Book Description

6 Jun 2002
As business reinvents itself at broadband speed, what makes leaders effective has inevitably been transformed. Old assumptions and old modes no longer hold; a new style of leadership that works has emerged amidst the chaos of change. This new leader excels in the art of relationship, the singular expertise which the changing business climate renders indispensable. Excellence is being defined in interpersonal terms as companies have stripped out layers of managers, as corporations merge across national boundaries, and as customers and suppliers redefine the web of connection. Bestselling author Daniel Goleman argues that emotionally intelligent leaders are now 'must-haves' for business today. But many readers have been left with, So now what do I do? The New Leaders answers that question by laying out the map for transforming leadership in individuals, in teams and organizations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Goleman's best book yet - start here! 14 Sep 2004
By Amazon Customer VINE VOICE
Goleman's latest book is his best yet. It's considerably more compact and readable than the rather sprawling "Working With Emotional Intelligence", and his model of EI has now become more coherent.
The previous five 'competences' of emotional intelligence have now become four: Self-Awareness, Self-Management, Social Awareness, and Relationship Management. Motivation has been folded into Self-Management in the new model.
The book is particularly concerned with applying emotional intelligence to corporate leadership - a vital question as teams and organisations tend to take their emotional tone from their leaders.
It includes an inventory of six different leadership styles, from "Commanding" to "Visionary", with their different effects and ideas on when each is appropriate. It also includes Boyatzis' model for self-directed learning (a very useful coaching model), loads of advice for building emotional intelligence in teams and organisations, and what research actually has shown to work in goal setting. The writing style will be familiar to readers of Goleman's previous books - each element of the EI model is illustrated by stories from the business world and lashings of well-sourced scientific and psychological backup.
A welcome innovation is the inclusion of a few helpful "how-to" tips (on, for example, establishing your vision for the future and setting sustainable goals), which have been lacking in previous books.
How good is this book? Well, it finally convinced me to stump up two grand to become an accredited deliverer of the Goleman/Hay Group Emotional Competence Inventory - their 360 emotional intelligence assessment for leaders and key professionals - and I'm very glad I did.

This is a very good book. It's uncannily like Primal Leadership. In fact, it's the same book. The publisher, inexplicably, given the power of the title 'Primal Leadership', called it 'The New Leaders' for the UK market. So, I'm only posting this to say don't mistakenly buy it twice under its different titles...

4.0 out of 5 stars Really good.... 24 Aug 2002
I've read other leadership books but this was the first one I've read based on EQ that also presented some scientific concepts behind leadership development. More detail on the "how to" for team and organisational level leadership would be great. I really enjoyed it and would recommend it.

2.0 out of 5 stars over blown, over hyped and over here! 23 Mar 2011
I enjoyed the first 100 or so pages and liked the concept of resonance, however after that the book went downhill! Most of the examples are laboured at best and only partially relevant. Maybe a good editor could have trimmed many of the examples and tightened up both the relevance and the impact.

For many i was left with a "so what ..." feeling. Sadly not for me!

3.0 out of 5 stars Overall quite useful.
A bit too americanised but Goleman is a yank so it makes sense. Good advise for a leader from any field and a good section on EI.
