"An insightful and original exploration of company culture, and the critical importance of inspiring emotions to spur engagement -- and results. An essential read for any leader who understands that people are what make businesses live or die."
"People First Leadership brings together the best minds in business to make a counterintuitive ― yet powerful ― case for the importance of emotion in organizational success. By adopting the five key roles of Braun's proposed 'Chief Emotions Officer,' you can use the softer side of management to transform your own organization."
--Daniel H. Pink, New York Times bestselling author of Drive and A Whole New Mind
"Over the years I've seen Eduardo interview heads of State, heads of corporations, and global thought leaders. He has now skillfully extracted the leadership lessons and shared them in People First Leadership, showing what the best leaders actually do, and the crucial role that emotions play in changing behavior. "

"Eduardo Braun's book is a magnificently written masterpiece that beautifully portrays why the 'intangibles' are more motivating than the 'tangibles' in creating a dynamic, people focused organizational culture, which leads to personal fulfillment for employees; an energizing esprit de corps for all participants; and mesmerizing results for the entity. Eduardo's book is a 'bible' for those leaders who aspire to inspire."
-- Herb Kelleher, Cofounder, Chariman Emeritus and Former CEO of Southwest Airlines
