Okay. So this has been collecting dust on my shelf since my seminary leadership training days. Put this one in the category of "when the student is ready, the teacher appears" because this book and the case it makes for emotional intelligence's role in leadership totally resonate now in my current reality.

This book is a commitment; it is not a breezy read or page turner. It is a workbook and darn good one for anyone interested in growing in their leadership roles.

This book was a pleasant surprise. Had to read it for a leadership class for school, and was happy with how tactical and prescriptive it is. I would probably recommend reading this book after reading books like:
- The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People
- Essentialism
- Deep Work
- Never Eat Alone
- Designing Your Life
- Getting Things Done
- Make Time

Do the workbook - it makes all the difference. And, discuss and open up to others as you go through. It can feel repetitive and may be a bit excessive at time, but the real value comes in diving in and discussing with others.

80% of this book is about being internally resonant so that you can resonate with others and help a team resonate. It's full of exercises to promote self-realization in a range of dimensions. As a book targeted to executives, it presumes a high level of self-awareness such that exercises don't require a lot of explanation. If I hadn't already read a lot in this genre, I'd probably have found it a very thorough and useful process. But I have read a lot in this genre and didn't find much new - for ...more

Useful practical approach to developing leadership skills. Exercises are inviting and help reflect on every day aspects of leading with emotional intelligence. A great addition to McKee's, Boyatzis and Goleman's Primal Leadership

“Most of us have been touched deeply by a few important people: people who, because of their feelings for us and their actions, have helped us to become who we are today. Some of what these special people gave to us was uplifting and inspiring. Sometimes what they gave to us caused pain and only made sense later. Who has been a very special person in your life? Who has shaped you and helped you to be who you are today? Write a letter to this person. Tell the person what he or she has done for you, the impact the person has had, and your feelings about how he or she has touched you. Be as honest and authentic as possible. Write from your heart. You may decide later to send this letter, but this first version should be for you.” 4 likes
