Author Biography

 

Annie McKee has coauthored two groundbreaking books on leadership, Primal Leadership (with Daniel Goleman and Richard Boyatzis) and Resonant Leadership (also with Boyatzis), and her newest book, Becoming a Resonant Leader was published in March 2008. She serves as Adjunct Professor at the Graduate School of Education at the University of Pennsylvania and teaches at the Wharton School’s Aresty Institute of Executive Education. Annie is the founder of the Teleos Leadership Institute, a consultancy serving managers and leaders of businesses and not-for-profits all over the world. She received her doctorate in

organizational behavior from Case Western Reserve University and her baccalaureate degree, summa cum laude, from Chaminade University in Honolulu. Her life’s work has been to support people in reaching their full potential as employees, leaders, and people as they contribute to their families, organizations, and communities. As she puts it, “My mission is to, one by one, with leader after leader, help others embrace the hope that carried me through my life. If I can help people experience hope and find their dreams, and give them the power to realize them, I will consider my life worthwhile.”
