62. The Master said, “There are four essentials in a leader’s handling of matters. First is to handle them fairly and honestly without transgressing rules and regulations or being swayed by intimacy or distance. Second is to handle them by letting go of the ‘small I’ to look at the whole and observe the far future without being enticed by the immediate. Third is to handle them harmoniously and generously, on a foundation of human affection and justice. Fourth is to handle them explicitly through accurate accounting and consistent clarity from beginning to end.”
