In this episode, Dean Newlund and Jonathan Kayser discuss:

  • The reason and motivation of Jonathan’s shift into selfless service
  • Why you should start serving other people and how it’s related to your own personal success.
  • The blurred line between selflessness and selfishness – how selflessness can truly bring happiness
  • One of the greatest needs in the workplace: selfless leadership


Key Takeaways:

  • It takes time to reinvent yourself, that’s why not a lot of people do it – but don’t let that stop you
  • Be genuine. People can often smell the difference of someone who serves sincerely and someone who just pretends
  • If you actually do pour yourself in the love and service of others, you can create extraordinary success.
  • What creates the most happiness in a person is being of service to others
  • At the end of the day, what creates the most happiness in human beings, is being of service to others.  

“This is a business strategy for me… if you love people, if you serve people, if you help people… you can be successful” —  Jonathan Kayser
