Publisher's Summary

"As someone who is involved in influencing others toward excellence and inspiration, you need to be the best you can be for yourself, your mission, and those you lead."
—Dr. John Townsend.

Leaders at the forefront of society - executives, business owners, managers, and influencers - are constantly pressured to respond to the available research, analysis, and other linear sources of information in order to make critical decisions. But if you rely only on external data and fail to harness the power of your own subjective experience, you lose access to a great value toward your goals and outcomes.

A human behavioral expert and leadership consultant, Dr. John Townsend says there are priceless resources within every leader that are all too often neglected and ignored. Leadership Beyond Reason clarifies the leader’s internal world and teaches you how to draw on your intuition, emotions, creativity, spiritual life, and values. These principles will help you stand out from the rest in a world growing weary of paint-by-the-numbers leaders.

Whether you are increasing your skill set or looking for a new way to address your organization’s needs, Dr. Townsend’s insight and advice will train you to take advantage of the ability to look inward as well as outward and achieve great results.

Narrator

The narrator spoke too fast, it was hard to focus on what he was saying.

WOW!

If you could sum up Leadership Beyond Reason in three words, what would they be?

Eye-opening, transformational, helpful

What did you like best about this story?

Very straight and to the point

What does John Townsend bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

His counseling experience

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, it's one where you listen for a little bit and have to sit down and write down some steps to apply these truths. I wish there's a study guide or application guide of some sort.

Any additional comments?

The topics covered here are very good and to the point. I have struggled in these areas and tried to ignore them as a leader because they were just getting in the way. This book has helped me tremendously especially the part about emotions and relationships. Thank you for writing this stuff down. I'm taking steps to makes in these areas and are learning to use these five things as gauges on my leadership dashboard.
