One thing that stands out is his acute self-awareness and keen insight about people and the world around him. He knows what is important to him, and why. He has figured our how to live his beliefs and values. He sees other people and situations very clearly. He notices what is happening inside him and around him. John is awake, aware, and actively attentive to himself, people, and situations. And he uses what he sees.” </li></ul>Boyatzis, R. & McKee, A. , 2005, p112, Resonant leadership : Boston, MA: Harvard Business Press.
