Guide Passion with Love and Wisdom

Guiding Passion to Success
Guiding Passion to Success with Love and Wisdom

It seems to me that while having a passion is essential to business success, not all passions are created equal. Some are more wholesome than others. Passion without Love and Wisdom is like a locomotive without a track to guide it. Love guides our passion and creativity to what is profitable for both the organization and its people.         Arlen Pauler

Defining Love for Business Success

Each of us sharing our experiences and thoughts about how Love leads to business success.

Under Construction – Love Defined

 

We updated our Love Defined page and wanted to share the current state of our understanding with you, our readers.

By sharing your insights and reactions, you become a part of this on-going journey of discovery about the nature of Love and its role in the success of business.

 

What do we mean by the word Love and what does it have to do with business success?

From our hands-on experience working in the business environment, we have come to the following explanation of Love and the role it plays in the success or failure of business organizations.

In its most basic definition:

Love is a heartfelt commitment to the well-being of a person, place, or thing.

It is the power that is released when we allow ourselves to truly care about what is good and wholesome for ourselves and others.

So what does this have to do with business? In the business environment, Love takes the form of real commitment to the Well-Being of the organization and its people, and the fulfillment of their mission. The presence of Love in the work place stirs authentic interest in customer happiness, the desire to help each other grow professionally and personally, and a passion for the success of the organization.

To that end, Love in the business environment provides the passion, creativity, and courage for more effective communication and collaborative team work, and a driving desire for all things vital to business success, including corporate social responsibility.

Making Love an integral part of the way business is done is certainly much easier said than done. However, meeting the challenges inherent in bringing the power of Love into business is the very reason we have established this blog: to share the results of our hands-on experiences in the real work environment, and to provide a platform for our readers to share the knowledge they have gained from the practice of Love in their Life at work.

Together we can make a difference that truly matters.

Hope and the Art of Love in Business

cropped-Lone-Cypress-Cropped-3.jpg

While it is not all that apparent, what Dalai Lama shares here about hope is a key part of the ‘Art of Love is Good Business’.

When we look at our Life at work through the lens of Love, we can see hope we would otherwise not see. With hope we have the courage to look through the lens of Love. Love and hope are traveling companions.

When Love and hope shape the way we Live our Life at work, we build strength of character and joy; and a better way to do business.

 

“The very purpose of our life is happiness, which is sustained by hope. We have no guarantee about the future, but we exist in the hope of something better. Hope means keeping going, thinking, ‘I can do this.’ It brings inner strength, self-confidence, the ability to do what you do honestly, truthfully and transparently.”

WHY EMPLOYEE OPINION SURVEYS ARE STILL ESSENTIAL WORKPLACE TOOLS

Surveys are great tools for mining the riches of information within employees; they will always be essential. Turning to employees to hear what they have to say is the first step of wise leadership and smart planning. However, there lies within the people of any organization much more than just raw information about where they are coming from that surveys retrieve. There is a treasure trove of passion, creativity, and courage to succeed that can be harnessed only through personal rapport and camaraderie; a deeper Human connection built on mutual trust and caring.
In this quality of work environment there is a team spirit that makes continuous improvement conversations an ordinary part of the work day and strategic tools like surveys soar in their effectiveness.There is an under lying attitude to this quality of team environment; one of caring about each other as Human Beings; dare I even say a Love for each other’s well-being as team mates. This is why ‘The Art of Love is Good Business’.

At the heart of ‘The Art of Love is Good Business’ is looking at our work with Love and reverence.

Persue some path, however narrow and crooked, in which you can walk with love and reverence.
