Overview


The blockbuster best seller Primal Leadership introduced us to "resonant" leaders--individuals who manage their own and others' emotions in ways that drive success. Leaders everywhere recognized the validity of resonant leadership, but struggled with how to achieve and sustain resonance amid the relentless demands of work and life. Now, Richard Boyatzis and Annie McKee provide an indispensable guide to overcoming the vicious cycle of stress, sacrifice, and dissonance that afflicts many leaders. Drawing from extensive multidisciplinary research and real-life stories, Resonant Leadership offers a field-tested framework for creating the resonance that fuels great leadership. Rather than constantly sacrificing themselves to workplace demands, leaders can manage the cycle using specific techniques to combat stress, avoid burnout, and renew themselves physically, mentally, and emotionally. The book reveals that the path to resonance is through mindfulness, hope, and compassion and shows how intentionally employing these qualities creates effective and enduring leadership. Great leaders are resonant leaders. Resonant Leadership offers the inspiration--and tools--to spark and sustain resonance in ourselves and in those we lead.

Boyatzis and McKee build on the foundation presented in Primal Leadership with sound advice on how leaders can flex their emotional muscles to become better at what they do. Stress and burn-out are no longer dirty little secrets and a clear connection is made between lack of emotional resilience and decreased performance as a leader. They include some excellent exercises that have been in the toolkits of coaches and counselors for decades, and are here given the weight and legitimacy they have long deserved. Boyatzis has extensive research to back his ideas and he and McKee write in an accessible and non-threatening way that will allow even the most emotionally blocked executive to benefit.

The authors have previously writen about emotional intelligence and this book does something important and valuable in providing a guide to overcoming the vicious cycle of stress, sacrifice, and dissonance that afflicts many leaders. Their research is intense (in a good way) and they use many real stories to offer a framework for creating the resonance that fuels great leadership. I was fascinated by the author's thoughts on how leaders can overcome constantly sacrificing themselves to workplace demand and, instead, manage the cycle using specific techniques to combat stress, avoid burnout, and renew themselves. Most of the book's strategies focus on mindfulness, hope, and compassion, and shows how intentionally employing these qualities creates effective and enduring leadership.
