What people are saying about ASPIRE

I have often said that effective servant leadership is an inside job—a question of the heart. Reiner Lomb’s book ASPIRE, and the leadership model it is named for, addresses this question beautifully. Read this book and discover, analyze, and apply Lomb’s seven essential leadership behaviors and emotions for creating positive change. When you do, it will unleash your servant’s heart and inspire you to lead at a higher level.”
Ken Blanchard – Coauthor of The New One Minute Manager® and Simple Truths of Leadership: 52 Ways to Be a Servant Leader and Build Trus
This book goes way beyond the typical leadership advice. Author Reiner Lomb writes that great leaders need to have a strong handle on their emotions as drivers of leadership behavior. From Lomb’s experience as a top executive coach the reader learns a well constructed, sequential and eminently practical process called ASPIRE. This book will help leaders become more aware of their emotional states and show them how to inspire others and create needed change.”

Jennifer B. Kahnweiler, Ph.D.Author of Creating Introvert-Friendly Workplaces And The Introverted Leader

This book makes a huge claim. No matter who you are, you can create positive change in the world. Few people believe this, so few people do it. This book is a must read for those who yearn to make a difference.”

Professor Robert E. QuinnUniversity of Michigan, Center for Positive Leadership and Author of Deep Change, Discovering the Leader Within

What a delight. I truly enjoyed reading this book and love Reiner’s work. He is a master at unpacking the complexity of the human experience. His approach simplifies the dynamics of emotions and behavior and provides realistic actionable steps and disciplines to live life intentionally everyday. Reiner’s personal story and those of his clients provide the canvas to see his approach in action. If your desire is to earn the reputation of being a difference maker, ASPIRE is a companion for your journey to the future.”

Nancy M. DahlBoard Director, CEO and Award winning author of Grounded – Leading your life with intention.

ASPIRE is an excellent book. The emotional competencies shared by Reiner Lomb introduced me to a new and provocative perspective for leadership. Practicing these leadership emotions helps me make the dynamic shift to support a bold vision. Practicing emotional competencies gives me the energy for the essential behaviors to lead change and be a better person. I highly recommend ASPIRE to anyone passionate about leading change.

Dr. Bennie L. HarrisChancellor, University of South Carolina Upstate

Reiner Lomb, in his latest book, ASPIRE, offers leaders a new approach to leading change: managing our own emotions to accomplish the behaviors we desire. He uses true and fascinating examples from world leaders changing the course of history to his own coaching clients impacting their teams’ success. I especially appreciated how Lomb focuses on simple and critical emotions, like Trust, yet acknowledges the complexity of achieving it by elaboration: it includes “Trust IN you as a leader. Trust BY you in your stakeholders. And Trust BETWEEN your stakeholders.” Throughout this book, leaders will gain both insight and the ability to lead even more effectively.”

Martha LegareManaging Director, The Gantt Group

Reiner’s “ASPIRE” masterfully links the power of emotional self awareness to being an effective, influential leader. Just as a car “shifts” to a different gear in response to driving conditions, so can everyone (we are all leaders) control our own emotional states, and responses. By “shifting” to the desired emotion, we “drive” our behaviors which are conducive to influencing others in fostering meaningful change. This ability is foundational in supporting Reiner’s premise that “a leader aspires to create positive, aspirational change”

Bret LessmanFormer senior executive in Organizational Development with international organizations, including Hewlett-Packard and Siemens AG

As Reiner Lomb eloquently articulates in ASPIRE, the day of emotions-centered leadership has arrived. Emotions drive your actions and those of your team. They determine what you say and how you say it. Everything you do as a leader is influenced by emotions. Emotional competence is no longer a nice-to-have for leaders. Reading this book will give you a practical understanding of how you can immediately begin leveraging emotions for greater effectiveness. You’ll be grateful you took the time. I highly recommend it!”

Dan Newbyauthor of The Field Guide to Emotions and founder of The School of Emotions.

I couldn’t agree more with Reiner Lomb. ASPIRE is essential for the leaders of our time. The organizations and institutions that have the power to change the world are run by emotional beings. Fear, resentment, anger and distrust keep us from collaborating on the big challenges of our time. ASPIRE offers leaders and change-makers the essential emotional competencies to change that. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is passionate about creating positive change.”

Klaus Moegling, Ph.D.Assoc. Professor, teacher trainer and author of Realignment. A Peaceful and Sustainably Developed World is (Still) Possible.

In Aspire Reiner Lomb identifies seven essential emotions that drive seven key leadership behaviors. Lomb brings these emotions and behaviors to life with engaging stories and examples from his own work as a coach, giving readers a clear understanding of how they can be put into practice and the benefits for doing so.”

Charles Feltman, – executive coach and author The Thin Book of Trust: An Essential Primer for Building Trust at Work

Successful organizational change is dependent on how the leader shows up. The seven essential emotions shared by Reiner Lomb in his thought provoking book provide the reader with important leadership qualities that when practiced lead to positive organizational change. Before starting your change journey read this book.”
