Thomas Spaulding – The Heart-Led Leader


In his first book, It’s Not Just Who You Know (which rose to number two on the New York Times best-seller list), world-renowned leadership speaker and former CEO of Up with People Tommy Spaulding talked about the power of building genuine and lasting relationships both personally and professionally.

In his new audiobook, The Heart-Led Leader, Spaulding turns his focus to ourselves – to who we are. Authentic leaders, Spaulding says, live and lead from the heart. The values and principles that guide our lives and shape our ability to lead others is far more important than our titles or our ability to crunch numbers or the impressive degrees we display on our walls. To effect true transformational change, heart-led leaders draw on the qualities of humility, vulnerability, transparency, empathy, and love.

Illustrated with stories from his own life and from some of the exceptional leaders he has met and worked with over the years, Spaulding unpacks what those qualities mean, talks about the 18-inch journey from the head to the heart – from our intellect to our emotions – and shows us how to incorporate them into our careers, into how we manage and lead others, and into how we live our lives. It is a vision of leadership that has the power to transform everything we do and the lives of everyone we touch.

While most business books focus on the how of leadership, Spaulding focuses on the why. As with any self-improvement or change in your life, if you dont have a genuine and understood why, youll never make lasting change. Read this book, understand your personal why, and make the difference you were meant for.
