Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:

In moments of uncertainty, when hope is on the line, why do some leaders succeed and others fail? ... Could it be that triumphant leaders follow an unarticulated methodology of sorts for translating hope, the virtue, into hope, the plan? If so, can it be learned? It appears the answer is yes.
Whether businesses face uncertainty or meet the challenge of the constant pressure to innovate, leaders must dig deep to keep their focus and stay effective. In this landmark new book, Hope: How Triumphant Leaders Create the Future, Andrew Razeghi isolates the critical factor that is a core element of successful leadership and business strategy in any climate. The book unveils the answer to a fundamental question, namely, in moments of uncertainty, why do some leaders succeed while others fail? Fundamentally, how do they make hope happen?

Using research from neuroscience and behavioral psychology, along with real world stories of CEOs, business start-ups, political leaders, groundbreaking scientists, and others, Razeghi shows that hope is a proven tool for competitive advantage. In Hope, Andrew reveals a solid strategy that develops leadership skills and applies them to individuals, teams, and organizations. The book is rich in inspiring stories from business, politics, science, sports, art, religion, exploration, and philanthropy. It also presents a wealth of thoughtful questions to ponder and exercises to help you learn to turn "hope" into an actionable and tangible tool. Hope is receiving rave reviews and has been endorsed by everyone from Cancer Survivor and Tour de France Champion Lance Armstrong to best-selling authors Dr. Ken Blanchard and Dr. Jim Belasco who calls Hope - “the trail blazing management book of our time!”

Reviewer: Schwinge from Chicago, IL. United States

I had the pleasure of reading an advance copy and thought it was fantastic. The book is inspirational and flows more like an engaging novel than a business book.
