Life - a characteristic that distinguishes things that have self-sustaining process from those that do not.  

Successful business leaders will likely tell you that one of the key to unlocking potential is a combination of clear communication, active engagement, and continuous learning.  How a culture integrates and supports business’s intentions, plans, and strategies can be as important as the actions themselves.
