Offering a Glimpse Into the Strength, Wisdom, and Self-Mastery of Exceptional Leadership This insightful and engaging book speaks volumes on ways in which all of us, at any level, can improve our leadership impact and develop the humility, integrity, and honor that instills hope and confidence in others. Drawing on over 25 years of leadership experience, Bruna Martinuzzi brilliantly conveys the essential guidelines for the emotionally intelligent leadership needed for enduring success. Some leaders are exceptional human beings, people that others genuinely want to follow; the book uses the Yiddish word Mensch, meaning "real person of character" to describe these worthy leaders. Martinuzzi takes the reader on a transformative journey to a way of living, self-discovery, and personal strength that translates into becoming a person who authentically inspires with empathy and confidence -- and successfully motivates others to follow by example, a mensch-leader. Written for senior and emergent leaders, as well as coaches and mentors, Leader as a Mensch reminds us that followers strongly impact and sustain good leadership -- and, before you can lead any group, team, or organization, you must first lead yourself.

This book is anyone wanting to enhance the way he or she supports and influences others at work and in life.

An unsurpassed glimpse into the strength, wisdom, and self-mastery of true leadership, Bruna Martinuzzi's inspiring words close with an equally inspiring appendix, complete with an extensive listings of books, articles, and emotional intelligence frameworks to use on your path toward your personal best.
