Developing a Sense of Honor

One of the nice surprises that I experienced during the interviews I conducted for my book came when the leaders I was talking with used the term ‘honor’ as a way of describing how it felt to be a leader. What was surprising was the way they were using that term – not to describe an external experience of honor, or an award, they had received because of the position they held, but to describe how they felt personally, internally, about their work. It is a profound distinction in orientation that I believe is at the heart of what makes a trustworthy leader so effective in his/her role.

Creating Yours: Show Employees Some Love

It’s February 14th and if that date doesn’t ring a bell, you must live under a rock. It’s Valentine’s day! Time for saccharine sentiments and sugar highs as you celebrate the presence of love or mourn the absence of romance! Sure, its detractors may call it a “fabricated” holiday, but so is Mother’s Day for that matter,though I’ve yet to encounter a mom who’s said, “Aw, you don’t have to do anything special for me, it’s just a made-up holiday!”
