Zen Zone #38

Giving freely of oneself without any expectation of recieving something in return is at the core of all the world's greatest teachings.  The enlightened leader exhibits a giving and generous spirit, and this attitude is the antithesis of greed, possessiveness, and selfishness.

Look at any great leader, great in the sense of respect, love, and honor, and you can see these traits in their everyday being.  Exhibiting magnamimity, allowing subordinates to grow, trusting them to reach forward, and gently correcting their mistakes provides an atmosphere of learning and encourages people to take chances.
