Product Description

Product Description

Daniel Goleman’s Leadership: The Power of Emotional Intelligence is the author’s first comprehensive collection of his key findings on leadership. This often-cited, proven-effective material will help develop stellar management, performance and innovation. The collection makes available his most sought-after writings in one single volume, including:

- Managing With Heart

- What Makes a Leader?

- Leadership That Gets Results

- The Group IQ

- Primal Leadership

- The Social Brain

- The Sweet Spot for Achievement

- Developing Emotional Intelligence

“I’ve pulled together more than two decade’s worth of my writings that best illustrate EI’s positive impact on personal and organizational excellence,” Goleman says. “Consider the book your toolbox. Each chapter is a unique and useful device that helps leaders, coaches, human resources officers, managers, and educators to effectively guide and motivate others.”

Daniel Goleman was ranked one of the top ten business intellectuals by the Accenture Institute for Strategic Change, and The Wall Street Journal included him in its top-10 influential business thinkers in 2008. Dr. Goleman's article in the Harvard Business Review, "What Makes a Leader?" received the highest reader ratings ever, becoming the Review's best-selling reprint.

Dr. Goleman covered the brain and behavioral sciences at the New York Times for twelve years. He is co-founder of the Collaborative for Academic, Social and Emotional Learning, and co-directs the Consortium for Research on Emotional Intelligence in Organizations. His books include Emotional Intelligence, Primal Leadership, Destructive Emotions, and Social Intelligence, Ecological Intelligence, and The Brain and Emotional Intelligence: New Insights.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very interesting content, well written, concise. 23 Nov 2012

This is a good book. I haven't read Daniel Coleman's other books but this seems to be a concise summary of a number of different topics (or aspects) of the links between emotional intelligence and leadership. Each topic is dealt with in self contained chapters that could be described as stand alone essays. Each could probably be filled out to fill a whole book, and I think this may indeed be a summary of a number of different books, but there is nevertheless enough detail here to give an interested reader a good understanding of the points being made.

The topics raised are fascinating and seem to be backed up quite well by fairly rigorous research.

The book is well written and easy to read. I would say the topics in it are very important. I have leant a lot from it and would recommend it highly.

Good book but if you are in a leadership position you should already know this stuff. A good start point though to dig a little deeper into EI.
