Leadership Excellence Essentials;Jul2008, Vol. 25 Issue 7, p17
The author highlights the importance of relationships for leaders. She explains that when people of different cultures interact, they tend to perceive the other as irrational or selfish and cites that former British prime minister Winston Churchill and former U.S. president Franklin Roosevelt were able to build a relationship which led to forming an alliance against German dictator Adolf Hitler. She states that relational perspective helps one create relationships that bring out the best in people while the either/or perspective makes the opposite.
