Asset or Resource?

Growing%20Plant

People are not assets. Assets are used for a purpose. The problem is that once you spend them they are gone. We all have those people on our list we are saving for the really big favor: Middle school boys Sunday school. They will say yes but we know we can’t ask every year and we don’t want to use that commodity until it’s a last resort.

Seeing people as a resource is a very different approach. The idea is that people are capable of development. Instead of using them up doing tasks we should view the tasks as serving the growth and gifts of people. The organization that wastes its greatest resource solely on projects and programs will find it runs out assets. Proper care, development and management of people as resources will see an increase that will continue to bear fruit.
