The Heart of Great Leadership Is Love

Robert Clancy writes, “Great leaders may be found at the top of a mountain looking back upon their challenges, but the greatest leaders are often found at the foot of that mountain still helping others reach the summit.” Leading with love means it is not about the leader, it is always about people. It is about selflessly and unconditionally serving them: believing in them that they come to see the greatness in themselves; caring, respecting and valuing them for their beautiful uniqueness in all that they are and do; being there for them when they need someone.

Peter Drucker said, “Only three things happen naturally in organizations: friction, confusion, and underperformance. Everything else requires leadership.” John Maxwell adds to this writing, “Needless to say, you can love people without leading them, but you cannot lead people without loving them.” May you live your leadership greatness knowing always that love is the answer. Love is the heart of great leadership. May your love be that beautiful inspiration and motivation in someone’s life that they become more than they ever dreamed they could be… and more… so much more.

Have a beautiful and wondrous day and a magnificent week!!!
