In our research at the Secretan Center we asked people what they felt were the characteristics of ineffective relationships, whether at home or at work, in politics, religion, academia, or in our marriages, or among our families and friends. The results showed that people were typically turned off by others who were not courageous, authentic, serving, truthful, loving, and effective. It made no difference whether they were CEOs, stay-at-home moms, politicians, firefighters, or athletes—or whether they came from different countries and cultures.
It was a short intellectual leap towards the observation that the opposites of these limiting deficiencies—lack of courage, authenticity, truthfulness, lovingness and effectiveness, and the failure to serve—would describe the proficiencies of an inspiring leader. This is how the CASTLE® Principles were born.
The acronym CASTLE® stands for Courage, Authenticity, Service, Truthfulness, Love, and Effectiveness. When fully lived, these six principles are the path to becoming free from living small, uninspiring lives.
