Is There a Place for Love in Leadership?

“A company is stronger if bound by love than by fear,” the late Herb Kelleher, co-founder, CEO and Chairman of Southwest Airlines, once said. When Kip Tindell, retired co-founder and Chairman of The Container Store, first heard Kelleher’s bold declaration more than 40 years ago he was, in his own words, “completely taken by it.” In Tindell’s book, Uncontainable, he describes how he and his leadership team went on to shape The Container Store’s “employee first” culture in ways that reflect love. ...

"Uptown has money to effect change. There are a lot of conservative people up there and limousine liberals, or ‘gauche caviar,’ as they say in Paris."

"I mean, I think it would be totally crazy to say I’m not [gauche caviar]; it would be completely bananas to look at my life and say I’m not gauche caviar. I will say I never feel like I’ve made it. I come from nowhere and come from nothing. I grew up shopping at T.J. Maxx in Lincoln, Nebraska. But I’ve learned to make fun of myself. The absurdity of this is a $380 sweater and it’s hand-embroidered and that’s what it is."'Rachelle Hruska MacPherson, founder of Lingua Franca, a company that sells...

Strategy, Symbolism, and Your Career

--> For several decades, Kaiser Permanente, a large HMO based in Oakland, California, has spent tens of millions of dollars annually advertising on television, in magazines, and various other media.  Kaiser, like other HMOs, traditionally promoted itself with the sorts of images you’d expect: a doctor treating a happy patient, a group of smiling doctors, and so forth.  A Kaiser advertisement generally also spoke about the quality and number of its doctors. For just about every HMO out there, thi...

Out of Step

I spent the weekend thinking about two men whose lives and ministries stayed out of step with our times. Fred Rogers Fred Rogers I finally got around to watching Won’t You Be My Neighbor? It’s a documentary about Fred Rogers, the quirky children’s television star who created and starred in Mister Roger’s Neighborhood from 1968 to 2001. Behind his quirkiness, Fred Rogers held to fierce theological convictions: the importance of love, the dignity of every human being, and the value of ch...

Aly Raisman: "Child Sexual Abuse Isn't A Kid Problem, It's An Adult Problem"

On Monday, Aly Raisman wrote a powerful op-ed for the Boston Globe about child sexual abuse, specifically, how the stigma associated with it can impact children from a young age. Raisman, a three-time gold medal Olympic gymnast, was one of the most outspoken survivors to come forward about Larry Nassar's abuse, and has become an advocate for sexual assault survivors in addition to a role model for young athletes.It has been almost a year since Raisman first publicly spoke up about Nassar's abus...

A Better Kind of Love

I thought of D.A. Carson at a U2 concert last week. U2’s concert began and ended with love. “Love and love is all we have left, The only thing that can be kept” Bono sang before we could even see him. The second last song returned to the same theme: “Love is bigger than anything in its way.” It’s a powerful theme, especially in contrast to hatred. A video montage in the middle of the concert displayed scenes of racism and hatred. The tension broke as the scenes showed scenes from the Martin Luth...

Is the “Silent Killer” Sabotaging Your Performance?

Is your energy level lower than you’d like? Do you feel you’re not performing at the top of your game? Are you so busy that it has crowded out time to truly connect with trusted confidants? If the answer to these questions is “yes,” you may be suffering from the effects of the “silent killer” of individuals, and it may also be holding back your performance and the performance of your organization.  Recent research by Cigna, the insurance company, found that more than half of Americans are lon...

Beyond what we've come to associate with Balmain — embroidery, shoulder pads, the Kardashians — includes a more humble story that's often overshadowed or untold. Olivier Rousteing, the 31-year old Bordeaux-born, Paris-raised designer has come a long way from being orphaned at birth. At 24, he became the youngest creative director since Yves Saint Laurent to be appointed to the helm of a French fashion house, and has transformed the legacy of it in under a decade. In the past seven years, the mi...

