Primal Leadership: Learning to Lead with Emotional Intelligence Learning to Lead with Emotional IntelligenceBy Daniel Goleman, Richard E. Boyatzis, Annie McKee, and et al.
"Just as Goleman's first book redefined intelligence, his new treatise...reassesses what makes a great leader." -"Time" magazine. "Daniel Goleman has done it again! ...a fascinating account of how emotions are at the heart of effective leadership. This book is a gem." - David Gergen, Director, Center for Public Leadership, John F. Kennedy School, Harvard University. Drawing from decades of research within world-class organizations, the authors show that great leaders - whether CEOs or managers, coaches or politicians - excel not just through skill and smarts, but by connecting with others using Emotional Intelligence competencies like empathy and self-awareness. The best leaders, they show, have "resonance"-a powerful ability to drive emotions in a positive direction to get results-and can fluidly interchange among a variety of leadership styles as the situation demands. Groundbreaking and timely, this book reveals the new requirements of successful leadership.
