We’ve seen it all before: the ambitious leader who enjoys great success and then, inexplicably, crushes 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, 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 spiralling into dissonance.
In Resonant Leadership, 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.
