Leadership and the Force of Love
Six Keys to Motivating With Love


Other Titles in:
Communication | Leadership | Principalship

November 2001 | 136 pages | Corwin

Through vivid, real-world examples and an engaging approach to effective leadership, visionary author John Hoyle masterfully illustrates the key to success in any industry, whether the setting is the classroom or the boardroom. Leadership and the Force of Love is a profound yet straightforward exploration of how leaders can inspire others to greatness through these six key actions:

  • Visioning
  • Communicating
  • Teamworking
  • Empowering
  • Mentoring
  • Evaluating

Though educators are frequently faced with the challenges of politics, hostility, selfishness, and violence, Hoyle demonstrates that overcoming these obstacles requires teamwork, motivation, empowerment, and communication. While many have written about moral leadership, the notion of leading with love has been largely ignored. Hoyle discusses the implications for love in leadership and affirms once and for all that if you can't love you can't lead.
