In Robert Staub’s The Heart of Leadership: 12 Practices of Courageous Leaders, he lays out an articulate inquiry into, and explanation of, critically essential aspects of effective leadership including competency, intimacy, integrity and passion. Articulate, educative, ardent and inspiring, Staub offers a thoroughly “reader friendly” and practical presentation that is very highly recommended for anyone charged with an entrepreneurial or business management responsibility, from the smallest company to the largest international corporation. Leading requires that we offer strategic guidance by understanding and communicating the purpose for which the team or company stands. It also requires the courage to respectfully confront anyone, including ourselves, when actions do not alight with that purpose. Leaders can transform companies by focusing on the critical linkages of results and relationships; and a focus on wholehearted leadership can transform a good company into a great one. · Learn how to create meaningful relationships in and outside the workplace. · Achieve substantial results. · Don’t sacrifice your personal life, health and family.
