Often viewed as 'touchy feely', intangible and invisible, most leaders separate their personal lives from their professional lives. Diana Jones, an executive coach for 30-years, argues that this is unwise. In fact, the 'soft side' of leadership - empathy, compassion, and authentic communication derived from personal experience - is both powerful and essential to enhancing executive presence, influencing others and achieving results. Through compelling stories and examples taken directly from Jones's coaching sessions with experienced leaders, listeners will learn how to make enduring behavioral changes that will produce better business results and create alignment among disparate groups using empathy and leadership language.

About the Author

Diana Wynne Jones (1934–2011) was an internationally bestselling British fantasy author. Although she was best known for her children’s books, Jones wrote anthologies, short stories, and nonfiction works for both children and adults. She has won numerous awards and accolades throughout her career, including the World Fantasy Award for Life Achievement, the Guardian Award for Children’s Books, and the Mythopoeic Fantasy Award; she has also been a runner-up for the British Carnegie Medal twice. A number of her novels have been adapted into movies, both for the big screen and for television. Her book Howl’s Moving Castle was made into a Japanese animated movie by filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki. Among her most well-known works are the Chrestomanci series, the Derkholm series, and The Tough Guide to Fantasyland, which won the Hugo Award for Nonfiction. Jones lived in Bristol, England.
