There’s a famous quote from the grizzled football coach Vince Lombardi.
“I don’t necessarily have to like my players and associates. But as their leader, I must love them. Love is loyalty. Love is teamwork. Love respects the dignity of the individual. This is the strength of any organization.”
Love is important.
Vince talks about it from an organizational standpoint, and from a people standpoint.
It’s about respect.
And when you show respect to people, you demonstrate that you care about them
And in return, they will show you loyalty.
Not because they have to, but because they want to.
Because you know what?
They will love you in return.
