Love Works is a framework for successful leadership. It outlines a counterintuitive but proven path to success through a passionate and motivated workforce. The mainstay of this philosophy is leading with love, which relies on seven time-proven - but unfortunately not-so-often tested - principles that break down the natural walls within corporate cultures, empower managers and employees, disarm difficulties, and cultivate an atmosphere that builds long-term success.

Publisher's Summary

Love Works is a framework for successful leadership. It outlines a counterintuitive but proven path to success through a passionate and motivated workforce. The mainstay of this philosophy is leading with love, which relies on seven time-proven - but unfortunately not-so-often tested - principles that break down the natural walls within corporate cultures, empower managers and employees, disarm difficulties, and cultivate an atmosphere that builds long-term success. The key to leading with love is turning love from an emotion into an action. This shift fosters strong relationships, which in turn builds enthusiastic employees and leads to enthusiastic customers.

Using love at work also leverages the undeniable truth that love builds healthy relationships at home, so why not use the same behavior to build healthy relationships at work? The book will explore the seven principles of love, which are patient, kind, trusting, unselfish, truthful, forgiving, and dedicated.

Joel Manby is proof that leading with love works. He has refined and relied upon this leadership philosophy for more than a quarter-century - first as a highly successful corporate executive at Saturn, then as Saab North America’s CEO, and most recently as president and CEO of Herschend Family Entertainment (HFE). HFE was also featured in the CBS hit show Undercover Boss. Overwhelmed by the response of the 18 million viewers who loved seeing love in action, Manby decided to share these principles.

    Story
    "Love Works is a great book!"
    What did you love best about Love Works?

    I loved the authenticity of the author, Joel Manby.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The whole message: His honesty about how his job at SAAB was ruining his marriage and family and how he had to find another way. He seems very likable, and admitted he didn't know it all, and that he learned from the Herschend family that "love works" in leadership. Who wouldn't want to work for a company like that?


    What does Joel Manby bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Authenticity in his voice.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I would have, but didn't have the time. I listened during my work commute.


    Any additional comments?

    I would read other books by Joel Manby.

    That love does work in management.


    Any additional comments?

    No matter what your job is, this is a MUST READ.

    Story
    "Can't wait to see how "Love Works" in my new place"

    It is always refreshing to hear how applying biblical principles will work in any organization when applying with a true heart and integrity instead of trying to make things happen for selfish purposes. Truly looking forward to applying the same principles in this next organization that I'm participating with. Thank you Joel for sharing your heart through real life struggles and joys with the hope of getting others to be able to apply the same principles for the temporal/eternal benefit of those who we work with as well as our own. Thank you again. Dave

    Story
    "Inspiring"
    If you could sum up Love Works in three words, what would they be?

    Not the usual (leadership book)


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The story about the young man Eric resonated with me the most.


    Have you listened to any of Joel Manby’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    All of the above. He is so honest and humble in his approach to leadership.


    Any additional comments?

    I listened to Joel open up about his personal as well as professional life while I walked. I know he would not want the attention on him, so I will offer it to his Creator and mentors. Nice job!
