    If you¿re looking for a goldmine of timeless leadership treasures, you¿ll want to add Leading People The Black Belt Way to your collection. This book is unique because Warneka weaves his vast knowledge of eastern philosophy through the basic principles of emotional intelligence. It¿s thought provoking and loaded with plenty gems of wisdom. He highlights key points with bolding, for easy reference later. Each chapter ends with a summary and a learning experiment to help you implement the key concepts. The book¿s content is written around the framework of The Seven Solutions of Black Belt Leadership: 1. Know the Five Core Problems of Leadership 2. Understand Leadership as a Relational Process 3. Seek Harmony in Leadership 4. Lead People Rather than Pushing or Pulling Them 5. Cultivate Emotional Engagement 6. Practice Embodied Leadership 7. Follow The Black Belt Cycle of Leading People Don¿t worry if you don¿t really understand the meaning from this list. Warneka thoroughly defines ¿what is meant¿ at the beginning of each chapter. This book is a great investment because it¿s jam packed with hidden gems. It¿s so content rich that he could have easily broken it down to several smaller, simpler books. Warneka clearly put his heart and soul into this piece of work. I¿m an avid business book reader and I have to say that I found it to be on the difficult side to read. Each chapter is prefaced with an eastern philosophy based story, which I personally found a bit distracting. If you¿re going to read it cover to cover, consider taking it in bite-sized chunks to maximize the benefits. Read one chapter every 2 ¿ 4 weeks, complete the experiments at the end, and give your self plenty of time to sift, sort, and learn from the material. If you couldn¿t put down Daniel Goleman¿s books on emotional intelligence, you¿re likely to be thrilled with this book. On the other hand, if you found Goleman¿s books to be great reference material versus engaging and inspirational, you¿ll likely feel the same way about this one. Regardless, it¿s a great addition to your business book library.

    Leaders are sometimes hard to find. Sure, there¿s loads of folks that have been to leadership workshops and programs to be indoctrinated with yet another leadership system. But as Warneka points out, ¿The world does not need one more leadership system. What the world does need is great leadership that draws on the wisdom of the body and recognizes the treasury of emotions waiting to be tapped within every organization.¿ Using references to the lovely and efficient Japanese martial art of Aikido, Warneka shows us the importance of the above statement. In a text that flows much like a well trained martial artist, we receive epigrams from a well known swordsman, the Tao, today¿s best and brightest leadership coaches and the ever important thoughts of Ghandi and Einstein. Along with all that we get examples of Warneka¿s tried and try methods, his well thought out ¿learning experiments¿, helpful Author¿s notes and an extensive bibliography/webography. And while you¿ll have loads of folks you¿ll want to buy a copy for, this book could stay in your briefcase or backpack for months and in your library indefinitely. I could list the 5 core problems that face leaders today, the 4 tools of conflict management or the 7 solutions of black belt leadership that Warneka expounds on and offers solutions to, or I could tell you this: Whether you¿re the president of your garden club developing your next fundraiser, a teacher dealing with stubborn union issues, or a Fortune 500 CEO, this book can help. Heck, it can be helpful in issues that arise every minute of every day in every country on this planet. Working together and living together is what we do as a species, using techniques that borrow from the philosophy of yin/ yang, the Gestalt Cycle of Experience, and the teachings of Joseph Campbell, just may help us become those leaders we so desperately need.
