From Forbes: Let love inspire your leadership.
Valentine’s Day is coming up, which means that love is in the air. Unfortunately, it’s not in the air, or culture, or anywhere else at too many companies. Which is not only a shame, it’s very shortsighted.
Why? Because leading with love is a winning leadership and employee engagement strategy on many levels.
