The G Quotient: Why Gay Executives Are Excelling as Leaders … and What Every Manager Needs to Know [Book Review]


Book Review of The G Quotient: Why Gay Executives Are Excelling as Leaders…and What Every Manager Needs to Know by Kirk Snyder

Published in 2006, The G Quotient presents seven principles of leadership that lead to increased employee engagement and satisfaction, promoting positive organizational benefits.  Derived from studies of gay male executives, but applicable to all leaders, the principles are explained and illustrated with compelling stories.  A self-assessment for leaders is included as an appendix for leaders to score themselves against the seven principles.  While some claims of the book are based on faulty logic, most of the material is highly useful for leaders of the 21st century workforce.
