Lead with Love is a guidebook for turning around sluggish cultures and poorly performing businesses. It outlines a counterintuitive but proven path to success through a passionate and motivated workforce. The mainstay of this philosophy is servant leadership, which relies on eight time-proven principles that break down the natural walls within corporate cultures and cultivate a healthy atmosphere that builds long-term success. The key to servant leadership 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 relationship at home, so why not use the same behavior to build healthy relationships at work? The eight principles of love are patience, humility, kindness, honesty, selflessness, respect, commitment, and forgiveness. Joel Manby is proof that servant leadership works. He has refined and relied upon the servant 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). Over the past few years HFE became the unparalleled leader in the entertainment and travel industry while rivals withered. HFE was also featured in the CBS hit show Undercover Boss. Overwhelmed by the response of the 18 million viewers who loved seeing servant leadership in action, Manby decided to write this book.
