“Just when you think that no one can possibly write anything new and enlightening on management philosophy, Gerry Czarnecki has wonderfully pieced together his personal experiences and some generally accepted (but rarely consistently practices) principles into a powerful, thought-provoking set of principles on leadership of any group.  The focal point, leading with love, should cause every manager to fundamentally re-think his/her approach to not only leading his/her own group, but interacting with anyone else in their organization … and beyond those bounds as well.’
