Overview

In his phenomenal bestseller, "Emotional Intelligence, Daniel Goleman mapped the territory where IQ meets EQ, where we apply what we know to how we live. Spending over a year on the New York Times bestseller list, Emotional Intelligence provided the evidence for what many successful people already knew: being smart isn't just a matter of mastering facts; it's a matter of mastering your own emotions and understanding the emotions of the people around you.
Now, in W"orking With Emotional Intelligence, Goleman shows why emotional intelligence has become the new yardstick for success for CEOs and junior hires alike. Drawing on both unparalleled access to business leaders and in-depth research, he documents that star performance in every field depends more on emotional intelligence than IQ or technical skills. And the impact of emotional intelligence is even greater at the top of the leadership pyramid.
Goleman vividly shows how self-awareness, motivation, influence, conflict management, and team-building play out in some of the top corporations in the world today, and points out the damage done when they are lacking. He also creates a strategy for the "emotionally intelligent organization" that will shape training and development programs for years to come.
With examples from real-life businesses, including successes and failures, this program is a blueprint for all who want to thrive with integrity and satisfaction in the new global economy.

Goleman, Daniel

Daniel Goleman consults internationally and lectures frequently to business audiences, professional groups and on college campuses. A psychologist who for many years reported on the brain and behavioral sciences for The New York Times, Dr. Goleman previously was a visiting faculty member at Harvard.

Dr. Goleman's 1995 book, Emotional Intelligence (Bantam Books) was on The New York Times bestseller list for a year and a half, with more than 5 million copies in print worldwide. It has been a best seller throughout the world and was translated into over 30 languages in more than 50 countries.

His 1998 book, Working With Emotional Intelligence (Bantam Books), argues that workplace competencies based on emotional intelligence play a far greater role in star performance than do intellect or technical skill, and that both individuals and companies will benefit from cultivating these capabilities. It became an immediate New York Times bestseller.

Dr. Goleman's Nov./Dec. 1998 article in the Harvard Business Review, ?What Makes A Leader?? received the highest reader ratings ever, becoming the best-selling reprint in the history of the HBR. His follow-up article in the March/April 2000 issue of the HBR, ?Leadership That Gets Results,? became another best-selling reprint.

His latest book, the March 2002 release Primal Leadership: Realizing the Power of Emotional Intelligence, unveils new scientific evidence demonstrating that a leader?s emotional intelligence has an enormous impact on the performance of groups being led and on an organization?s bottom line. Primal Leadership, co-written with Richard Boyatzis and Annie McKee, was preceded by a related article by the three co-authors in the December 2001 issue of HBR entitled ?Primal Leadership: The Hidden Driver of Great Performance.?

Dr. Goleman co-founded the Collaborative for Academic, Social and Emotional Learning at the Yale University Child Studies Center (now at the University of Illinois, Chicago), with the mission to help schools introduce emotional literacy courses. One mark of the Collaborative?s impact is that thousands of schools around the world have begun to implement such programs.

Dr. Goleman is co-chairman of the Consortium for Research on Emotional Intelligence in Organizations, based in the School of Applied and Professional Psychology at Rutgers University, which seeks to identify best practices for developing emotional competence.

He has received many journalistic awards for his writing, including two nominations for the Pulitzer Prize for his articles in the Times, and a Career Achievement award for journalism from the American Psychological Association. In recognition of his efforts to communicate the behavioral sciences to the public, he was elected a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

Born in Stockton, California, Dr. Goleman attended Amherst College, where he was an Alfred P. Sloan Scholar and graduated magna cum laude. His graduate education was completed at Harvard, where he was a Ford Fellow, and he received his M.A. and Ph.D. in clinical psychology and personality development. Dr. Goleman now lives in the Berkshires of Massachusetts with his wife Tara Bennett-Goleman, a psychotherapist. He has two grown sons, two grand-daughters and two nieces.
