Grace is our path to comity, civility and compassion. Grace is a catalyst for the “greater good” at work, at home and in our communities. Grace is a clarion call for the goodness in the world around us as well as a practical guide to implementing grace in your own life. My book, “GRACE: A Leader’s Guide for a Better Us,” tells the stories of women and men making a positive difference in our world by devoting themselves to serving as agents of positive change. GRACE is also an acronym representing five attributes: • G is for generosity, the will to do something more for others. • R is respect, the dignity of life and work. • A is action, the mechanism for change. • C is compassion, the concern for others. • E is energy, the spirit that catalyzes us. Each attribute is distinct but each works with the others to make the notion of grace something that is tangible and therefore actionable.
