Important New Information!,
This review is from: The Brain and Emotional Intelligence: New Insights (Kindle Edition)
I had the opportunity to read Daniel Goleman's terrific new book, The Brain and Emotional Intelligence: New Insights, released April 15th. Dan clearly explains the latest research on how our brains work in helping us understand and manage our emotions and relate to others effectively, aka Emotional and Social Intelligence (EI). He explains why bad moods are so contagious, why virtual messages such as e-mail can make us so angry, and how it is that leaders set the tone for their entire organization.
In this fascinating and quick read, Dan provides proven ways to increase EI in both children and adults and he explains how organizations can help their employees experience optimal performance. I highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to understand EI and how they can increase their EI competencies. I also recommend this book to anyone who works in or with organizations because he provides terrific insight into how to increase communication within and across teams to improve morale and performance.
