5.0 out of 5 stars Build your own authentic leadership approach, 12 Jun 2008

This McKee, Boyatzis and Johnson book has the most number of exercises and activities of the recent spate of books on leadership from Harvard Business Press. Built on their previous work using Emotional Intelligence as a core component of leadership (they were co-authors of Primal Leadership with Daniel Goleman), Becoming a Resonant Leader takes the reader on a journey to identify their ideal leader profile and create a learning map to take them there.

Exercises to uncover beliefs and values, analysing stories about best and worst leaders, looking at defensive routines and life's wake up calls build a picture of self awareness. Identifying values, life lines, career patterns, social networks and personal preferences help to create a personal vision. Setting personal learning goals, building support systems and action steps then bridge the gap between the current reality and the ideal self.

This is a genuine guide to developing leadership, wherever you practice it - be that in the family, social groups, the local scout or church groups, or in organisations at whatever level.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent read, 7 July 2013

I picked this up after taking a course presented by Richard Boyzatis. His principles of resonant leadership and obvious love of the subject are infectious, and he enthuses those around him. The exercises and principles laid out in this book are the key to effective resonant leadership. Well worth reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great resonance, 13 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First off I know the author. The book is great for self-study and development and I have had great feedback from people to whom I have recommended it. It is not always necessary to start at the beginning and work forward. Some people tell me they have started part way where they think they need to reflect and then have gone to earlier parts as they discover a need. The style is very readable and makes you stop to really reflect on yourself and how you can improve by becoming the best YOU can be rather than trying to become someone else. This is not a mould but an exploration of one 's ideal self.

5.0 out of 5 stars A collection of powerful self-analysis exercises, 9 Jan 2014
By 
DON'T buy this book if you're expecting to read through a book quickly and be told how to become a more successful leader.

DO buy this book if you are willing to reflect on what's important to you and on how others perceive you. The book takes time to go through.

DO buy this book is you want to understand more about yourself and how to become a more effective or 'resonant' leader. I had come across some of these exercises before but I still found this book incredibly useful.
