Publisher's Summary

Daniel Goleman's international best seller 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.
Drawing from decades of analysis, the authors show that resonant leaders excel not just through skill and smarts but also by connecting with others, using EI competencies such as empathy and self-awareness. And they employ up to six leadership styles - from visionary to coach to pacesetter - fluidly interchanging them as the situation demands. The program no leader in any walk of life can afford to miss, this unforgettable work transforms the art of leadership into the science of results.

This opened my eyes

I started listening to this book one weekend, while I was hanging suspended ceiling in my basement. There were several times, that afternoon, that I found myself just standing there listening instead of working on my project.

The author helped me realize that my management style had evolved over the years and I had become the manager that I would not want to work for. His analogy of the frog boiling in water was me.

I have since made a conscious effort to become the manager that I was when I began my career. I revisit this book occasionally, to remind myself.

A must read

I will start with a caveat: This is long - and at times the focus on the actual functioning of the brain is a bit to indepth - so buckle down because it is a must read. It provides a data based approach to management and leadership, and should be a key reading of all new managers, executives and leaders. Too often, the market is filled with 'how I did it' books, which neglect to note that how the author did it is not universally applicable. By understanding all of the different style, you will learn to pick the styles that are appropriate for your situation and personality

Well recommended

I would like to recommend this book to anyone who is looking to improve their knowledge of management techniques. It is simple to read and therefore understand and presents some challenging concepts that need to be understood. These can easily be applied to the working enviroment without any considerable challenges.

I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did and look forward to seeing your own reviews of this book at a later date.

Enjoy!

Life Changing

Great hearing about these new concepts and see how well they fit into many areas in need of change in our own organisation where an answer to our problems just didn't seem to exist. Just found some ideas a little hard to grasp, but overall a great book.
