How God's Work Is The Model For Your Work

Are Tech Wizards Revolutionizing Leadership?

Are Tech Wizards Revolutionizing Leadership?

Tech leaders have virtually unprecedented power to mold the future. The question is: how are they using it — and how will you?

In this post, James Kelly of FaithTech encourages leaders with the reminder of where some of today’s great technology leaders came from.

We are reminded to pray for the influential leaders and realizetechnology provides incredible opportunities to change minds, to change hearts, and to change the world — if leaders seize it.”

It inspired the team, gave us purpose and a clear goal. We spent hours formulating the vision and crafting a plan to execute it. Why don't we do the same in our health?
