The metaphor of lions versus goats as told by author of Give to Get, Vishal Agarwal, is good example of how emotional intelligence does not mean succumbing to our emotions but instead using them to manage situations.

As an educator and Corporate Coach - I am blessed to meet some of the most accomplished business people and innovative corporate executives. Vishal Agarwal is one of the best. His new book is a gift to anyone reaching for the pinnacle of corporate success.

As an International TV journalist who has spent my career focusing on facts and figures, it's reassuring to see Vishal give an honest assessment of life in the corporate world. True leadership is a rare thing - and having a guide to seeking and achieving it is invaluable. I particularly enjoyed the advice Vishal gives in his chapter, The Lion and The Goat, strongly encouraging the aspiring corporate executive to endure what is always a very tough path to success.

A terrific set of stories and guiding metaphors from a successful global business executive. Perfect for the business school student looking for great real-world examples of key concepts they learned in their leadership and organizational behavior classes.
