BUT, don't become surety for another; that is, responsible for him, or his affairs -Proverbs 11:15 "He that is surety for a stranger shall smart for it and he that hateth suretyship is sure" Proverbs 6:1-3 "My son, if thou be surety for thy friend or if thou hast stricken thy hand with a stranger.(made an agreement), thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou art taken with the words of thy mouth. Do this now, my son and deliver thyself, when thou art come into the hand of thy friend; go, humble thyself and make sure thy friend" Proverbs 17:18 "A man void of understanding striketh hands and becometh surety in the presence of his friend" Proverbs 20:16 "Take his garment that is surety for a stranger....."

Corporations having been infiltrated by the dark side, the negative mass mind of humanity which always leads by sinister means, always a hidden agenda; and usually part of that is, to use undue advantage in attaining an end result at the expense of something; including to get as much for as least as possible; for example: make it taste as good as it can while doing all the harm it could possible do.(not intended of course, just deceived by the dark side), and get as much for it as as we can. And the dark side sits back and laughs as people pay good money for that which will hasten their destruction. The curse of mankind is to gain control for selfish reasons. Mankind as a whole needs to work on cleansing its heart -James 4:8.

All of this through such corporate heads as directors, CEO's, CFO's, etc., whose main motivation is selfishness and greed. Their policies steer the corporation down the river of no return, being unable to clearly discern how to reverse the direction in which they are going because they are deceived by the dark side.

