The heart and soul of community = culture

As I have listened to the political rhetoric of the U.S. presidential campaign over the few past days I am reminded of one of the most important competencies of leaders. Leaders must remember that the esprit de corps of any community lies in its culture . . . its traditions, language, beliefs and customs.

Civic leaders must embrace the plight of communities. And, culture is not to be criticized or categorized, but understood.
