“The heart of it all” is a term I am using to explain the failure of all things.
Why do we say that a company has changed when someone leaves? You feel this because people in the company are its heart. People with plenty of heart add intrinsic value to the company and drive passion for the business. When great people with plenty of heart leave the company, they take their heart and soul with them…thus causing the change you feel. When the company loses heart – morale, spirit and the devotion of the staff falters. The heart falters. This applies not just to companies but relationships, the state of the society and even the family.
Look into the heart of it all and you will find the answer.
