And the Leader Is... Gareth Chick's second leadership coaching book, is a critical mentoring guide in business culture, management and organisational behaviour, showing us how to lead effectively with heightened Corporate Emotional Intelligence (CEQ).
Drawing on his 40 year experience in every aspect of the Corporate World, from CEO to performance coaching; from manager to trainer, Gareth Chick covers the fundamentals of emotional intelligence coaching to create high performance teams through transformational leadership and authentic change management.
In his first book Corporate Emotional Intelligence Gareth provided a compelling analysis of Corporate Psychology; giving us a profound new understanding of how working in the business environment can cause thoroughly decent human beings to behave in unnatural and inhuman ways. The book concluded by outlining the 4 Pillars of Corporate Emotional Intelligence (CEQ), equipping us with personal development strategies to raise our leadership effectiveness. And the Leader Is... completes Gareth's personal corporate life mission to give hard pressed modern managers the practical competencies to be more effective leaders, more fulfilled and more sustainable.
While each of his two leadership books stands on its own merits, the combination of the two forms arguably the most important work on corporate leadership since Dr Edwards Demings' writings of the late 20th Century. It is fitting therefore that the Foreword is written by Tony Barnes, the last surviving member of the Deming team that revolutionised Japanese business and manufacturing practices in the 1950s and 1960s.
