Working with the Heart, written by professional coach and corporate consultant Silvia Tassarotti, is a fascinating combination of fiction (written in the form of a novel), lessons in leadership development, vignettes highlighting the urgency to be personally and socially responsible (in and out of business), and giving ourselves the gift of maximizing our business acumen, primarily through coaching. Tassarotti has developed characters as beguiling as they are complex, men and women facing the daily challenges of surviving in the fast-paced world of corporate life. Alessandro, the General Manager of Pharma Corporation, is a high achiever with a strong ego and little motivation to prove his worth. When Sara, the Human Resources director, and Marta, an executive coach, enter the scene, everything changes. Alessandro is led forward and begins to understand, and then welcome, the changes in his professional life, developing a strong emotional and social intelligence. With a mixture of compelling fiction and business-leadership information straight out of the best MBA programs, this is one book that must be read.
