Leadership is about love—who you love, what you love, why you love, and how you love. Loving leadership manifests itself in many ways—from small acts of courage and kindness to inspiring speeches and defining decisions—but a common denominator remains the same: service to others. Leadership, by definition, is not about you. It’s about who you serve and how. Ditch the iron-fist, top-down leadership paradigm. True leaders are servant-leaders who live in a world of we, not me. They are selfless, self-sacrificial, and relentlessly attentive to ways they can add value to others—they lead with love.
“You are not here merely to make a living. You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourself if you forget the errand.”
- Woodrow Wilson, 28th President of the United States
