Descrizione

If you want your company to thrive, you need to break one of the oldest unwritten rules of leadership.

Leaders in nearly every industry have learned to keep a professional “distance” between themselves and the people who report to them—to avoid getting too close or too personal. This unwritten rule of leadership is pervasive and quietly destructive, and, little by little, keeping ourselves at arm’s length destroys trust, collaboration, and the very fabric of organizations.

When Tom Gartland became president of Avis Budget Group, North America, he wanted the corporate culture to become more "open and connected"—so he started with himself. His message was "business is personal—very personal." As he grew closer and connected more with those he was leading, he became a more effective leader, and those around him were inspired to create unprecedented results.

Tom found that when we truly open up and care about the people we work with, we can transform organizations into sanctuaries where people feel a deep connection to one another, a profound sense of being part of an important mission, and extraordinary engagement in their work. The result? Employees who feel valued generate exceptional profits. After applying this business philosophy at Avis, not only did Tom see an increase in employee morale, he also saw a significant increase in the company's bottom line.

In Lead with Heart, Tom provides an unconventional approach to business leadership, including advice and strategies on how to open yourself up as a leader, recognize potential in your employees, and increase employees' trust in you and the company. Lead with Heart is the revolutionary leadership book that will help managers and employees at all levels grow their businesses by connecting, honestly and meaningfully, with the people they lead.

Migliori citazioni

  • Be empathetic. To feel connected with the other person, you want to understand his or her feelings. Ask yourself: If I were receiving this message, how would I want it to be delivered? What is it like to be in his or her shoes?

  • For our connections to be real, I felt, they had to be deep. I wanted to be more open about what was in my heart—and even more, I wanted to discover what was in the hearts of those around me.

  • Tom coached me on how to take a long-term view toward success, while keeping an even keel, and standing my ground, as I worked with others through the twists and turns to get where I eventually wanted to go.

  • We devised a systematic logistics path through North America that allowed us to hug, shake hands with, look into the eyes of, and personally thank 80 percent of the people who were part of our organization.

  • Together, we were learning how to feel connected to each other and open up to new possibilities. That is why trust needs to permeate everything you do if you are going to lead with heart.
