Product Details


·  This book is a testament to the wisdom of ignoring the well-meaning advice of experts who too often look backwards to formulate strategies for the future. Had Mark C. Crowley listened to an expert who told him to stop writing about the heart—about the role of emotion—in leadership, this wonderful book would not exist, and those of us who study or practice leadership would be the poorer as a result. Engaging, searingly honest, and deeply researched, Lead From The Heart is destined to be a classic. – Amy C. Edmondson, Professor of Leadership and Management, Harvard Business School; author of The Fearless Organization

Crowley also shares with us very concrete, practical advice on how to do it.
