Most employees are taught to work hard then wait to be recognized and rewarded. This has left millions of employees disappointed, dissatisfied, and stuck. Advancing your career requires not only technical competence (the "what") but also careful skills (the "how"). While some employees are lucky enough to have mentors to guide them along their career journey, even fewer have sponsors. This leaves a huge gap for millions of employees who aspire for more in their careers but lack a personal guide to help them navigate an uncertain and often treacherous job terrain. The Heart of a Leader: 52 Emotional Intelligence Insights to Advance Your Career uncovers insider secrets on leadership for go-getters who aren't satisfied with status quo careers. Authored by Kristin Harper, the book is based on over 20 years of firsthand experience climbing the proverbial corporate ladder. When Harper graduated from business school, she had the technical skills to succeed, but she wasn't equipped to navigate the politics, personalities, and changing priorities that accompany the work environment. Through a combination of hard work, sound guidance from mentors, and a commitment to continuous improvement, she was named vice president of a Fortune 15 company in her 30s. Strengthening her emotional intelligence (EI) was a critical enabler of her success. Now, she's sharing these insights with you. Each chapter in The Heart of a Leader focuses on leadership and emotional intelligence competencies, actionable tools, bite-sized insights, and inspiring quotes to reference throughout your career. Whether you're an aspiring leader new in your career or a seasoned employee ready for the next level, adopting the time-tested, duplicatable insights in The Heart of a Leader will help accelerate your career.
