Author and Operation HOPE Founder John Hope Bryant inspires executives, educators, government leaders and entrepreneurs globally with LOVE LEADERSHIP principles
LOS ANGELES – LOVE LEADERSHIP: The New Way to Lead in a Fear-Based World (Jossey-Bass) makes the Inc. Magazine 800-CEO-READ 25 bestselling business books list for the month of November taking the #12 spot. Written by Operation HOPE Founder, Chairman and CEO John Hope Bryant, this month marks the 12th time the book has made the list since its release in August 2009.
Due to its popularity among CEOs, business managers, academics, community and political leaders, Bryant has made appearances all over the world in a series of “A Conversation on Leadership” lectures. His most recent engagement was at the Casablanca Stock Exchange where he highlighted the principles of LOVE LEADERSHIP and made an announcement with Wikia/Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales the creation of the Wikia-Operation HOPE Global Money Initiative.
So far this year, LOVE LEADERSHIP has been highlighted during the "Authors and Thought Leaders" session at the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos, “Lectures With World Leaders” hosted by Latvia's President Valdis Zatlers in Riga as well as events at The Economist Conference with Matthew Bishop in New York; the U.S. Treasury Department Executive Leadership Institute in Washington, DC; and SunTrust Bank in Baltimore, just to name a few.
LOVE LEADERSHIP demonstrates how leading with love and respect creates success in business and in life. The book makes the case that the best way to get ahead is to figure out what you have to give. Aimed at a new generation of leaders and extremely relevant for today's economic climate, LOVE LEADERSHIP draws on Bryant’s remarkable success story and on interviews with thirty love-based leaders such as former U.S. President Bill Clinton, Bill George, HRH Crown Prince Haakon of Norway, Ambassador Andrew Young, and some of the last book interviews with the late, great Secretary Jack Kemp and the late civil rights icon Dr. Dorothy I. Height.
