From the Back Jacket:
The world of business desperately needs more heart-centered leadership. Focusing on an employee's whole self and creating an environment of trust and support will undoubtedly allow each person to unleash their creative genius to the benefit of everyone associated with the organization. Operating this way is not only enriching and fulfilling, but, ironically, it's also the most enduring and profitable approach to business. --Kip Tindell, Chairman and CEO, The Container Store
Susan and Joel's book takes a close look at what often guides our decisions and what should guide our decisions. In a culture where we rush to obtain goals that are often defined by societal pressures and external circumstances, Heart-Centered Leadership serves as a necessary reminder that each of us has unique goals and purposes, and in order to access them, we need to slow down and take a look within. In creating more responsible and conscious businesses, following steps to heart-centered leadership is something a lot of us could benefit from. --Jeffrey Hollender, Co-founder and former CEO, Seventh Generation
In their transformational book Heart-Centered Leadership, Susan Steinbrecher and Joel B. Bennett, Ph.D. offer leaders a research-based guide for moving beyond the outmoded, traditional business practices of the past into a place of powerful authenticity and ethics. Taking the inside out approach, leaders learn to expand their capacities and stretch beyond their own limitations in order to serve their companies in ways that create both financial health and greater human happiness. This book, with its step-by-step whole person approach to business is a vital key to the development of a better world. --Jean Houston, Author, The Wizard of Us

Top customer reviews
This ability starts from within. There is no escaping this fundamental truth. Whether the situation calls for being a great parent, a trusted friend, or outstanding CEO, the reason that people follow you is because of the light you shine from the inside out. Lao-Tzu mentioned that "the ways of the sage are attractive." Thus, the secret to influence is attraction, and attraction in turn is achieved through modeling honest, heart-felt compassion for oneself and other people in your life. The virtues laid out in this book walk the reader through the transforming world of inner wisdom and personal integrity in a way that is fresh, original, and illuminating.
Leadership influence is clearly understood by Steinbrecher and Bennett as being the "outcome" of the leadership journey, not the starting point, not the descriptor. Heart-Centered Leadership is a fantastic way to start your personal journey of building an authentic legacy in life, both personally and professionally.
If only I could give this book six stars instead of five I would do so...in a heartbeat.
