  1. Mtbike40

    I think that this is an excellent book about emotional intelligence and how someone can impact their leadership ability through self awareness and self control. [Review from Goodreads]

  2. James

    A very good book on EI and how organizations will have a better chance of success when leadership displays and lives the right EI traits. Looking through past and current organizations, I’ve seen the leaders demonstrate the right EI traits helping an organization and other leaders demonstrate EI traits that have created toxic environments.
    This book was also a good self reflection for me to highlight areas I am doing ok on as well as areas where I have struggled in the past and where I’m working to change behaviors. [Review from Goodreads]

  3. Michael

    This is one of the better books on leadership development that I’ve read… It would be great for a class or an executive coaching program. [Review from Goodreads]

  4. Jennifer

    One of those “mostly common sense but common sense isn’t so common” kind of books… Focusses on emotional intelligence and how it relates to leadership styles… Dumb title but well worth the read. [Review from Goodreads]
