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, Andrew Razeghi isolates the critical factor that is a core element of successful leadership and business strategy in any climate. 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. He reveals a solid strategy that develops leadership skills and applies them to individuals, teams, and organizations. Full of inspiring stories from business, politics, science, sports, art, religion, exploration, and philanthropy, the book also includes a wealth of thoughtful questions to ponder and exercises that help readers turn "hope" into an actionable and tangible tool.
