The program addressed the following business principles: 
  • The surprising fact that leaders who can manage to “close their mouths and listen” have a better chance of being heard, believed and followed 
  • Getting out of the way and letting employees use their God-given talents makes them want to stay and contribute to the bottom-line; rekindling the lost art of “intrinsic” motivation can be fun, 
  • “Managing” change is a self-contradiction, perpetuating the false belief that we could be in charge of making someone else actually change; 
  • Inexpensive and rewarding (personally, professionally and commercially); losing your soul to maximize shareholder return hurts the business and prolongs your stay in Purgatory.
