A powerful case has been made for emotional intelligence and its crucial role in human interaction. But leaders and organizations inevitably underestimate the challenges inherent in truly developing emotional intelligence and sustaining resonance in one's self and in one's organization. How do you implement emotional intelligence? How do you create resonance and develop it, in yourself and the people you lead?

In this new, practical and concise audiobook leadership experts and consultants Annie McKee, Richard Boyatzis, and Fran Johnston build on the groundbreaking ideas and real-life stories in their bestselling books Primal Leadership and Resonant Leadership to show how leaders can develop emotional intelligence and resonance. The authors have worked with thousands of individual leaders around the world, hundreds of senior teams, and dozens of public and private organizations and have developed powerful tools to help people become great leaders and sustain effectiveness in the long term.

At the core of this audiobook are carefully selected, experience-tested exercises that will help leaders reflect on their leadership and their lives, assess the degree to which they're employing emotional intelligence in leading and managing people, and learn how to manage the "cycle of sacrifice and renewal" to sustain resonance over time. The authors also include compelling stories and useful tools that illuminate how individuals, teams, and organizations find the path to resonance.
