Leadership Minute: The Joy of Generosity


Albert Schweitzer said, “Do something for somebody every day for which you do not get paid.” When was the last time you did something for someone with no expectation of what you would receive in return? It is perhaps one of the great joys of leadership. Today’s leadership challenge is to sow seeds of generosity by performing random acts of kindness. It can be a kind word to stranger in the hallway or a hand-written thank you note to a colleague for a job well done. The old adage is true – people don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.
