Cheryl Esposito welcomes Dr. Stuart Lord, President of Naropa University at Boulder, Colorado. Naropa is a liberal arts institution dedicated to advancing contemplative education by integrating the best of eastern & western traditions.
Stuart’s leadership roles include Dartmouth & DePauw Universities, & executive director of the 1997 President’s Summit for America’s Future, working under General Colin Powell in the Clinton administration. DIGNITY. Stuart Lord is an optimist. HONOR. He sees possibility. RESPECT. He believes we can do more, be more. LOVE. Of his University he says: “We are too good not to be better. Focus on being better.” GENEROSITY.
In order to lead others, one must give to others their dignity. One must honor them as a human being. Respect and love them for all of their potential. And be generous in one’s view of them and in offering them opportunity.
But first, says Stuart, we must learn to give all of that to ourselves. We must live it. If we do not, we can never be fully alive and give it to others. Join Cheryl Esposito & Dr. Stuart Lord as they explore the cornerstones of leadership!
