After just sitting through a plenary with Harris Rosen and listening to his philosophies on management vs. leadership, I am inspired. He said that by creating a culture where people believe they are being treated fairly, they feel respected, and feel valued, they will stay. It strikes me that the Jewish value of “achari”, after me, is so prevalent in his practice. What a valuable and wonderful lesson to take with me as a manager. Teams who feel valued and respected will stand up for what your agency believes in, fight for your agency’s causes, and will inevitably end up furthering your organization. Honest, ethical, and compassionate practice is something we should all, as a global society, strive for. When all of those things are present in a business model, we can break down the walls that exist between our different departments, our different cultures, and our different branches of Judaism.
