Leadership, social status and respect

A Listmania! list by James Taylor
The list author says: "Leadership is a quality gained through respect and charisma: respect has to be earned, charisma is more enigmatic. This list sets out study material to help us gain these qualities.

Although I am a teacher, I feel that this material could be successfully applied to any similar work environment where the objectives are to communicate and motivate. We need good verbal skills, we need good non-verbal skills, and above all we need emotional intelligence. I aim to produce students who are well adjusted, self motivated, and enthusiastic individuals, and above all, students who love studying. The skills that I use to achieve this goal will provide similar rewards elsewhere.

I've also included a couple of my own books, which include a wealth of information, condensing years of study into a couple of workbooks. These draw from NLP, pragmatics, voice training, and many more fields."
