Full Description

Are you happy and fulfilled in the work you do? Leadership coach and emotional intelligence expert Annie McKee makes the most compelling case yet that happiness--and the full engagement that comes with it--is more important than ever at work today, and provides a simple, clear framework for achieving it.

  • Fresh, timely perspective and wisdom/solutions in response to an ever-more-urgent challenge: dealing with the stress generated by our hyper-economy (as illustrated, e.g., by the recent New York Times article on Amazon).
  • Fresh voices from interviews with thousands of leaders, managers, and team members from all over the world.
  • Stories and anecdotes from well-known companies and institutions who have faced the challenges of today's workplace and found real answers.
  • Clear and compelling instruction on what readers can do to become more engaged with their day-to-day activities at work.

Audience: Broad audience of execs and managers and employees who are stressed out at work, who are worried that this is affecting their performance and their health, and who want answers on how to become more engaged and fulfilled in their work. Audience includes the audience of Primal Leadership and Resonant Leadership (higher-level leaders and more senior managers) but goes beyond this to include middle managers and employees aspiring to management. Global audience, across industries and sectors (including public sector).
