He encourages readers to ask "How can I recognize a WOO when I see one?" and "Why have I missed WOO's in my past?" and shows them how, by using our ability to network, create more energy, foster teamwork, and partner with others, we can create windows of opportunity that transform our careers and our lives"--

The Heart Led Leader

Author: Thomas Spaulding
Publisher: Crown Business
ISBN: 9780553419030
Release Date: 2015
Genre: Business & Economics

In his first book, It's Not Just Who You Know, former CEO of Up with People Tommy Spaulding talked about the power of building genuine and lasting relationships both personally and professionally. In his new book, Spaulding turns his focus to ourselves -- to who we are. Authentic leaders, Spaulding says, live and lead from the heart. The values and principles that guide our lives and shape our ability to lead others is far more important than our title, or our ability to crunch numbers, or the impressive degrees we display on our walls. To effect true transformational change, heart-led leaders draw on the qualities of humility, vulnerability, transparency, empathy and love. Illustrated with stories from his own life, and from some of the exceptional leaders he has met and worked with over the years, Spaulding unpacks what those qualities mean, talks about the 18-inch journey from the head to the heart -- from our intellect to our emotions -- and shows us how to incorporate them into our careers, into how we manage and lead others, and into how we live our lives.

When the financial crisis of 2008–09 forces 90 percent of its competitors out of business, Encore thrives, with its profits increasing by 300 percent and its stock price by 1200 percent. Told from two lively first-person perspectives, Ego Free Leadership brings readers along for Encore’s incredible success story.
