Leadership and Love

It’s Holy Week, a good time to talk about love. Love is something we don’t usually talk about on this blog, or in connection with leadership. But we should.

A little boy was labeled mentally-retarded, and then grew up to be a CEO. He credits “selfless love.”

Selfless love invisibly supports people. It pulls them toward the potential within themselves. Selfless love is patient; it gives space; it allows people to become as great as they can be.

As a motivational speaker, I attend a lot of leadership conferences. Nobody talks about love. (Maybe they are afraid of lawsuits? Who knows.) So I was amazed when Lester Strong told me this story.
