This is an excellent, short article on how love is central to good leadership. We don’t often think about how love has a place in the workforce, but a growing body of research is showing that it creates a better work environment (no surprise there) and increases performance. It is also better for your own career if you are guided by good will toward others (= love), as Tim Sanders showed in his landmark book Love is the Killer App.
And, beyond that, it is the right thing to do.
The big take-away from this article is: “Highly effective leaders use love and discipline to elevate others.”
Leadership as a way of elevating others, not yourself. That is a very biblical idea.
It is the leadership application of the Golden Rule.
