about cases who moms lifting up cars to save children's, fight against aggressors and in some cases even wild animals... So courage is a magnific atribut, but love is everything is the true power behind the human been. And the moms express this very well.

    Thanks for the post ;)

    Your post, DLE, inspires me to be grateful for my mostly peaceful existence. My calls to arms have been few and far between. I therefore echo your admiration of those who protect us and our society and of those who patch us up and sew us back together when we suffer "man's inhumanity to man".

    It's funny, you say "Sometimes there is no distinction between a call to action for serving others, and a call to action for serving self."
    But for me it is much much easier a call to action for serving others. I can feel the courage enough to fight for your rights easier than for mine. It's been always like that and sometimes I would like that to be different.
    Great Producer my dear @Donna-Luisa Eversley!! 😍

    Thank you, DL, for this very moving, profound and timely buzz. I don't recall who coined this phrase: you can never go wrong by doing what's right." I often refer to some of my favorite quotes from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. such as:
    "The time is always right to do what's right." - MLK
    "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere."
    I think it's a positive sign and refreshing to see so many colossal crowds in the USA and around the world standing up and speaking out for what is morally and legally right. Moreover, it's astounding that all of these recent protests and demonstrations have been peaceful, for the large part, which pays homage to lasting legacy of MLK and Gandhi that groundbreaking change can be made through persistent and massice civil disobedience (emphasis on "civil").
    Nevertheless, history has shown the people of goodwill and moral turpitude will always find the courage to rise up -- peacefully or otherwise -- against authoritarian/totalitarian rulers. In fact, without revolution and resistance against tyranny the USA and other nations throughout world history may have ceased to exist.
    Therefore, I remain steadfast and hopeful.