Anti-Beatitudes: A “Blessedness” of Death

Guest post by David Barker, professor at Heritage Seminary in Cambridge, ON In U2’s most recent album Songs of Experience, the band bridges two songs “Get Out of Your Own Way” and “American Soul” with what best could be called “anti-beatitudes.” The lyrics are: Blessed are the arrogant, For theirs is the kingdom of their own company. Blessed are the superstars, For the magnificence in their light We understand better our own insignificance. Blessed are the filthy rich, For you can only truly own...

How U2’s Extraordinary Team Culture Helps the Band Thrive

This week U2 releases its 14th studio album, “Songs of Experience.” The band has had a phenomenal run since it came together in the mid-1970s. U2 is composed of four band members: lead singer Bono, lead guitar player “Edge,” bass guitar player Adam Clayton and drummer Larry Mullen, Jr. The band members have known each other since they were teenagers in Dublin, Ireland. In its early days it was not unusual for the band to be booed and laughed at. The wonder is that U2 has gone on to receive a re...

Kirsten Gillibrand Is Taking On Sexual Harassment In Congress

What many people have learned after the Harvey Weinstein scandal is that sexual assault and harassment happen everywhere, not just in Hollywood. Most recently, the Associated Press spoke with four female lawmakers who allege they've been harassed by fellow members of Congress, some of whom are still in office. These stories are why Senator Kirsten Gillibrand is doing something about sexual harassment on Capitol Hill.On November 3, the New York senator proposed comprehensive legislation that wou...

Women In Congress Report Sexual Harassment By Colleagues

But when the congressman approached her on the House floor and told her he’d been thinking about her in the shower, she’d had enough.She confronted the man, who she said still serves in Congress, telling him his comments were demeaning and wrong. And he backed off.Bono, who served 15 years before being defeated in 2012, is not alone.As reports flow almost daily of harassment or...

4 Parsi women on their most precious heirloom jewellery and the stories they

A piece of jewellery is more than just an accessory; it is a record of a time, a mood, of lives and loves. And heirloom jewellery, handed lovingly down, is a veritable archive of a family’s history. ELLE asked four women belonging to Mumbai’s Parsi community—characterised as it is by a sense of nostalgia and antiquity—to let us into their personal stories by way of their most precious jewels (some of them nearly 200 years old). To complement these precious pieces, the ladies wore traditional, ha...

Where the streets have no statues: why do the Irish hate U2?

They’re bigger than Guinness and George Bernard Shaw. So why are Bono and co so unloved in their home country?For three decades U2 have filled the world’s biggest stadiums as easily as guitarist The Edge fits his trademark black beanie hat. The group’s cultural reach is as wide as the 200-ton arachnid-shaped stage they once performed their mammoth shows on. As an Irish export, they’re in the same category as George Bernard Shaw and Guinness.If another country produced the biggest guitar band in ...

On the 40th anniversary of Annie Hall 's release, I wish I could issue a gushing plea for everyone to revisit this classic film about two New Yorkers groping their way into (and out of) a relationship. I’d like to praise the sprightly and scatterbrained character of Annie Hall (Diane Keaton): her sunglasses worn indoors like a way-cooler Bono, her reckless driving, her fear of spiders and love of photography. Or rave about Annie Hall ’s inventive narrative structure, disrupting the traditional ...

15 Irish Bands To Listen To On St. Patrick's Day Instead of U2

Steven Dewall/Redferns via Getty Images. Two things about St. Patrick's Day: Everyone is Irish, and most people are pretty annoying. Since no one remembers what the holiday is actually about (each year we Google; each year we forget), March 17 has become an excuse to wear tacky green T-shirts and drink to excess, often to the strains of U2's greatest hits. Guinness tastes great with "Beautiful Day" and "Where the Streets Have No Name," but Bono and Co. aren't the only Irish musicians worth b...

“How To Survive A Plague,” And 9 Documentary Films To Commemorate World AIDS Day

World AIDS Day arrives December 1, marking 28 years of raising awareness for people with HIV. Bill Clinton became the first president to commemorate and recognize the event in 1995.
