John Hope Bryant’s childhood poverty and six months of homelessness fueled his desire to help people in low-income communities. After the Rodney King riots divided Los Angeles and the nation, Bryant started Operation HOPE. He discusses how his hard upbringing and subsequent efforts to start and run a nonprofit organization taught him the five main laws of leading without fear. Bryant includes interviews with both famous and unknown love-based leaders – including Bill Clinton and Prince Haakon Magnus of Norway – but their stories are mostly platitudes. Bryant’s own story is his most compelling example of love-based leadership. getAbstract recommends this uplifting book to all current and aspiring leaders.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why fear-based leadership doesn’t work,
- Why you should lead with love instead and
- How to apply the five laws of love leadership.
