Inspired by his 25+ years of experience as CEO of major corporations, Joel Manby wrote LoveWorks: Seven Timeless Principles for Effective Leaders, detailing how to integrate “love the verb” into the leadership ethos and philosophy of any organization. This servant leadership approach has been proven to systematically transform organizations toward lower turnover, higher employee engagement, greater customer satisfaction, and stronger profits. Love Works has sold over 100,000 copies and has been re-released in an expanded and updated version that bravely explores personal and professional challenges and failures.
Previously, Joel served as CEO of SeaWorld Parks and Entertainment. He stepped in when SeaWorld was mired in a brand crisis and reset its vision and culture which improved attendance, employee engagement, customer trust, and profitability. For over a decade, he was the CEO of Herschend Enterprises, which managed over 20 entertainment properties including internationally respected brands such as the Harlem Globetrotters and Dolly Parton’s Dollywood theme park. Prior to joining Herschend Enterprises, Joel spent 20 years in the auto industry and served as CEO of Saab Automobile during Saab’s U.S. turnaround. He also led an Amazon start-up that introduced car sales to the internet.
Currently a Thought Leader for John Maxwell Leadership, Joel mentors, consults and speaks on LoveWorks and the leadership lessons drawn from his career. For over 20 years, he has been the Chairman of Orange, a non-profit dedicated to the development and distribution of youth curriculum and leadership training to over 9,000 churches in 40+ countries. He has also served on the National Advisory Board of the Salvation Army for over 10 years.
Joel received an M.B.A. from Harvard Business School and a B.A.from Albion College. He and his wife Shannon live in Naples, Florida.

BUSINESS IS ALL ABOUT PEOPLE AND RELATIONSHIPS. LOVE IS CRUCIAL FOR RELATIONSHIPS. SO WHY DO WE EXCLUDE LOVE FROM THE WORKPLACE?
A leader goes last. Joel Manby turns the traditional view of leadership on its head and presents a totally different approach. As an expert on leadership, he doesn’t lead with power. He leads with love. Joel has redefined love as a verb, not an emotion, to establish how leaders are to behave.
He shares how the seven words that define love (patient, kind, trusting, unselfishness, truthful, forgiving and dedicated) are put into practice everyday. And it’s not just talk. His former company puts its money where its mouth is. As HFE employees were evaluated on their financial goals and on how they treat each other and their guests.
