I read this book after reading Primal Leadership (Goleman), following Boyatzis fairly extensively, and studying various other leadership development resources.

Format: Paperback
This is a companion workbook to Resonant Leadership that practically shows you how to become a resonant leader as well as a better, more engaged person through the use of exercises. I use this workbook in my coaching practice and consider it a wonderful tool to help my clients reflect on areas of their life that they may not have had an opportunity to do in some time.

If you or someone you care about is ready to start living life with intentionality, this is a great workbook to get you started on that journey.

Format: Paperback
This is a great book. I've read the other two books by McKee and Boyatzis, and this takes the core ideas around hope and compassion and makes them more concrete for the leader. I was surprised by how inspired I became from actually doing the exercises. I feel grounded and clearer about what I want from my work, and from life.

Strongly recommended.

Format: Paperback
This is a book I will be recommending to my coaching clients and their teams for a long time!

Guided by Richard Boyatzis' and Annie McKee's previous research on resonant leadership (and book by that title Resonant Leadership: Renewing Yourself and Connecting with Others Through Mindfulness, Hope, and Compassion) and coaching to the Positive Emotional Attractor, this workbook-like text provides an excellent hands-on guide, with dozens of useful exercises, to help leaders make intentional change--focused on being emotionally open and receptive. Called the Intentional Change model, here's an overview:
a. Ideal Self: If I were the best me possible, what would that look like in the future?
b. Real Self: Who am I today--my strengths, weaknesses, and influence on others?
c. Learning Agenda: How do I move from the real to the ideal state? What interesting, challenging and enjoyable activities will get me there?
d. Experiment and Practice: How can new behaviors and habits lead to the change I wish to become?
e. Resonant Relationships: Change only happens in a supportive and nonjudgmental environment. Surrounding myself with those kinds of people is as vital as anything to me in the process.

I bought this book for a class, and it has a lot of exercises to help you develop yourself. If you put the effort you need to into the book and what it asks of you, you will develop into a better person

I read this book after reading Primal Leadership (Goleman), following Boyatzis fairly extensively, and studying various other leadership development resources. I have to say that this has been the best (maybe only) resource that has actually told you HOW to become a leader.

I found this book to overwhelmingly teach you HOW to be a leader, starting with yourself. What some may ignorantly believe after reading this book is that it teaches nothing about leadership, but only about reflecting on yourself. Let me explain:

Emotional Intelligence consists of four areas: Self-awareness, Social-awareness, Self-management and Relationship Management.
Self-awareness is the foundation of all areas. You must be self-aware before you can truly understand others (social awareness). You must be self-aware before you know what to manage in yourself. Finally, you need to have a good (not perfect) grasp of self-awareness, social-awareness and self-management if you expect to properly manage relationships.

Therefore, this book is a great tool because it is largely about self-discovery and self-management. With these elements, and through experimentation, practice, and general "living", you can become more socially aware. From there, relationships can build as well (which the book supports).

Finally, after you complete all of these exercises yourself, you are in a much better position to be a leader (of your own life, but also of others), and you can apply what you have learned to an organization/workplace. If you successfully complete the exercises, it will become clear how they can translate outside of just yourself and to others.

Format: Paperback
Among her many credits, Annie McKee is co-author of the international best-selling books, Primal Leadership and Resonant Leadership. The trilogy is complete with this newer book, Becoming a Resonant Leadership, which I read cover to cover today. We all know that leaders' emotions affect the moods of everyone around them. McKee's book, co-authored with Richard Boyatzis and Frances Johnston, shows leaders how to develop and use emotional intelligence to improve morale, growth, profitability, and long-term success.