These low quality or no quality corporations should be avoided, because they will bring you also to negation; negation in years wasted; negation in attitude, as one tends to become like the atmosphere within which one consistently spends a great portion of time. Every company, every family, is a combination of its attitudes. Attitudes are the precursors to formation of policies. Attitudes are energy. 
    Such corporations compete with their employees, trying to get the sharpest deal for themselves. This shows they that those who run them have no idea of how to bring a corporation to great successfulness by utilizing the laws of the universe. Fact is, most of them are so steeped in management principles, they don't have a clue about what these even might be.
    Avoid corporations such as these that choose to put their employees into slavery status by paying them poverty level wages, where the employees have 'just enough' to feed themselves, cloth themselves, with a little help from the Salvation Army and Interfaith Clothing stores.(thank God for Christians), feed themselves and get back to work. Seldom is there enough earned if you work for them: hockey equipment for the kids, etc. Enough earned that is, by the employees. And what must the employees think of themselves to continue within an environment where billions that never reached employees' hands are paid in taxes. An honest corporation would allow the employees to have it and use it, where it would eventually be taxed back anyhow.
    "Everyone's life is under someone's control; it might as well be under your own so that you can direct your destiny."  ...Harry Tucker, Senior Enterprise Strategy Adviser, Microsoft.
    Crap corporations.(worthless to do good because they are greedy; so I call 'em 'greedco's).sacrifice their employees welfare in order to present a better financial bottom line. Greedy short sighted shareholders are 'tied to the same dark side stick' as those running such embarrassing corporations.
    Bonuses and stock options appear by 'management' of these types of corporations. As long as they are able to make a 'slimmer, meaner corporation' on the backs of employees earning barely enough wages to make it from one month to another, those at the top can collect their generous share.
    Often those whose efforts were 'cutting edge' in sustaining the corporation, even under much duress to do so, during corporate cuts, they are by and large bypassed. Such as it is when greed at the top rules. And then these corporations go through massive problems as the years pass on. The idiots at the top wonder why! They lack so little insight, they are unable to equate attitude with result and direction. Greed simply means that those who are greedy will later pay in ways more dear to them than money.
    Corporations such as this are most often headed by those coming out of an educational system that is also of the mass mind, where the higher Christian principles of living are not being taught.
    I've seen it often. Cuts made, the execs look good, they get amply rewarded for their 'efforts' which caused reduced wages to those workers on lower ends, and these execs hang in for a few years and then they're dumped when it's finally realized just how dumb their decisions have been and where those decisions have brought the company. Then another dude is brought in by the same 'bored' of directors, and low and behold, a few years later, bingo, same thing. Greed prevents wisdom to guide a company properly. But many 'bored' of director members, as I said, are 'tied to the same stick'. The company's future is marked for disaster.
    And then there are the many and varied corporate tricks, tricking employees into lower wages, or a 'nice' way to have them look elsewhere -Jeremiah 4:22 "For my people is foolish, they have not known me; they are sottish.(stupified by the mass mind).children, and they have none understanding: they are wise to do evil, but to do good they have no knowledge."
    Executives running such corporations lack vision thanks to those who are just as inept who brought the kingpin in; big time lacking vision -Proverbs 29:18; Ecclesiastes 5:13. The people.(the staff).often 'perish'.--
    This is madness and it's not new -Isiaiah 1:4-7; Ecclesiastes 9:3
    For ages kings and rulers have drenched the world in blood as they conquered more and more, not so that they would be able to help people, not so other people would have better opportunity to become all they could, but rather to get all they could for themselves, because they were greedy and selfish and knew nothing of the spirit in all men that they came with, the spirit that goes on forever, the spirit that enables them to think be a member of mankind, a member of one another by means of the sea of energy we all are in.
    Today corporations mimic these ancient kings and conquerors, but with dollars to lay waste the lives and hearts of millions in an insane greedy scramble to acquire increased power for control; control of employees, control of market, control of selling prices. Like the kingships of old, corporations such as these are headed in the same direction. They, like the dictators and the cruel and selfish kings will go also into a forgotten past of uselessness; uselessness because to be engaged for a perceived limited resource amount, the spirit of competition, the spirit of the struggle for the high places at the expense of others. Those running such corporations are not bright enough to have learned lessons of history, and they are short visioned by agreeing with a disproportionate distribution of corporate wealth. That's why they are not the ones with creative ideas, because the spirit of greed displaces creativity, effectively removing them from the laws of the universe that ensure what one wants for himself, he wishes for everyone, and works to that end. Wisdom has bypassed greed people because of their motivations; the bottom line takes precedence over employees producing it. These leaders in name only are headed where all the others have gone:.Proverbs 22:16.from the original."He that oppresses the poor to gain selfish advantage of the rich, puts himself into lack." Ecclesiastes 3:19.from the original."For that which befalleth the sons of men befalleth beasts, even one thing befalleth them; as the one dieth, so dieth the other; yea, they have all one breath. Man has no preeminence above a beast; this is vanity.".Solomon who wrote this verse knew that the difference between a man and a beast is beyond the physical. It's in the mind and by what ideas people allow themselves to be governed by.
    The only way to hire the proper people is to be sure that the one(s) doing the hiring is/are altruistically motivated, so that the people served by the corporation come first, so that the employees serving the public are dedicated, loyal employees who do their utmost in service. To get this type of employee, corporations need to learn from Semco, a corporation that believes that its people individually can accomplish anything, and together, accomplish more.
    A corporation is like a family and should progress toward an ideal family where everyone is helped, everyone is taught on how they can contribute more efficiently and effectively, and 'dad' shares equally with all those in it whom he knows are providing efforts to the best of their ability, as compared to 'using' his children for his own greater gain, which by and large is the norm amongst corporations still basing their corporate philosopy on 18th century management principles. Thank God many universities have moved away or are moving away from the old management techniques. Bury 'em quick! Sadly, it'll be a while before better techiniques are used by those so trained, as they won't be put in a position of influence right out of school.
    It's so important to take the time to find out what employees really feel about their jobs and the company. When employees feel that what is being done doesn't make sense it kills enthusiasm.
     Seldom are employees trusted enough.(because most management is out of touch with their pool of people, or just aloof).to use their brains.
    To increase the passion in people..the only thing that will solidly advance the corporation and hold it in a growth pattern, is to run it like Semco, and even improve upon that.
    Out of control governments fall into the same category. These are administrations with no oversight by the populace; unlike the US.(why?), and, by the way, Communism was not a government that represented, nor cared for people. It was a demonic trick to acquire and maintain control in the hands of fewer people for their selfish advantage. With fewer people at the top, there can be tighter control on others where their armies are well paid.
    How can you know who these subjugating greed motivated corporations and governments to avoid are? Ask yourself is working where you are now makes you feel like you are increasing in all areas of your life, mentally (do you have the time to gain more knowledge, not just of work, but of improving as a person), emotionally (does working there excite you or depress you?), spiritually (do you feel you are becoming a person of higher standards by working there?)
    A recent study on the minimum wage found that it was virtually impossible for those working at that level of remuneration to live even reasonably well. What'a the minimum wage in your area? Are people able to live well on it? 
    If a corporation is paying income tax instead of letting the money flow back to the government out of the hands of their employees, well then, you have a 'greedco' or 'greedgov'.(greedy corp, greedy government -Proverbs 3:31).as I like to call 'em; no doubt headed by selfish corrupt and uncaring people at the top, who concern themselves not with the long term viability of the corporation/country and its employees/citizens, but with the infamous '6 month bottom' line mentality – make it look good at each reporting period over a few years, get your bonuses for cutting costs, etc, as we have discussed above, and again, all on the backs employees through cutting their wages and/or reducing benefits – and hey, baby! You're a hero to the shareholders and other execs in 'manglement' – oh, pardon me, that's what is known as management, isn't it!
    Instead of dividing it all to the employees, apart from some retained earnings, shareholders' portion, etc., which would increase their lifestyle and benefits; doing all possible to be sure you have the happiest and best trained and best paid work force, such misdirected companies pay it up front to the fed. 
    If the employees would have first received these shared profits, they would spend a lot of it into society and all society would have benefited. From here it would eventually be taxed back to the fed anyway – duh, but you have the 'educated ignorant' choosing other ignoramuses who are selected by the board of destructors to 'lead' corporations for their own mutual selfish gain interests on the way down the road to mounting corporate problems toward eventual crippling or destruction.
    Employees are a 'dime a dozen' to these sloppy companies who just run 'em through and dump 'em later. Directors of such corporations are murderers in that they have placed themselves out and away from the blessings of God only available to those who have enough vision to walk by faith into better days for all in the country, only available to those who understand the laws of the universe which guarantee wealth. They have placed themselves into a dark path that will severely hurt the corporation, but into a path where the execs will be bought out of position later for millions of dollars, just to get rid of them. Now you see why it's imperative that employees control the company they work for. It is here than true transformational leadership can occur. Transformational leadership being defined as leadership that arouses emotion, leadership that taps into the emotional and spiritual resources of an organization. "Transformational leadership empowers people to greatly exceed their previous levels of accomplishment." ... Brian Tracy
    When the corp you work for talks of teamwork do they mean that they are the team that controls you, the employee doing the work? In many cases, of course! All a corporation does should ensure that those affected makes other lives better in some way. There is no other way to have any kind of a lasting successful endeavour. It is nature's way to rid the environment of those things out of balance.

