Publisher's Summary

Daniel Goleman's international best seller Emotional Intelligence forever changed our concept of "being smart," showing how emotional intelligence (EI) - how we handle ourselves and our relationships - can determine life success more than IQ. Then, Working with Emotional Intelligence revealed how stellar career performance also depends on EI.

Now, Goleman teams with renowned EI researchers Richard Boyatzis and Annie McKee to explore the role of emotional intelligence in leadership. Unveiling neuroscientific links between organizational success or failure and "primal leadership," the authors argue that a leader's emotions are contagious. If a leader resonates energy and enthusiasm, an organization thrives; if a leader spreads negativity and dissonance, it flounders.

Drawing from decades of analysis, the authors show that resonant leaders excel not just through skill and smarts but also by connecting with others, using EI competencies such as empathy and self-awareness. And they employ up to six leadership styles - from visionary to coach to pacesetter - fluidly interchanging them as the situation demands. The program no leader in any walk of life can afford to miss, this unforgettable work transforms the art of leadership into the science of results.

    "Book is good, it is hard to stay with the reader"

    Even though the subject is very interesting it is hard to stay with it. Other readers have a much better ability to keep your attention.

    "Great!! Must Listen."

    I have read many, many books on leadership and management and have listened to quite a few.

    While many books may not translate across the bridge to audio, this one does.

    It is critical information for today's managers and tommorrow's leaders.

    My advice is get it or get out, because those that do get it will plow you under with this philosophy.

    "A new frame of reference"

    I really enjoyed this. While it was a bit detailed in parts (which would have have been easier to read than listen to) the overall effect on me was remarkable. It really helped me understand why some of the things that I had sensed to be true were true. I felt like it gave me permission to do what I had always felt was the right thing regardless of what I was sensing from my "corporate" environment. Empathy is important for example, and an indispensable part of effectively interacting with or leading others.

    "amazing"

    An amazingly simple premise with profound implications, common sense that is incredibly uncommon. A must read for leaders of all stripes, from parents to teachers to business managers. Highly recommended.

    "Way below its potential"

    This audiobook was a big dissapointment for me since, for one part, it is terribly long and could have been cut into 1/3 (so much repetition and blabla, even though "emotional intelligence" as a topic has so much potential), and for the other, it contains a great amount of theory with some case-studies but hardly any practical advice/hints. The narrator's voice compensates for some drawbacks but still the content is rather disappointing.

    "Okay, but nothing earth-shattering."
    Would you try another book from the authors and/or Arthur Morey?

    Yes. This was a decent book and I learned a bit.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Start With Why by Simon Sinek


    What three words best describe Arthur Morey’s voice?

    Paced, clear, and flat


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes, but I have horrible taste in movies.

    "Boring. Abandoned reading after 6.5 hours."

    This book is so long and so boring. After 6.5 hours of listening, I abandoned it. It's just doesn't worth the time. The idea of the writer could be best brought to the reader within an hour or two. The rest is a waste of the reader's time.

    "Okay"

    Fairly typical management book without any earth shattering insights.
