    This book answers: what is a leader, what are the different types of leadership, and how to be an effective leader. Quick read. Its rudimentary style makes the target audience entrepreneur/business students instead of actual CEO's. The "Resonate Leaders" chapter is lacking depth. At the very least, the book is motivating. I was given a copy of this book from Callisto Publishing. This book answers: what is a leader, what are the different types of leadership, and how to be an effective leader. Quick read.

    I read this for professional development as well as keep my knowledge from grad school sharp, because my degree was based in management/business and we talked about EQ. With that said, I am going to dive into this review, which is going to be more about the thoughts I had as I read, instead of based solely on content. If you want a statement about content then I will say this was easy-to-digest and I have heard a lot of this before in my business classes. Introduction No earth-shattering thoughts I read this for professional development as well as keep my knowledge from grad school sharp, because my degree was based in management/business and we talked about EQ. With that said, I am going to dive into this review, which is going to be more about the thoughts I had as I read, instead of based solely on content. If you want a statement about content then I will say this was easy-to-digest and I have heard a lot of this before in my business classes. Introduction No earth-shattering thoughts Chapter 1: Resonant Leaders This was interesting. The only person I have heard of was Tyler Perry and I did not realized he was a leader. I just think of him as an actor/comedian, so this was very enlightening. Chapter 2: Pillars of Emotionally Intelligent Leadership Self-Awareness: I like to see I have a handle on this, but with anything there is room for improvement. When I was looking at the checklist, there was somethings I think in the negative, especially how think others view me. I know I need to learn to think more positively on my traits. Self-Management: This is something I am cognizant and always striving to be better. I am emotional person, which means I have had some reactions that I know do not always match the situation. In those situations, I know to work through it and think about "Why am I having this reaction and what can I learn from it." Motivation: Using the Motivation Pulse Check, I need to think more about the first two bullet points. I try to keep a positive outlook, especially when the people around me are having a gloomy outlook. It makes no sense for everybody to think negative. In the long run, negativity does not have much use, because it can make you and others feel down and can create problems in a team and/or an organization. I will definitely say I have drive, which I try to gel with self-management. I am working on being delighted when we accomplish things as a team. Empathy: In this section, the author mentions "servant leadership" and once it was described I immediately thought of Jesus, because Jesus help others without seeking anything in return. Social Skills: Based on the assessment, I think I am definitely striving, but I think there are areas of improvement. With all of these pillars, I will be the first person to admit that I am hard on myself. Chapter 3: Leadership Styles Visionary: N/A Coaching: N/A Affiliative: N/A Democratic: Recently, I watched this anime called Kuroko No Basket, which focuses on a group of talented high school Japanese basketball players. It centers around Kuroko, who I thought is a democratic leader. He was always thinking about the team and how you win as a team. If this anime continued, I could see Kuroko becoming team captain. Pacesetting: N/A Commanding: N/A Chapter 4: Becoming an Emotionally Intelligent Leader No immediate thoughts came to mind Chapter 5: Creating Emotionally Intelligent Organization Coming soon Chapter 6: Sustaining Changes Coming soon

    Too bad this book was not around twenty years ago when I was put into a position for which I was woefully ill prepared. It would have saved me a lot of time and heartache. Take it from someone who has been there and done that, read the book. Chris Connors says, "We can all increase and improve our emotional intelligence. It all begins with self-awareness, with knowing who you really are."

It would have saved me a lot of time and heartache. Take it from someone who has been there and done that, read the book. Chris Connors says, "We can all increase and improve our emotional intelligence. It all begins with self-awareness, with knowing who you really are." This is the focus of his book as he step-by-step helps the reader understand and implement the nuances of what this means. He goes on to say, "If you’re going to lead others effectively, you need to have your own house in order." Followed by , "In order to give value to others in your organization, you must first introspectively look within and be firm in your values, strategy, and goals." Connors has provided the "modern leader" a fantastic tool to help them get a grip on leading their team, organization, or company. He has carefully mapped out the various elements necessary to develop emotional intelligence and how you and those you lead will benefit from you having done so. He doesn't sugar coat the issues. He outlines what should be done, illustrates the problems, and then shows how those who have been successful have implemented what he is suggesting. This is a well written book. It does not lag but keeps the reader engaged. It is not another boring business book, but one that will help you become all that you want to be as a successful leader. Upon request, the publisher, with no preset conditions, sent me a copy of the book to review.

    This book is a mix of highlights from other business books, anecdotes and stories of successful businesspeople, and in the first part of the book, practical and bit-sized activities and questionnaires to help the reader apply the principles to their own lives. It's a good primer for someone who is looking for inspiration or trying to figure out how to become a leader, but I would say it's a little too basic for people who are already in leadership roles. Combining and distilling the knowledge of This book is a mix of highlights from other business books, anecdotes and stories of successful businesspeople, and in the first part of the book, practical and bit-sized activities and questionnaires to help the reader apply the principles to their own lives. It's a good primer for someone who is looking for inspiration or trying to figure out how to become a leader, but I would say it's a little too basic for people who are already in leadership roles. Combining and distilling the knowledge of many business classics into one slim volume is very difficult, and I hope that readers who have not experienced those books go to the source materials for further reading. The first two-thirds of the book are the strongest with focus on self-assessment and self-awareness as the building blocks of emotional intelligence. A good first read for business students and junior employees looking to build leadership roles. Thanks to the publisher for a NetGalley, opinons are my own.

    This book disappointed me in many ways. The author doesn't know how to connect with the reader at all. He presents stale, unimaginative ideas, and doesn't even seek to word them in new ways. He has a limited, unrealistic view of "success" and focuses on jobs in office settings only. The examples of supposed role models are businessmen with questionable ethics. But I guess it could be helpful if you missed the "getting along with your peers" lessons in kindergarten. This book disappointed me in many ways.

    This book is a good start to understanding the role EI plays in fostering a successful leadershkp. It does however cover allot of the same content as many motivational books. If you are just starting to focus on improving your leadership skills, this might be a good place to start.

    This is a great guide on how to utilize emotional intelligence as a leader to motivate those you are leading. I thought that some of the advice was redundant, but there were some great pieces of advice and the stories were relevant and inspiring.

    This book is a quick read to motivate the modern leader. I enjoyed learning new tips on how to use emotional intelligence in the workplace. I would have liked to see less stories/famous references and more statistical content. Overall great read! Thanks to Callisto Media and NetGalley!

    I received a complimentary copy. A good book for getting into being a better leader but it can not just be read, it must also be put into practice.
