Barbara was my guest today on Jonathan Manske's Inevitable Success Radio Show. Our topic was: How Play Makes You Successful. This fabulous show is archived at www.realcoachingradio.com/node/69
This quote comes from Scrooge when he is with the Ghost of Christmas Past and has a realization about the impact we can have on each other.
"He has the power to render us happy or unhappy; to make our service light or burdensome; a pleasure or a toil. Say that his power lies in words and looks; in things so slight and insignificant that it is impossible to add and count them up; what then? The happiness he gives is quite as great as if it cost a fortune."
Quoted from Scrooge in A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, 1907
What a great take on leadership - the power to render happy or unhappy - This would apply to leadership at work, at home, in the community . . .
When we play and are playful we contribute to all those around us.
Wishing you great joy and success,
