I was just sorting through my paperwork and found this.
Last September, I gave a speech at a conference of professors from across central and eastern european business schools. One of my themes was about the importance of managers actually being interested in the people they manage. At the end of my presentation, one of the audience members handed me a note with the following Islamic saying:
Very often, we are concerned about our own welfare and the souls of others. It would be better if we would be more concerned about our own souls and the welfare of others.
