Challenging entrenched preconceptions about achievement to get to the core of what drives success, Marcus’s strengths-based approach is a win/win scenario that, without exaggeration, will define the future of work.
“Love + Work”: How to find what you love, love what you do, and do it for the rest of your life.
World renowned researcher on leadership and New York Times bestselling author MARCUS BUCKINGHAM demystifies the classic work advice “do what you love” and helps us discover where we’re at our best – both at work and in life – in his new book and keyntoe, Love + Work.

Love + Work is already being heralded by Forbes as one of the ten must-reads for career and leadership in 2022, “to not only help people determine what they love to do, but help them choose roles where they’ll succeed, reshape existing jobs and do work that stands out from the crowd.”
