Comments31/08/2016 #24 Cory Galbraith#23 Thanks for your comment @debasish majumder. I won't attempt to challenge Plato on what he said, but my conclusion in relating his words to today's circumstances, is that often in business, people use buzz phrases and language they do not fully understand themselves, in an attempt to impress other people. The point here is that clear communication should be the priority, not trying to impress others.30/08/2016 #23 debasish majumdernice insight Cory Galbraith. lovely elucidation. only thing i am bit confused is the last point, where you mentioned "SPEAK TO BE UNDERSTOOD." how could we eventually conclude that poet's utterances seldom be understood by themselves? is not it a deliberate effort to undermine one's acumen and virtually foil the entire essence of your post, where sense of humility being distorted?25/08/2016 #15 Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD#2 @David B. Grinberg, you are so right: Who can argue with Plato? #7 Mentoring students is a key concept in medicine, where the medical student always seeks approval from the Attending Physician, who is held in great respect. I would also add #: Great Leaders Make Great Leaders. That is the ultimate success when the greatest university Professors produce the next ones. #11 @Tausif Mundrawala, you said it. Thank you for posting, Cory @Cory Galbraith24/08/2016 #11 Tausif MundrawalaPlato was gifted with the knowledge of two philosophers who immediately preceded him: Socrates and Aristotle. The latter was the tutor of Socrates and Plato was the student of Socrates. He grew under the tutelage of Socrates, no doubt about that, but he had his own great thinking and philosophy. All his teachings are worth paying heed.

Stop being an idol to your self.To avoid being a Micro manager educate your self. Don't flex your muscles because of your connection with the hierarchy managerial structure. You will be nothing when there is a shake-up.22/08/2016 #1 AnonymousThank you @Cory Galbraith for sharing your insightful post so short as relevant.
"Excellence" is not a gift, but a skill that takes practice.
We do not act "rightly" because we are "excellent",
in fact we achieve "excellence" by acting "rightly".

Comments15/08/2016 #1 Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD@Max🐝 J. Carter ~ so true! Let's add in there "A wise woman.... yes?" And just to note that plenty of famous people were not appreciated in their quest to be 'wise..' Many of whom did not get 'famous' until after they died. So, whenever someone gets upset at what we say (i.e., those who are spiritual/philosophical/'religious') I always pause. And when it boils down to it, leaders are here for the people, not for other leaders. So as long as we wake up To Serve, that is all I need before God. I'm not here to please any one. Only the poor and hungry. And I need to get better at that, always. Muaaah!
