All too often, simple acts of human kindness are often overlooked and under-utilized by people in leadership roles. Advising mutual respect and recognition of accomplishments, Encouraging the Heart shows us how true leaders encourage and motivate those they work with by helping them find their voice and making them feel like heroes.

Recognized experts in the field of leadership, authors James Kouzes and Barry Posner show us that, through love, leaders can encourage, and indeed allow those around them to be their very best. Both practical and inspirational, Encouraging the Heart gives listeners a thoughtful approach to motivating individuals within an organizational structure.

    " A very different take on leadership. It was refreshing to look at encouraging your staff as who they are. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelsey | 10/21/2012

    " Sometimes, a little extra effort in listening and learning how to encourage others can make an incredible difference. Why simply live day to day when you can make a difference? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mary Lynn | 4/18/2012

    " I had to read this for a Leadership class I was taking. It made some good points and I definitely took away some concrete ideas to implement as a manager. But I'd rather spend my spare time reading fiction. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 11/1/2011

    " We all need encouragement, yet we desire it in different ways. This book has 150 different ways to encourage those in your life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicole | 7/13/2011

    " This book is a really different book on leadership. It's about more than getting people to do things. It's about inspiring those you lead by knowing who they are and recognizing them in ways that THEY want to be recognized. It's about setting a great example for people to follow. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kari | 5/22/2011

    " I was required to read this book for work. There were a few good stories in it, but overall it was cheesy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth | 3/11/2011

    " One of my favorites in leadership books. The individual is acknowledged, encouraged and becomes a valuable part of community. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carolyn | 7/30/2010

    " This was a text book I used during my Master's program in a class called HR of the future and what companies need to do to keep good people. It explains how a leader needs to relate to their employees and just like the title says, "Encourage their hearts". "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angela | 6/16/2010

    " This book provides insight and tools to encourage others to perform their best by authentic motivation (as opposed to incentives). Good Read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Adam | 12/20/2009

    " Great book. Helped me realize that I do not thank people when I do not believe I deserve the praise or the gift. The authors should have kept anything to do with George Bernard Shaw out of book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meghanly | 12/11/2009

    " I read this book for my Assistant Principal's Preparation course. Great practical suggestions integrated with the philosophical. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alvin | 10/25/2009

    " Tell people thank you. Guess we all need reminders. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eric | 7/16/2009

    " Great, really fast read that's educational for anyone in business for themselves, working at a non-profit organization or working at a large company.

    You can read this in about three hours and you'll learn a lot from Peter Drucker. "
