love thursday 12.01.10 ~ fundamental need for love


Our life depends on others so much that at the root of our existence is a fundamental need for love. That is why it is good to cultivate an authentic sense of responsibility and concern for the welfare of others.

HH Dalai Lama

We all need to be loved, but we also need to love. Both are fundamental needs. That's why businesses that do good also do well.

As we evolve, we see that profit isn't enough. Our work has to have meaning to keep us engaged and one thing all businesses have in common is relationships--within the company, with customers, with vendors.

I want to work with businesses of all sizes to help them bring their values to the forefront of their enterprise. Treating all of these relationships with respect and love and compassion will bring success...for all parties involved.

Happy Love Thursday, Everyone!

I just went along with you. Didn't even notice it was the wrong day. :-)

What a lovely goal for you to have - a worthy job of work. One of my biggest frustrations with education has always been how poorly it treats the adults on whose backs and hearts the whole system depends.

It's okay, Wanda. Every day should be Love Thursday anyway!

Oh yes. So they give more than lipservice to the human side of things. So they begin to see the value to their bottom line.

That shoe company, Zappos?, just acquired by someone bigger, had that attitude. They grew phenomenally--not a word I use frequently.

Kathryn,

That's true about zappos.com being acquired by amazon.com. However, we don't know yet what that means to how business is delivered. According to Tony Hsieh, zappos.com will be allowed to continue business as usual. Of course, we won't know for sure whether that will happen until it all plays out. Here's hoping.
