R RECOGNITION= while reading through shaman’s book zen of social marketing i was surprised to learn that people are on social media not to connect to others but to be known. they are there to display what the have, their talents, and their prowess. this the informs social entrepreneurs the position of recognition in a human being.
E-EMPOWERMENT- until we discover the talents and capabilities within us we will continue to sit and complain of what somebody is not doing for us. building peoples capacity is the only way we can get ourselves out of poverty hunger and unemployment.if many of our campanies took the task of helping others to discover themselves,social problems will be a thing of the past.

partinering- the world structures are rpidly changing from push error where you will follow certain structures strictly without deviating. this era was characterized by the C.E.O and directors having the final say. However things have drastically changed to pull era whe you use the ACT(Atract-Convert-Transform) model.you will never force somebody to do something but get that person to contribute like a co-owner of what you are doing
E-EXPECTATION- what are the expectation of your people unless we know what we are expecting we will never make a slight change. we should learn on how to control our expectation
