Evaluate your spiritual health

Before you make any moves to starting an Employee Resource Group (ERG) at your company, you need to take stock of your own spiritual health.

Many Christians ignore this step, opting instead to jump into the work before taking their own internal temperature. Although it’s understandable to want to get ‘right to it,’ it pays to take some time to be circumspect. You can’t start a program for other people if you’re not taking care of yourself. And you can’t expect other people to follow you if they don’t already respect your work ethic.

Know your heart and know the one who knows your heart best. -Psalm 139:23-24

"I believe that my work is not about me; it's about the greater good. Every day, I get up and try to do something to improve the world in some way. But, I'm humble enough to know that I'm human, that I'm one of 11,000 people at this company. There are 10,999 others that make just as much of a difference. My job is to help them make more of a difference."

"Integrity starts with a moral standard. If you don’t have a moral compass and if you are not linked with God, it is very difficult to live it out.
