He who tends the fig tree will eat its fruit, And he who tends his master will be honored.
King Solomon (Proverbs 27:18)
Good advice is not new. King Solomon is often referred to as the wisest man who ever lived and he is on record as endorsing the concept of Creative Followership.
I can confirm the validity of his advice. It works! It worked for me and I believe it will work for you.
Think about it.
If you tend a tree, you get to eat the fruit. If you are willing to tend to your boss’ business, you will be rewarded. This will work for you at any level of responsibility in any organization. In addition to reward, if you care for your boss, you will be honored.
Reward and recognition. That is the success and satisfaction that we all desire.
Is that what you want from your career?
Join me and together we will enjoy the journey of Creative Followership.
