Lessons Learned – Lesson 5: Community Service

Here is the latest video in my Lessons Learned series. This one relates to the lessons I have learned when it comes to a business’ role in community service.

Here are the key lessons:

  • Contributing to the community in which you operate is good for business. Business and social goals can often be attained simultaneously for the same cost.
  • It is important to encourage and enable your employees to make social contributions and be sure to capitalize on the recognition received by you, your employees and your company.
  • Achieving success as a community volunteer can be very gratifying and can also level out the psychological roller coaster.

Please check out my previous videos in the Lessons Learned video series and be sure to comment and share the lessons you’ve learned throughout your career.
