    Very helpful and informative. Our emotions happens faster than cognitively we are aware of it. Great work.

    Leaders don't tell what they want, unless they are position leaders. Hardly anything they get is of value.
    Leaders ask.
    If you are emotionally intelligent enough to understand the profound difference, you'll develop your leadership to build real followers round you.

    Perhaps one of the worst speeches on leadership I'd watched. Negative from the beginning to the end. I guess Mr Psy.D., CGP, doesn't even realise. Just a hint. '…using to their your advantage'. You have any idea what negative subliminal message this word carries? It's like telling; "I will (take) have an advantage over you.

    He didn't even connect to his audience, except, making them laugh a few times when he, desperate for keeping the audience awake, said something funny that wasn't even – funny, because it was – 'not sincere.' It's like holding up a sign to the audience, reading; "Laugh and clap, …3, 2, 1, Now".

    A typical position leader who has the right to tell what he want's me to do, because of his titles. But I don't follow titles, nor positions. So I wouldn't even hear what he thinks he needs to say.

    I feel sorry for him, because he seem a nice guy. He's just in the wrong position, acting for money, but certainly not serving people. Big difference!
