This book is for people in leadership positions who want to learn more about great leadership. Why use the word 'love' in a book for business? Because it matters! When leaders consider love from a philosophical viewpoint, it gives way to the serious business of trust, respect, compassion, ethics and loyalty in getting business done. If you give a damn about people and you're courageous enough to contemplate 'love', you get great business.
This book takes the reader through knowledge, practice and techniques. It is for busy managers to easily arm themselves with skills needed to improve the everyday performance of their people. If you love to lead, you need to Love to Lead.