Successful Corporation
Semco Inc. of Brazil is one of the world's most continuously successful corporations. Semco is owned by Ricardo Sempler, who is also a good educator, believing in teaching employees to use their common sense. 
    Ricardo says:."The purpose of work is not to make money. The purpose of work is to make the workers, whether working stiffs or top executives, feel good about life."

"I don't want to know where Semco is headed. It doesn't unnerve me to see nothing on the company's horizon. I want Semco and its employees to ramble through their days, to use instinct, opportunity, and ingenuity to choose projects and ventures." 

"I believe in responsibility but not in pyramidal hierarchy. I think that strategic planning and vision are often barriers to success. I dispute the value of growth. I don’t think a company's success can be measured in numbers, since the numbers ignore what the end user really thinks of the product and what the people who produce it really think of the company. I question the supremacy of talent, too much of which is as bad as too little. I’m not sure I believe that control is either expedient or desirable. I did try to reconstruct the company so that Semco could govern itself on the basis of three values: employee participation, profit sharing, and open information systems. Participation gives people control of their work, profit sharing gives them a reason to do it better, information tells them what's working and what isn't."

Semco SA, has lets its employees set the terms of their employment: hours, wages, even their office technology.
    Semco’s distinguishing feature is the utter liberation of its employees from the control of hierarchies and the rigidity of uniform rules.

There is no contest between the company that buys the grudging compliance of its work force and the company that enjoys the enterprising participation of its employees.

Traditional 18th century management practices have brought American, Canadian, and many other countries companies to where they are today, with their 'every six month bottom line' concern, disgrunted employees, selfish management practices. Many companies just do not produce the best that is possible for them to produce, and for many reasons. 
    John D. Rockefeller, industrialist said "The ability to deal with people is as purchasable a commodity as sugar or coffee and I will pay more for that ability than for any other under the sun."
    Unfortunately, often those in topmost corporate positions are devoid of insight necessary to be able to recognize such qualities. Not being humble, strong and confident themselves, when good qualities are noticed in someone, they may become jealous, avoiding the one exhibiting such admirable traits even more.
    As a result, good people under them move on because they see what idiots such corporate individuals really are. That's why there are so many people of talent  leaving corporations today. The corporation doesn't listen to them = the corporation doesn't care. Many of those in various positions of corporate responsibility are out of fragmented families with dumb ass parents. They therefor see ideas like Semco's as anathema.
    But such is the way of those in corporations lacking ability of insight; instead relying upon psychological tests, some of course which are good, but only when interpreted by someone of magnanimous character. Unfortunately in many corporations today, 'cover your ass' is becoming the criterion of prime concern.
    It's obviously time for serious change! Toyota listened! Most American companies are not humble enough to 'listen'! -Proverbs 2:15; 17:10; 12:12,15; 20:21; 21:5; 23:4; 27:20; Job 8:5-7; Proverbs 3:33. They're too damn stubborn, out of touch with reality, out of touch with their employees, too arrogant, and too selfish at the top.
    Selfishness blindfolds the one possessing it.
    Continued 18th century traditional hierarchial management practices. (and, can you believe it, they are still being taught in universities today!!!).will bring America to the breaking point. It is that serious. The Bible is a book to correct attitudes, a book for the reason we are here..learning how to feed the good, however little one may presently know, so it can grow.
    The story of the 2 dogs; one a gentle kind intelligent protective Collie; the other a raging, ravenous Pit Bull: Which one is you depends upon which one you feed.

