Jeff Skoll talks about the Global Treasure Award past awardees, and says, "This year, we had hoped to bestow our Global Treasure Award on someone who exemplifies fierce compassion like no other....His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso.

"There are so many things I'd love to say if the Dalai Lama were here today....His Holiness has written more than 100 books, including one called "The Leaders' Way" and in it he talks about...right intentions, right actions...which ...can contribute throughout an organization to its success." Hear the rest, above.
