Relational Intelligence

Steve Saccone

How Leaders Can Expand Their Influence Through a New Way of Being Smart

"If you've ever wondered why smart leaders do dumb things, this is the book for you. Steve unpacks the dynamics that make leaders most effective—as well as most joyful. You probably don't need this information yourself, but read it anyway. You'll think of lots of people who do need it."
—John Ortberg, best-selling author and senior pastor, Menlo Park Presbyterian Church

"Steve Saccone . . . is not merely a theorist, but a practitioner that I greatly admire as I have seen in action what he writes about. Relational Intelligence is thought provoking and most of all practical. Leadership of any form is about people and communication and Steve ingeniously addresses both."
—Dan Kimball, author, They Like Jesus But Not The Church, and pastor, Vintage Faith Church

"Wow! You cannot read Relational Intelligence and not be challenged, empowered, and equipped. This book has it all, and every leader must read it!"
—Princess Kasune Zulu, advocate and activist for HIV and AIDS;

World Vision spokeswoman; world-renowned speaker; and author, Warrior Princess

"If anyone is qualified to write on Relational Intelligence it's Steve Saccone. You'll have a new friend by the time you're done reading this book."
—Mark Batterson, best-selling author and lead pastor, National Community Church

"Steve Saccone . . . .point[s] to issues in our inner and outer worlds that significantly shape our influence as leaders. For those of us who value leading through relationship, this book is a wise investment."
—Nancy Ortberg, consultant and founding partner, Teamworx2, an affiliate for Table Group (A Patrick Lencioni Company)

"Curiosity got me started in this book; great insight kept me reading; transformation has me planning on reading it again! Steve Saccone takes the mystery out of 'how to' when it comes to influencing others . . . .Brilliant stuff!"
—Ed Gungor, New York Times best-selling author, There's More to the Secret
