According To The Laws Of Our World

laitman_566_02Question: How should a manager of a business relate to the laborers who work under him? Are they really like his children or his brothers, or are they like parts of his soul?

Answer: I don’t have a code of conduct that would determine how a manager should relate to his employees. He must act according to the laws of the world, according to what his superiors demand of him; otherwise, he will not be the manager; he would get fired.

On the one hand, a manager must look at the laborers and workers as his subordinates or they will not carry out the tasks that have been placed before them. On the other hand, if he has the power and the authority, he must take care of them as much as possible. But this has nothing to do with the wisdom of Kabbalah.

Question: Do people who have been studying Kabbalah for a long time want to know how to relate to subordinates? Do they need to relate to them internally with love and concern, but in an exacting manner externally?

Answer: What we learn in Kabbalah is relevant only to a group of Kabbalists who want to realize the advice of the wisdom of Kabbalah. The members of a group can adapt this advice only with the members of the group and perhaps also in the family to the extent that the family fully agrees to this and goes along with the person in this way.

I would recommend not trying to apply the wisdom of Kabbalah at work, with family and relatives, in fitness clubs, or in other places that a person visits. In addition, it is not worthwhile to try to convince anyone to act according to the laws of the wisdom of Kabbalah.

Question: I have been managing a business for 15 years. I explore and study the motivation and psychology of employees. The employees of students of Kabbalah understand that we are different from other managers, and the attitude of the staff is very confident, but spiritual questions don’t interest them at all.

Answer: They don’t need to be interested in spiritual questions. It is possible to soften the atmosphere a bit among the staff through friendship, but no more than this.

In no way should we overemphasize involvement with the wisdom of Kabbalah at work.
