December 9th 2018

*MONDAY MANNA* /*December 10, 2018*/ /*Twenty-one years at service to the world’s business community*/ *Compassion For "The Least of These"* By Austin Pryor With Christmas fast approaching, churches and Christian relief organizations are encouraging us to have a charitable and giving spirit toward the poor. This is good. But may I suggest that care should be taken so the breadth of our compassion is neither too broad on the one hand nor too narrow on the other? How can it be too broad? Many Christians use Je ...Continue Reading

November 25th 2018

*MONDAY MANNA* /*November 26, 2018*/ /*Twenty-one years at service to the world’s business community*/ *Conforming - Or Being Transformed?* *By Jim Langley* Have you noticed how easily we get caught up in doing things the way our culture dictates, becoming squeezed into the world’s mold? We find almost everyone conforming to the current trends, adopting the behaviors, values and beliefs endorsed by the entertainment media, popular books, the Internet and social media. In 1977, a popular song rose to the top of the m ...Continue Reading

November 18th 2018

*MONDAY MANNA* /*November 19, 2018*/ /*Twenty-one years at service to the world’s business community*/ *Giving Thanks – For Everything* *By Robert J. Tamasy* Traditionally, the observance of Thanksgiving Day in the United States takes place on the fourth Thursday in November. That means this year it is being celebrated on Nov. 22, the earliest it is ever held. That means two things: the so-called “Christmas season,” which spans Thanksgiving to Christmas day, is at maximum length; and the formal holiday gives us a hea ...Continue Reading

*MONDAY MANNA* /*November 12, 2018*/ /*Twenty-one years at service to the world’s business community*/ *The Power of "Listenership"* *By Jim Mathis* When my wife and I sold our custom photo lab in 1996 and joined the staff of CBMC, my adviser, Ted Hubbard, an attorney and judge from England, gave us a five-year plan. He offered some sage advice, recommending I do nothing the first year but listen, meeting with as many people as I could and hearing what was on their hearts. The second year, Ted said, I shou ...Continue Reading

October 28th 2018

*MONDAY MANNA* /*October 29, 2018*/ /*Twenty-one years at service to the world’s business community*/ *Time: Friend or Foe?* *By Robert J. Tamasy** * In the business and professional world, as well as other areas of life, time is somewhat of a paradox. When facing an inflexible deadline, time seems to move incredibly fast, escalating our stress levels. But when we are anxiously awaiting an important decision – perhaps a job promotion, or a potential client deciding whether to sign a contract – the pace of time can se ...Continue Reading

Elmore offered nine principles he considers critical in the mentoring ...Continue Reading

Monday Manna -  The Virtue of Exceeding Expectations

October 14th 2018

*MONDAY MANNA* /*October 15, 2018*/ /*Twenty-one years at service to the world’s business community*/ *The Virtue of Exceeding Expectations* *By Robert J. Tamasy* Often people in business deal with a temptation to do the bare minimum, to satisfy the requirements but not go the “extra mile” in serving the customer, the supplier, or even the employee. Such thinking, however, can be very short-sighted. Not to mention self-centered, rather than others-centered. Contrary to this type of approach to business, I have been de ...Continue Reading

October 7th 2018

*MONDAY MANNA* /*October 8, 2018*/ /*Twenty-one years at service to the world’s business community*/ /*The Underappreciated Gift of Rest*/ By Sergio Fortes Recently I spent an entire Saturday at home doing…nothing. I had planned to go to the beautiful park of the small Brazilian town where I live, and stroll among its giant trees, lakes, and open areas where some families enjoy friendly picnics. For some reason, I could not do any of this. Sloth – you might call it laziness, or spiritual apathy and inactivity – took h ...Continue Reading
