Love – intelligent commitment, always from the heart
“I love my work.” “I love my team.” “I love the business I’m in.” Suddenly it sounds less weird, right? In my experience, the biggest ‘tell’ in a business that’s failing to meet its potential is the absence of love. If love is central to our lives, why do we deny its importance in our relationship to work?
Great leaders create the conditions for the emergence of love through practices and behaviors that foster respect, trust, honesty, compassion and generosity. Ask yourself: do the people around you love the business they are in? Do you? It may not be quite all you need, but without the commitment it brings, you’ll never fly.
From me, you’ll get intelligent commitment that’s always from the heart.
