Episode 32: The Trial Of Henry Blake
There is a story told by Jesus about a man who was beaten and robbed on the highway. Three people passed by this man, but the only one who stopped to help him was culturally considered to be his enemy. This twist in the story was a stumbling block to the religious leaders in the audience who were consumed by their own self-righteousness. Whatever our context of leadership, there is a common humanity that transcends religious, cultural, political and economic boundaries. We must guard our hearts against anything that would compromise human compassion for competitive advantage or corporate elitism. The ability to care beyond boundaries is a core character quality essential to effective leadership.
