“If you love your family, love your work” emphasized Fr. Nestor Caber, one of the facilitators of the recollection. It is fit not just to FICCO employees but all people in service as well. Reliable human models are needed to advocate on becoming good leaders, dignified and committed.
Indeed it has been a big help for the employees to reflect that despite the circumstances and temptations along the way. The story of the Good Shepherd will also serve as a motivation not just to the company leaders, but to the subordinates as well to work with love and dignity just like the way the Good Shepherd led his flocks to the right path. We might get lost at times, but must always open our eyes and hearts back to the right path of our lives and commitment. Shepherd leadership is not just on doing things in a certain way, but a fully integrated life of thinking, doing and being as a disciple of Christ.
