Q: How does faith play a role in the workplace?
Fred Wehba: For me, I believe that being a good leader means serving those who serve you.
Q: What do you mean by that?
Fred Wehba: I mean that you can’t be an effective leader without making sure that those around you are taken care of.
Q: Like how...?
Fred Wehba: Treat them with respect. Make sure that they have all the tools they need to do their job. Teach them. Mentor them.
Q: Those are definitely great leadership skills. Do you find that it’s best to befriend your employees rather than take on a role of authority?
Fred Wehba: I believe that we humans are all created equal and that there is only one true authority…but I also believe that people who have a gift to lead should serve Him by helping others find their way, both personally and professionally.
