It's the book that injected "emotional intelligence" into the business lexicon--and made it a necessary skill for leaders.
In the decade since the bestselling "Primal Leadership" was first published, managers across the globe have embraced its message and continue to attest to the importance of emotionally intelligent leadership. And the book's relevance has reached well beyond the business world: "Primal Leadership" is now used routinely in universities, business and medical schools, other professional training programs, and by a growing legion of leadership coaches.
This refreshed edition of "Primal Leadership" illustrates why the book is all the more timely today as leaders face ever-increasing pressures--from globalization and the economic roller coaster to the hyper-speed of evolving information technologies and the ratcheting up of competitive forces. This whirlwind of change puts increasing importance on the abilities of a leader to be self-aware and composed, focused and high energy, empathic and motivating, collaborative and compelling: in short, resonant. A host of studies worldwide continue to underscore why--and how--emotionally intelligent leadership gets results, especially in today's complex world.
