“It’s about who you are, how you live, and your
ability to influence others to change things for
the better — at work and beyond.”
It’s time to toss aside the touchy-feely notions of love in business and recognize the real power it holds. Love is not only appropriate in the context of business, it’s the foundation of great leadership, and, therefore, the very foundation of a thriving, competitive enterprise. When love is part of an organization’s framework and operationalized in its culture, employees and customers feel genuinely valued.

Because of this, we can be quite cynical and I always hold my breath when we bring in a presenter. Steve was great! He researched the situation well and applied many of his lessons to our specific circumstance and situation. It was a pleasure to have him address our first new PSAV National Leadership Meeting.
Your message of Extreme Leadership was directly on-target and inspired the entire group. Your mix of humor and emotion, together with the relevance of the topic to our situation at General Mills, kept the audience captivated. Thanks again for a great day and a compelling message. We will all remember the key message that you delivered and its importance to our everyday life both at work and home: 'Do what you love in the service of people who love what you do.
