Publisher's Summary

In his first book, It's Not Just Who You Know (which rose to number two on the New York Times best-seller list), world-renowned leadership speaker and former CEO of Up with People Tommy Spaulding talked about the power of building genuine and lasting relationships both personally and professionally.

In his new audiobook, The Heart-Led Leader, Spaulding turns his focus to ourselves - to who we are. Authentic leaders, Spaulding says, live and lead from the heart. The values and principles that guide our lives and shape our ability to lead others is far more important than our titles or our ability to crunch numbers or the impressive degrees we display on our walls. To effect true transformational change, heart-led leaders draw on the qualities of humility, vulnerability, transparency, empathy, and love.

Illustrated with stories from his own life and from some of the exceptional leaders he has met and worked with over the years, Spaulding unpacks what those qualities mean, talks about the 18-inch journey from the head to the heart - from our intellect to our emotions - and shows us how to incorporate them into our careers, into how we manage and lead others, and into how we live our lives. It is a vision of leadership that has the power to transform everything we do and the lives of everyone we touch.

    "More of same"

    Not a bad book nor a bad concept, But there is nothing new or Earth-shattering. Very similar to many other Leadership books and the author did little more then coin a few catchphrases to change the semantics

    "Simple Story"

    The stories shared how others transformed their organizations and the power of storytelling was reinforced, however transitioning these stories into heart-led leadership traits takes more guidedance that is provided in the book. There is a lot more to it!

    "A must-read for any leader"

    Tommy Spaulding is inspiring as he weaves the power of story into practical leadership principles. He doesn't just make a case for being a heart-led leader, he proves that you can lead with love and still stay the course with accountability and tough decisions. I will be recommending this book to my friends and colleagues.