The Bible's messages can be applied individually and corporately -Revelation chapter 18.
    But, American and Canadian, etc., corporations probably won't change..'as long as it works, why fix it' is the sound from management. They have long since left off correctly sensing the pulse of the future, because they have lost their imagination for doing the best they can for others, starting with their employees. Intuition has been replaced by greed. Greed is selfish demonic doctrine to take a person and all he touches down the river of no return.

"How can you determine what your values really are? Simple. Just observe your behaviors, especially the things you do when you are under pressure. Your values are always expressed in your actions. It is not what you say, or wish, or hope, or intend, that expresses your true values. It is only what you do. If you want to know what your values are at this moment, you can examine your recent past and notice the choices you made when you could have gone one way or another. Your choices, and your subsequent actions, demonstrated to yourself and others what was of greatest value and importance to you." ... Brian Tracy

Many large American companies have visited Semco to learn of their incredible employee loyalty and success strategies.
    At Semco the employees virtually run the company, even determining what the bosses of various departments get paid. Unusual corporate techniques are revealed in the book about them, entitled Maverick.
    Semco's unique approach is well worth reading for individuals concerned with their company's growth.
    The book is available at local libraries.

A key to creativity and thus success, is to understand how God thinks, which is shown in His mathematical design throughout His creation
    The principal of profit sharing is good. We are to share in all God has.(Psalms 8;4-6; Revelation 2:26; 3:21; 5:10).and are offered equality with Him. Should we do less on Earth for others than has been done for us? 
    Enthusiasm in the workplace is exhibited by those liking their work. Is there anything wrong with eradicating the antiquated boss/employee hierarchical system maintained today by self serving managers who presuppose that employees are more capable under 'management' than effective through enthusiasm?
    A boss who promotes and thus places such a wisdomless person over others is severely hurting his company. I've known such managers who rejoiced when the company gained an unfair advantage over a client. Rather than correct it to ensure the companies long term continuance, they broke one of the major laws of business, that of: Every time a gain is made at the disadvantage of another, one has placed himself in position for greater loss. There is never a 'gain' without equal benefit to another. 

Motivation fired by inspiration toward common goal cooperative effort, produces loyalty, innovation.(innovation comes from enthusiasm), and excellence in production. High tech comes from examining the details of how nature functions.
    The effective leader today is one who functions with contagious enthusiastic involvement and care toward all.
    Concern for others gives one power to be effective with them. Jesus cared so much for those on this Earth, He came to save them to a way they would never have found if He hadn't come. 
    The key to success is people. An old German gentleman once illustrated this to me in my younger years:."If you removed all the people off the Earth, nothing would have value.".Without people, there is no value to anything; so engage your efforts into getting good at appreciating and caring for and investing in the most important asset around – others.

The proven less effective 1000+ year old 'force fed from the top' esoteric religious style hierarchical management system based upon erroneous-assumptions of men then that thought they understood Biblical principles, belongs in a 'musileum'.(a place to bury such ancient anthropological-artifacts). Anyone using it today displays ineptitude, soon showing on a company's bottom line. 
    If one is 'locked in' for various reasons with a company that follows such horrendous management principles, one should be honest and content with his wages while seeking alternative avenues for work. get out quick. You'll never go anywhere good with a corp such as this. 
    A wise man generally gives other people's opinions about as much weight as he does his own! Counsel with others before making a decision -Proverbs 11:14; 15:22; 24:6.

Wally Buono, CFL record of 110 wins, former Head Coach of the Calgary Stampeders Football Team knows about a relationship with God:."If you asked me today if I'm a religious person, I'd say no, because religion a lot of times is tradition. It's repetition, it's do's and don'ts. But the word of God doesn't talk about that; it talks about a relationship, a personal intimate relationship, just like you would have with your children or your wife or someone you care for. I have spiritual beliefs. Whether you believe or not isn't important; it's whether I believe. It's important to be complete, and I can't be complete if all I do is work, if all I think about is gaining possessions, if I think about myself only. Does that mean I'm perfect? No. Am I going to make mistakes? Definitely. It's a process. Fine gold doesn't become fine unless it's refined. But I know today that I can face my challenges knowing I have an inner spirit that's there and that's real.....continues
