Assuming that all leaders today "get" that relationships are the pathways to progress and ultimately success, the information assembled here by Joshua Freedman is an important read for any leader looking to take it higher. The information is clear and intriguing and the examples are relevant and interesting and applicable to all aspects of life. Thanks Joshua for your leadership and devotion to the subject of emotional intelligence. --Arlene Pfeiff, Vice President, Technologies, American Express
The Heart of Leadership is an outstanding and eminently practical guide for anyone who hopes to be a great mentor, to influence with integrity and to truly lead organizations. Joshua Freedman has a unique gift for engaging people from all walks of life in learning and professional transformation -- this book is a must-read for leaders everywhere! --Annie McKee, CEO Teleos Leadership Institute; coauthor, Primal Leadership
Josh manages to articulate a clear message in a very easy to read book that can be used by leaders in any profession. Moving away from purely task-oriented skills and recognizing that success, or failure, can be attributed to concepts of emotional intelligence is at once refreshing but also challenging. Once we as leaders begin to acknowledge that this component is not only important within the behavior, action, emotion triangle but that EQ can be enhanced, we can use these skills to improve the success of our teams and therefore our companies. Highly recommended. --Stephen Beaumont, Vice President, Lodging

I have been a fan of Joshua Freedman and his organization, Six Seconds for a few years now.
As an experienced Emotional Intelligence practitioner, I work with Travis Bradberry's, MHS EQi and Daniel Goleman's books, tools and models as well.
What I love about the approach taken in this book is it's simplicity. I am a leadership trainer, and I've found the KCG 123 model which is explained in The Heart of Leadership to be fun for my clients to grasp. I now use it as part of my leadership training along with other tools that develop positive behaviors for fulfilling lives, optimal decision making and collaborative relationship building.
Check out the results of knowing how to use the wisdom your feelings have to offer to know for sure that ALL emotions are intelligent. Let's all evolve Emotional Intelligence to the next level.
