This powerful message comes at just the right time. We are indebted to John Hoyle for sharing his refreshing perspective on educational leadership and school reform that focuses on the worth and dignity of everyone involved.

Leadership and the Force of Love portrays a powerful message. Dr. Hoyle delivers a unique and proven approach to leadership. By de-emphasizing the theories of leadership and focusing on the actual behaviors of successful leaders, this book will help all audiences gain an understanding of why effective leaders that incorporate these concepts are known by what they do— not what they say.
