by Lyn Boyer —
I had to include this book because it is at the heart of what I do and what I believe about leadership. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed compiling and writing it.

Effective leaders have the ability to connect with other people who will join them to change the future. It is not only their words or positions that make the difference. It is a host of mental and physical skills and attributes that attract people to them. These skills include the ability to build relationships and establish trust. They also include the often forgotten skills of physical presence, emotional intelligence, lightness and the ability to listen.
Because these essential leadership skills are often forgotten or ignored, I have written Connect: Affective LeadershipSM for Effective Results for aspiring, new and experienced leaders.
This book offers leaders the opportunity to Connect to each of the following:
- Leadership Presence
- Genuine Emotional Interaction
- Intentional Language
- Listening and Asking Powerful Questions
- Building and Maintaining Trust
- Physical and Emotional Lightness
In addition to thoughtful discussion of personal and professional learning in these areas, leaders will find activities for practice designed to promote mastery of these skills.
Connect: Affective Leadership for Effective Results is available online in paperback and e-book.
