I recently read a wonderful thought from the Dalai Lama. He said that companies are living, complex organisms - not profit making machines. Therefore, profit shouldn't be the object of a company, but rather a result of good work. Just like a person can't survive for long without food and water, a company can't survive without profits - but no one would ever reduce the purpose and significance of human life to only eating and drinking.
Servant Leaders know that financial success is a byproduct of how their people and their customers are treated.
