In The Leadership Experience (2008, p.152-3) Richard Daft writes: “Leaders who lead with love have extraordinary influence because they meet five unspoken employee needs:
Hear and understand me.
Even if you disagree with me, please don’t make me wrong.
Acknowledge the greatness within me.
Remember to look for my loving intentions.
Tell me the truth with compassion.”
Love is a powerful motivator. Love is an action. Love is a feeling.
