The Importance of a Compassionate Attitude

Such wise words from the Dalai Lama. I wish more on-paper-leaders such as someone i know, can have enlightenment on the values of such attitude, instead of just focusing and glorifying on their hard skills.

Sometimes i wonder, how can someone who doesn't motivate nor empower his people, someone with no consistency in his actions and words, no integrity, makes disrespectful, sexually discriminatory and bullying remarks, someone who looks at things through telescopic lens, acts secretive instead of being open and above board, likes bossing people around and generally having no EQ be made a leader. It greatly appalls me. It is dangerous when people who lack character, wisdom and leadership qualities are given powers to lead.

Anyway, i am just thankful that i don't have to work for such people and my past few bosses had generally been great bosses to work for. :)
