With Daniel Goleman
Internationally Renowned Psychologist and Expert on Emotional Intelligence
Daniel Goleman is author of Emotional Intelligence. As a psychologist has transformed the way the world educates children, relates to family and friends and does business. The Harvard Business Review called emotional intelligence (EI) — which discounts IQ as the sole measure of one’s intelligence — “a revolutionary, paradigm-shattering idea.” Since its release, Emotional Intelligence has been a runaway success worldwide. Named one of the 25 "Most Influential Business Management Books" by TIME, it has been translated into 30 languages, with over five million copies in print.
His follow-up bestseller, Working With Emotional Intelligence, examined EI in the workplace, outlining its vast importance in achieving success in any professional setting. Primal Leadership: Learning to Lead with Emotional Intelligence (co-written with Richard Boyatzis and Annie McKee) unveiled new scientific evidence that a leader’s emotional competencies have an enormous impact on group performance and an organization’s bottom line. It was a Wall Street Journal, Business Week and New York Times business bestseller.
In 2008 The Wall Street Journal included Dr. Goleman in its top 10 ranking of influential business thinkers. In 2002 he was named one of the top 10 business intellectuals by the Accenture Institute for Strategic Change. A reporter on the brain and behavioral science for The New York Times for 12 years and twice nominated for the Pulitzer Prize, he was awarded the American Psychological Association’s Lifetime Achievement Award.
Dr. Goleman is expanding his article, What Makes a Leader?, the most requested reprint in the history of the Harvard Business Review, into a book of the same title. It will be released in the fall of 2012.
