About influence – As a child I was often influenced by occasions or people which were important to me, and they played key roles in shaping the person I am today. First among my teachers for life was my mom, who schooled me about independence, modesty, and perseverance, even when times are rough. A second was my aunt, who lived next door, who taught me that it is enough to be happy with your cup of coffee, your cigarette or your crossword puzzles – if the people you love are with you. My best friend’s mom taught me that you don’t have to be a great cook or have a polished house, you can let go of yourself and flex your identity like a muscle, and fit it to the environment to make your impact count. And my extraordinary and energetic French teacher, Annie, who inspired me to become a culture consumer. I could go reminisce about the influences in my life for pages. If you have the gift – the ability and the talent to influence others – then as a teacher or instructor, you need to be a good role model and set an example yourself. I can personally attest to the fact that Vayomar has the human resources to provide such teachers and instructors.
About stability as a major factor in success – The long-term greatness of a building is measured not by its beautiful offices or its architecture or even by its height, but by its strong foundations. The foundations of an organization are its employees. The management of an organization should view their employees as individuals who need to evolve, influence and grow within their environment. If you facilitate and encourage this, then you’ll cultivate creative and self-motivated employees.
