Sometimes, we as leaders don’t see all of the bottom line. Despite what many corporate cultures teach, there’s more to the bottom line than just the financials; there’s also the often-neglected people side of business, and that neglect shows.

So what did Joel learn about changing cultures, and how can you and I benefit from his journey as a leader? That’s the focus of today’s podcast—not only are we excited to share with you Joel’s philsosphy, which he made the basis of his best-selling book, Love Works: Seven Timeless Principles for Effective Leaders, we’re excited to introduce you to Joel through the eyes of John Maxwell and Mark Cole.

Thank you for sharing, John. Time and again, only when motivation comes from within does it last. The energy from expectations births the required effort for the task. And this motivation doesn't die; expectations build motivation. Thank you again!
