Day Three of Week 7: Tiferet of Malchut

Day Three of Week 7: Tiferet of Malchut

45th Day of the Omer


Examine the compassion of sovereignty. A good leader is a compassionate one. Is my compassion compromised because of my authority? Do I realize that an integral part of dignity is compassion?

Tiferet - harmony - is critical for successful leadership. Do I manage a smooth-running operation? Am I organized? Do I give clear instructions to my subordinates? Do I have difficulty delegating power? Does my organization work as a team? Do we have frequent staff meetings to coordinate our goals and efforts?

Exercise for the day: Review an area where you wield authority and see if you can polish it up and increase its effectiveness by curtailing excesses and consolidating forces.

Please compile these in a book! I wish Chabad would publish a book with these comments, maybe inserting blank lined pages where the owner could write in the dates for their years, Reply

Tiferet Does my compassion manifest as self appreciation and a serene sense of self reliance, or have I sunk into a crippling self pitty that makes me feel ashamed and incapable of taking the necessary steps to lead a dignified life? In the face of adverse circumstances, how can I restore my equanimity and find my way? Sometimes I feel desperated! Reply

Easier to say than do. I fully agree with the ideas presented. It seems that most people are not able to make a change, much less consider making one. If we all try we surely will build a better place at home and work. Reply

Compassion Tiferet (Harmony); Harmony in all relationships is very crucial with compassion of our spirituality with one G-d always. Brought out a very good example for the day!

so now one sees where it originates from! For last year's law exams I wrote about the Israeleet medical team's response to the Haiti earthquake as an answer to a question on public emergencies - and got grade A ! All their organisation and work was delegated instead of one leader designating and behaving in such a manner that you suggest is sinful and requiring reflection etc...
