There and Enough

Story

Starting a business means sleepless nights, unpredictability, capital burn, and the threat of competition. Why then would the leaders of a new venture rusk moving to a country with an unproven tech work force?

Sonny Vu and Christy Trang Le, the husband and wife co-founders of Misfit Wearables, have had their faith tested as entrepreneurs. But relying on their faith, they helped build up a company founded on servant leadership, as well as Vietnam’s emerging R&D talent.

Guided Reflection

Reflecting on the Story

  • How does Sonny Vu understand servant leadership?
  • Is the culture of Misfit Wearables the kind of organizational culture you would enjoy working within? Why or why not?

Connecting to your Work

  • If you are/were a supervisor, what steps can you take to make work more meaningful for employees?

Personal Application

  • Misfit is located in Vietnam and seeks to build community in the country where Sonny and Christy were born and that suffers from lack of opportunity. Where is your community and how can you use your work to influence it for good?

Heavenly Father, thank you for the work you are doing at Misfit Wearables. Thank you for the example of servant leadership Sonny and Christy display. May you inspire me to impart your values in my daily work to help me build relationships with everyone around me. Amen.
