You’ve long been told to “Do what you love.” Sounds simple, but the real challenge is how to do this in a world not set up to help you. Most of us actually don’t know the real truth of what we love – what engages us and makes us thrive – and our workplaces, jobs, schools, even our parents, are focused instead on making us conform. 

In this eye-opening, uplifting book, Buckingham shows you how to break free from this conformity – how to decode your own loves, turn them into their most powerful expression, and do the same for those you lead and those you love.

Love, the most powerful of human emotions, the source of all creativity, collaboration, insight, and excellence, has been systematically drained from our lives – our work, teams, and classrooms.

It’s time we brought love back in. 

Love + Work shows you how.
