Publisher's Summary

Imagine you’re one of 75,000 people working in a huge company, and the CEO wants to talk to you, one-on-one, to get to know and understand you. That’s what Monty Moran did 20,000 times as he built the extraordinary culture that took Chipotle Mexican Grill from a regional burrito chain to a Fortune 500 superstar. 

In Love Is Free, Guac Is Extra, Monty shows how he used curiosity, vulnerability, love, and a unique understanding of the true meaning of empowerment to build a distinctive and wildly effective culture. From his teenage days befriending homeless people at a Colorado Dairy Queen to his nuanced navigation of a complex co-CEO relationship, Monty demonstrates a relentless humility and desire to understand the person across from him. 

This is not your average leadership book. This is a book about business leadership executed in a way you’ve never encountered before, by becoming the best version of yourself.

Spectacular insight into leadership/communication

Amazing to hear Monty's journey and what a gift to be able to pull leadership lessons from his stories. Slightly biased as I was a GM at Chipotle during Monty's tenure having heard him speak in Vegas; he was always engaging and the highlight of the agenda. Looking forward to sharing a recommendation for this book to colleagues and also reading it again.. and again.

Great message, average delivery

This book delivers a great message with excellent advice for aspiring leaders from a lawyer turned CEO who is passionate about teaching others how to lead by truly caring about team members and listening intently to what they have to say. The writing and narration quality were only average though.

Love and compassion is key

Thank you for sharing your Love and Leadership in this book.
It was like listening to someone living in my world where compassion and love are the core guides to my own leadership style.
This book has enhanced my comfort and confidence to know that very successful business can be accomplished without the cutthroat approach of old.
