Randy Lewis, a former senior vice president of Walgreens, is the author of the highly inspirational book, No Greatness Without Goodness: How a Father's Love Changed a Company and Sparked a Movement. The book isn't only exceptional reading for business leaders who want their companies to become more efficient and profitable, but it also provides nuggets of wisdom and real life lessons for people who have the desire to build stronger and more meaningful relationships with those around them: friends, neighbors and coworkers.
Lewis and his wife, Kay, have three children. Their middle child, a son named Austin, has autism. During a speech in front of 5,000 Walgreens store managers at a conference in Las Vegas, he shared that "nearly 70 percent of individuals with disabilities and 95 percent of people with severe cognitive disabilities, like Austin, would never hold down a job."
This is not because people with disabilities cannot do the work, it's because many employers fail to realize that hiring people with disabilities will actually increase the overall performance among all of their employees. more >>
