We've all seen it before: the ambitious
leader who enjoys great success and then, inexplicably, crashes and burns.
Perhaps this leader has been you. Why does this happen, in spite of the
leader's vision, talent, and emotional intelligence?

Richard Boyatzis
and Annie McKee, co-authors, with Daniel Goleman, of the international
best-seller Primal Leadership, argue that today's leaders face unprecedented
challenges that result in a vicious cycle of stress and sacrifice, with
little or no recovery time built in. Consequently, even the most resonant
leaders, whose ability to deftly manage their own and others' emotions once
drove their companies to greatness, end up spiraling into dissonance.

In this new audiobook, Boyatzis and McKee marshal decades
of multidisciplinary research and hands-on consulting work to provide a
practical framework for how leaders can create and sustain resonance in their
relationships, their teams, and their organizations. To counter the
inevitable "power stress" of the leadership role, leaders must
consciously manage the "Cycle of Sacrifice and Renewal" by stepping
out of destructive patterns and renewing themselves physically, mentally, and
emotionally. Through vivid examples, the authors show how three key elements
- mindfulness, hope, and compassion - are essential to enabling renewal and
sustaining resonance.

Leaders can't sustain effectiveness if they can't sustain themselves.
Resonant Leadership offers inspiration, dozens of exercises, and other tools
to help listeners become and remain successful leaders in their work and in
their lives.
