You can be emotional and strong; they are not mutually exclusive.

Many people see the words “emotional” and “strong” as contradictory terms that do not belong together when describing leaders who can transform their own lives, the lives of their colleagues, and the future of their business for the better.

After all, how can anything to do with feelings be the key to unlocking personal and collective success?

Well, it’s essential to learn how to be in the driver’s seat of your feelings and understand how to lead with a strong mind and a kind heart while using a set of clear, simple, and tested skills and strategies.

Doing so will allow you to connect more authentically and communicate more effectively with your coworkers and teams.

This kind of connection and communication will create an environment of trust and belonging that will spur engagement, spike curiosity, and engender fraternity among team members. That is what leading with emotional intelligence (EI) looks like.

The Book

The Emotionally Strong Leader

An Inside-Out Journey to Transformational Leadership

What we need today are leaders who embrace their feelings, and who understand themselves from the inside out. These are leaders who know why they do what they do, are in touch with their emotional makeup, and use the data from their emotions to help them make informed, rational decisions.

These are leaders who are leading with their superpower: Emotional Intelligence.

We need executives who are both emotional and strong, and The Emotionally Strong Leader will turn the way readers think about leading on its head.

Available September 13, 2022 (Canada) and October 4, 2022 (U.S.)

The Emotionally Strong Leader opens a new door to leadership through an inside-out, step-by-step approach that cuts straight to the heart of the issue: why we do what we do. Stern provides a simple set of strategies that will bring us to the best versions of ourselves in the workplace.
