Love it. The world’s second richest man, Warren Buffett, just earmarked over $30 Billion to donate to the charity of the world’s richest man, Bill Gates, and his wife Melinda. Social responsibility is alive and well. There is hope. On our small planet.
The New Breed of Leaders understand that there’s nothing wrong with making money. They get that building a highly profitable (and excellent) organization is part of the great game of business (and definitely one way to keep score). But they also appreciate that with rewards comes responsibility. And so they work hard to build an enterprise that is good. And honorable. And makes a positive difference in this world we are stewards of.
So gigantic kudos to Warren Buffett. And to Bill and Melinda Gates (whose foundation is making important strides in the war against HIV and malaria). And to all those other leaders who not only take care of themselves but use their gifts to elevate others. You inspire us. And you make a difference.
