Primal Leadership : Learning to Lead with Emotional Intelligence
Daniel Goleman, Richard Boyatzis and Annie McKee
Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:
Daniel Goleman's international bestseller Emotional Intelligence forever changed our concept of "being smart," showing how emotional intelligence (EI)-how we handle ourselves and our relationships-can determine life success more than IQ. Then, Working with Emotional Intelligence revealed how stellar career performance also depends on EI.
Now, Goleman teams with renowned EI researchers Richard Boyatzis and Annie McKee to explore the role of emotional intelligence in leadership. Unveiling neuroscientific links between organizational success or failure and "primal leadership," the authors argue that a leader's emotions are contagious. If a leader resonates energy and enthusiasm, an organization thrives; if a leader spreads negativity and dissonance, it flounders. This breakthrough concept charges leaders with driving emotions in the right direction to have a positive impact on earnings or strategy.
Drawing from decades of analysis within world-class organizations, the authors show that resonant leaders-whether CEOs or managers, coaches or politicians-excel not just through skill and smarts, but by connecting with others using EI competencies like empathy and self-awareness. And they employ up to six leadership styles-from visionary to coaching to pacesetting-fluidly interchanging them as the situation demands.
The authors identify a proven process through which leaders can learn to:

A great book for everyone...mothers, bosses, students, etc. February 7, 2003
Reviewer: from Silicon Valley, CA United States
This book is excellent. I got the book on tape. The research and brain anatomy is fascinating. I cannot keep my ears off this book on tape. I learn several new concepts at every listening. There was one agrument made trying to compare a marriage to a worker-boss relationship, which does not appeal to me...my marriage is much more sacred and to think of my marrige in business terms turns my stomach. This book is not just for leaders in organizations, it would be helpful and fascinating for many different roles - motherhood, students, teachers, etc.
