Anything in Possible When You Lead With Your Heart by Vic Pynn

Anything is Possible! When you Lead with your Heart, is more than just a business book. It's a book that could change your life. Author Vic Pynn deliver experiences from his career as an executive, as well as his earliest position as a prison guard, about the critical value of leading with the heart. In a prison setting, where the inmates outnumber the leaders who guard them, leadership traits like empathy matter. You're only a leader if people follow. If you have a false illusion of power, you might be putting yourself in danger. In the corporate world with the new generation of rightsized, downsized, and displaced employees from various organizations now must work together, leading with the heart matters more than ever. This is a book that shows you how. Like the Tipping Point, this is a book that will make you reevaluate everything you do. In each chapter, Pynn offers step by step exercises, and team binding and life changing strategies that anyone can use. Throw out everything you've ever been taught about leadership. In this new decade of technological explosion and change, executives are not only adventurers, but explorers. It's a brave new world. Is your organization, family, and team, prepared?

As a parent, oldest child and manager, I'm a leader but I'm not always successful.  I make poor choices and err in my judgement sometimes.  It's human.  I like to think I make some good decisions, but I know I could use all of the help I can get - especially with two teenagers!

Anything is Possible When You Lead With Your Heart's primary focus is ten key principles for leadership success.  Whether it's your job, your home, anywhere really, this book can help you become more successful in your life and your job.

Broken up into ten chapters, each chapter a principle, with a different quote at the beginning of each chapter.  There are inspiring, sometimes humorous, anecdotes that bring the principle into use and show how to apply it and be successful.

Insightful, clever and a must read for anyone who considers themselves a leader or business owner who wants to better themselves.  Vic writes in layman terms that are very easy to understand and to apply to your personal or business life.  I'd recommend this book to anyone!

*I received a copy of this book for my honest opinion.

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
