Love in the Workplace
"The Bible exhorts us to love our neighbors. But what about our colleagues? Do we really need to love the people we work with?" Dr. Paul Zak on why love is essential in the workplace.
"Love is not a squishy concept that gives us a warm, fuzzy feeling. Love is something revealed and expressed through actions. You experience love through what people do, not what they say. I love you when I care for you, even when caring is difficult. That is the experience I want when I fly or shop. ... This approach seems to work for me as an organization leader: reveal love and hope that it will be reciprocated. It usually is. I ask all those who work for me how what they are doing now will lead them to a new job. Even if they never move, I want them to know they always can, and that I support this because I care for them, and want what’s best for them. I don’t think it’s an accident that few of my employees have left."
