Howard’s leadership philosophy is simple: lead from a life of generosity, living with an open hand and an open heart. Be generous with your time, with words of praise, and with your money. Be generous by recognizing the effort others have contributed to your success and to your organization’s success. Be generous when blame must be placed by accepting the responsibility on you as the leader. Be generous when conflict arises by being a catalyst for healing and reconciliation. Be generous with resources entrusted to you, whether they are organizational or personal. Be generous when mistakes are made and resources are lost by seeing the person and not the cost of the resource.
