Without This Principle, Your Leadership Has No Foundation

Dr. Steve Greene (Sean Roberts)

"My philosophy is: Tough on standards. Soft on people." —Dr. Steve Greene

Love in the workplace? Love in leadership? "What's love got to do with it?" Tina Turner famously asked.

Everything, says Dr. Steve Greene, publisher and executive vice president of Charisma Media. If we're a Christ-follower, love is the basis for everything we do. And if we have just one person following us, then we are a leader, regardless of our age, our role or where that is: work, home, church or school. And in order for us to be a God-honoring leader, the first requirement is to love as Christ loves us.

Then our leadership will have a solid foundation. The motivation of our leadership will be well-rooted and well-directed. Romans 13:8a (NLT) directs us to "Owe nothing to anyone—except for your obligation to love one another."

Hear more about Dr. Greene's story, and his leadership based in love philosophy. Find out why his book was labeled "controversial" by the press, how pastors are reacting to his message (surprisingly) and how the faith community is being reshaped with his podcast network, new Charisma magazine and latest book, Love Leads.

And we're asking: Is your leadership based in love?
