The Soulful Leader is the best guidance for young and old business leaders. I have worked for many soul less leaders and can attest to their lack of integrity, and empathy that created toxic work environments. This book provides the essence of how and why there are effective leaders and how we all could practice subtle changes that would not only improve the workplace but the world. Doctor C provides this insight that we all can learn from. The book is one that will resonate your inner self, and, if put into practice, will make you a better human being.

-- R Werner

The Soulful Leader is an extraordinary book which elegantly provides a roadmap for effective and compassionate leadership. Dr. Ciaramicoli has provided a detailed strategy that enables us to inform, improve, and empower ourselves, our families, and the organizations we lead. Committing to AIE leadership virtually guarantees a more successful, engaged, and collaborative team in whatever context we provide guidance to others. I've been in leadership positions for over 30 years and have studied the elements and characteristics of what makes a great leader. This is the best book I have read on the subject and highly recommend it to anyone who is in a leadership position or aspires to be.
