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.

    "Great book"

    But read too fast. Maybe I was not in the right headspace to take it all in.

    "decent 3 hours"

    Overall, this relatively short title is sprinkled with interesting insights and ideas and was worth the time.
    There is alot of info for managers of groups and primarily focuses on building relationships, how and when to use different managerial styles, and why Emotional Intelligence is becoming more and more important in the business environment. Perhaps it would have been more useful if I had read his first book about Emotional Intelligence. He makes reference to it quite often, which can be somewhat irritating if you havent read it.

    "From the Master of the genre"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Daniel Goleman's name and achievements in education and leadership training, as well as mindfulness and ecology, are fully rooted in practical.
    I read this when it was first released years ago and listened to it also I am reviewing it now to praise its foundations
    EQ has become one th3f the keynotes of the mindful community and therapy and business and leadership
