HOBOKEN, NJ – October 23, 2018 – Work is Love Made Visible: A Collection of Essays About the Power of Finding Your Purpose from the World’s Greatest Thought Leaders (Wiley, 9781119513582; October 2018), a new business and leadership book from #1 Executive Coach Marshall Goldsmith, Presidential Medal of Freedom Recipient Frances Hesselbein, and Award-Winning Editor Sarah McArthur, is available now.

Work is Love Made Visible offers insight and commentary from distinguished management gurus, contemporary entrepreneurs and dynamic corporate leaders as they tackle one of life's most difficult treasure hunts: finding purpose. This book poses profound questions to individuals who have followed their purpose and succeeded on a global scale. The book sheds light on the experiences, examples, inspiration, and motivation of leaders from the public, private and social sectors through personal essays. Over 25 contributing authors detail how they tackle the universal struggle with individual purpose and meaning; how personal thought patterns contribute to real-world action; how leaders turn challenges into opportunities; and how these successful professionals arrive at their life’s purpose, and what they sacrificed to get there.

According to Jim Collins, author of Good to Great, “Frances Hesselbein is one of the truly great role-model leaders of our time. She inspires all who know her and her work to commit to leading in a spirit of noble purpose, guided by her life’s philosophy: To Serve is to Live!”

Work is Love Made Visible is structured into five parts based on the leadership philosophy of Frances Hesselbein and aims to illuminate the inherent gifts of individuals so that readers may use their own talents to the advancement and healthy functioning of the global society.

In addition to contributions from leadership experts Dave Ulrich, Whitney Johnson, Patrick Lencioni, David Allen, Rita McGrath, Mark Thompson, Alex Osterwalder, and Liz Wiseman, the book features new thoughts from some of today's most influential leaders in business (World Bank Group, Inc. and Best Buy), academia (Rice University and University of Pennsylvania), social enterprise (Doctors Without Borders and Junior Achievement Worldwide) and the military.

Work Is Love Made Visible is a genuinely moving exploration of the meaning and significance of work,” says Jim Kouzes, coauthor of the best-selling The Leadership Challenge. “It’s a book you ponder over, sit with for a while, and talk about with friends and family.”
