“As a global recruiter and advisor of Fortune 500 CEO's, I've read lots of books on leadership. I have found 'Love Works' to be a remarkable narrative on how timeless principles can transform an organization.

It surprises many that Love Works actually works in the Global Marketplace of the 21st Century. The idea may appear to be simple and obvious at first blush but many leaders miss it and suffer greatly for it. Carpe Diem.' -- Dale E Jones, , Vice Chairman, Heidrick and Struggles
