Be Bold, Be A Leader, Be loving, August 26, 2009
How do you inspire others to go above and beyond the call of duty? How do you motivate others to make sacrifices — BOTH personal and business — for their and others' long-term good? How do you motivate colleagues and friends to encourage others to support their vision and goals? John Hope Bryant does it a revolutionary way; with boldness, empathy and love.
This book was life changing for me and I would highly recommend it to anyone who has struggled with the challenges above. Once you pick it up you won't be able to put it down, but when you do you will be equipped with information — presented in jargon-free prose — that will impact your life and provide you with unvaluable tools. Love Leadership is, I believe, an unprecedented and groundbreaking approach to the science of leading.
Respect for the unconditional protection of the dignity of the individual is how you get there. Treat others with respect and you'll get respect. Love others, and they will love you back, and just as in any other relationship, it makes everything else work.
One of the many takeaways that I got from Love lEADERSHIP is that we as leaders should set aside the old stuff and let loving principles guide our style.
Please read this book…and pick one up for someone you love. They will love you back!
