Joel Manby’s compelling new book is a practical road map to compassion, yet accountable leadership in a troubled world that needs both. I have known Joel for many years and have watched him to lead with love and strive to serve with a caring heart at home, work, and church. It is a must read for anyone who leads anybody in the nonprofit or for-profit world.
If this book doesn’t help and inspire you to be a great leader, I don’t know what could. Love works and so does Joel Manby. He is everything this book represents and more. I feel privileged to know him and blessed to be able to work alongside him.

So often we feel we have to choose between two desirable but apparently opposing objectives when leading organizations. Joel shows us how to be both loving and accountable; to be profitable and caring; to be effective and be giving. He has written Love Works as a businessman. But if government and some nonprofits would apply just a fraction of his message in their leadership too, they would be both more effective and happier places.

For every leader who has ever wondered what role, if any, compassion has in running a business successfully, Love Works provides an inspiring answer. Joel’s journey—the ups, the downs, and ultimately the lessons learned–is so compelling that I finished it in a single afternoon. It’s a must read for leaders who care.

It's one thing to know that 'love is an action,' but far more challenging to make that action a way of life - at work and at home. Reading Love Works will transform your life. I've known Joel for well overtwenty-five years and have never met a leader more qualified to write on this topic.
