Business Excellence: Competing and Winning for the Glory of God
5 Marks of a Kingdom Entrepreneur
We were created in the image of a working and creative God. We work for the glory of a Great God and the commitment to honor him should fuel us with an energy, focus and commitment that should give us a unique advantage. We look for entrepreneurs that own the concept that the degree that we do our work well is the degree that we have an opportunity to witness and be heard, and so we need to pursue a plan for excellence in business that will undoubtedly include aspects from planning, professional development, cultural formation, goal setting, execution and assessment.
