SORT BY Relevancy
Mark C. Crowley is the author of the “Lead From The Heart: Transformational Leadership For The 21st Century.
Mark spent 25 years in the banking and financial services industry before writing his book. His most recent role was Senior Vice President and National Sales Manager at one of the nation’s largest financial institutions – where he was named “Leader of the Year.”
Mark’s ambition is to fundamentally change how we lead people in the American workplace. It’s a stunning fact that over half of all US workers hate their jobs today — and only 3 in 10 admit to being fully engaged at work. What this clearly shows is that we’ve reached a crisis point that traditional leadership practices cannot solve.
In Lead From The Heart, Mark presents irrefutable evidence that the solution leaders need in order to fully re-inspire their workforces lies in the last place traditional business would seek to find it: the human heart.
Overturning 300-year-old scientific understanding, recent medical discoveries reveal that the heart is not only an intelligent and sensing organ, but that feelings and emotions drive human performance and achievement – what people care most about in their lives.
Consequently, in order to fully engage 21st Century employees, organizations must fully give up on the idea that having a job and a paycheck is an entirely sufficient exchange for a person’s work. Instead, leaders must intentionally seek to make people feel valued, respected, developed and cared for. They must ensure employees are made to feel their work matters.
As Mark says in his book, “we’ve seen centuries of evidence of what the heart can do in sports, arts and music. Business is next.

A more resonant definition of leadership
Who do we define as leaders?
What is its dark underbelly and why is it important not only to understand it, to learn to create from it?
Who are the leaders for our times, and what does that say about our leaders? What does that say about our times?
Ruth Sinkeler CPCC, ACC, Human Developer, Expert in Sexy Leadership & UBUNTU Leadership, Happy MKB, Executive/ Business Coach,Speaker, and Author shares her insight on making Leadership sexy again.
What does leadership have to do with sex?
What makes you sexy and attractive as a leader? This is the BIG question waiting to be answered.
Leadership has everything to do with being your most authentic self and living according to your values first. When you live your life from your core values and you act from them.
Leading from authenticity creates trust. And trust is one of the biggest things anyone who calls him or herself a leader needs. To create trust with people you want to follow you is one of the biggest challenges of any leader. There is nothing to lead if no one trusts you.
Is being a leader exclusively for an elite group? No it is not. There are many examples of people from all parts of society, genders and races, who stepped into their authenticity, lived according to their core values, created trust and have followers.
Another thing leaders have in common is that they truly live by their passion. Whether it is a passion for garbage cleaning or for politics. It does not matter. Anyone who has a great passion and inspires others to do the same or achieve their dreams has leader qualities
A true leader is aware of his or her impact on people and takes responsibility for his or her actions. It might happen that even if acted from authenticity, core values and passion the impact on others is not that positive. Taking responsibility is of big importance in that case. Leaders don’t just create an impact and walk away. They stay and find ways to turn things around, the positive way. After all, it was all about creating trust, right?
What does this have to do with sex? Maybe not much, but this sexy way of Leadership sure sounds hot.
Most of the MSOL program is directed study. All students take 10 courses with a set syllabus that is the same for all. There is one aspect of the program, however, where the students pick a topic of interest, read 30 academic or scholarly articles, and submit a one-page summary of each one of the 30 readings. These are called annotated bibliographies and give the student a chance to excel and become an expert of sorts in their chosen topic. John is joined by one current student and one MSOL graduate on today's show to talk about their experience with the annotated bibliography portion of the MSOL program.
