Author John Passante at Barrington Books


Barrington Books is proud to host author, business executive, and Barrington resident John Passante from 1-3 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 30.

Mr. Passante's new book "The Human Side, High-Touch Leadership in a High-Tech World" challenges readers to look at the human side of leadership, in light of the unprecedented information age, where technology can sometimes isolate employees from personal contact with their leaders.

In easy-to-read chapters, he teaches leaders how to communicate better with their employees, and looks at the vital role that leaders play in cultivating tomorrow's leaders. He  also addresses the essence of character for leaders and how leaders set the tone at the top in the culture that emerges at their companies. The book not only serves as a primer for future leaders entering the workforce, but also provides inspiration to seasoned executives to hone their skills and improve their leadership quotient.

Jim McGaw

A lifelong Portsmouth resident, Jim graduated from Portsmouth High School in 1982 and earned a journalism degree from the University of Rhode Island in 1986. He's worked two different stints at East Bay Newspapers, for a total of 18 years with the company so far. When not running all over town bringing you the news from Portsmouth, Jim listens to lots and lots and lots of music, watches obscure silent films from the '20s and usually has three books going at once. He also loves to cook crazy New Orleans dishes for his wife of 25 years, Michelle, and their two sons, Jake and Max.
