ABOUT THE CHILDREN: HUNGER, THIRST, EDUCATION, AND SAFETY

PART ONE: HUNGER

by Dee Rivers

"We are guilty of many errors and many faults, but our worst crime is abandoning the children, neglecting the foundation of life. Many of the things we need can wait. The child cannot.

This module presents three imperatives: Coaching, Helping, and Fixing. It shows leaders how to create an environment to build (coach) other leaders, hence multiplying their impact.

As with any team, choosing the right people is paramount.

An evolved leader marginalizes no one.
