Book of the month
Authors: Richard Boyatzis and Annie McKee
We've all seen it in the ambitious leader who enjoys great success and then, inexplicably, crashes and burns. Perhaps this leader has been you. Why does this happen, in spite of the leader's vision, talent, and emotional intelligence? Richard Boyatzis and Annie McKee, argue that today's leaders face unprecedented challenges that result in a vicious cycle of stress and sacrifice, with little or no recovery time built in. Consequently, even the most resonant leaders - whose ability to deftly manage their own and others' emotions once drove their companies to greatness - end up spiraling into dissonance.
