John Hope Bryant's LOVE LEADERSHIP Reaches Bestseller List for First Month of Sales

 LOVE LEADERSHIP debuts as #8 on the CEO-Read bestseller list for August 2009


LOS ANGELES - (September 14, 2009) - John Hope Bryant, World Economic Forum Young Global Leader, vice-chairman of the U.S. President's Advisory Council on Financial Literacy, and founder, chairman, and CEO of Operation HOPE, shows how leading with love and respect creates success in business and in life in LOVE LEADERSHIP: The New Way to Lead in a Fear-Based World (Jossey-Bass).

His groundbreaking book makes the case that the best way to get ahead is to figure out what you have to give to a world seemingly obsessed with the question: What do I get? Aimed at a new generation of leaders and extremely relevant for today's economic climate, Love Leadership draws on his remarkable success story and on interviews with love-based leaders such as Former President Bill Clinton, Bill George, and Andrew Young. Bryant outlines the five laws of love-based leadership: Loss Creates Leaders (there can be no strength without legitimate suffering), Fear Fails (only respect and love leads to success), Love Makes Money (love is at the core of true wealth), Vulnerability is Power (when you open up to people they open up to you), and Giving is Getting (the more you offer to others, the more they will give back to you).

Love Leadership is a unique and powerful book that bridges the gap between solid business advice and pure inspiration. Bryant continues to spread the word that leading by fear is NOT the answer. He recently spoke at the World Economic Forum in Dalian, China and heads next week to Montreal. Stateside in September, Bryant will join Ambassador Andrew Young for a "Conversation on Leadership" in Atlanta as well as address the Congressional Black Caucus Annual Legislative Conference in Washington, DC.
