Publisher's Summary

We've all seen it before: 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, co-authors, with Daniel Goleman, of the international best-seller Primal Leadership, 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.

In this new audiobook, Boyatzis and McKee marshal decades of multidisciplinary research and hands-on consulting work to provide a practical framework for how leaders can create and sustain resonance in their relationships, their teams, and their organizations. To counter the inevitable "power stress" of the leadership role, leaders must consciously manage the "Cycle of Sacrifice and Renewal" by stepping out of destructive patterns and renewing themselves physically, mentally, and emotionally. Through vivid examples, the authors show how three key elements - mindfulness, hope, and compassion - are essential to enabling renewal and sustaining resonance.

Leaders can't sustain effectiveness if they can't sustain themselves. Resonant Leadership offers inspiration, dozens of exercises, and other tools to help listeners become and remain successful leaders in their work and in their lives.

    "Is there any practical content at all?"

    Gosh this is the worst book I ever bought from Audible.

    There is zero practical information in it. It's all fluffed out hot air. Just repeated terms, like the never ending use of the word "resonant".

    I would have loved just two powerpoint slides, slide 1) the problem 2) the cure, with bullet points to each, that would have covered the entire book and saved hours of painfully boring trifling on and on waiting on any content.

    It's bad. Nothing practical, nothing you can use and even the stories in it have very questionable interpretations.

    "Solid"

    Great book and must-read for all managers. It outlines common pitfalls through narratives and explains how to develop your own leadership skills within an organization or team, at any level.

    "Great Concepts"

    The book covered what many companies neglect in management and leadership.Most of the examples were hard to relate to but the context was useful and exciting.

    "I want my $5 back for this book."

    The first two chapters where unbearable. The rest was fluff.

    Summed up, Someone did something and we believe it was resonant leadership. Over and over.

    I will avoid books by these authors.

    "Great advice for anyone!"

    I am a strong believer in the power of positive thinking and energy. This book strengthened my beliefs about how to lead and the activities are a great way to keep those positive thoughts going.
