Format: Paperback
This book has lots of fascinating information about emotions in the workplace. It is presented in a very accessible style that kept my interest consistently with plenty of new scientific evidence to support the theories. I particularly like the 'managing with heart' section that includes topics such as: teamwork; decreased productivity; cost to bottom line; cost effectiveness of emotional intelligence; the benefits of being emotionally competent versus the consequences of stress and emotional obliviousness; & how to criticize effectively. My favorite thing I learned? Laughter & smiles are the most contagious emotion, much more so than depression. I highly recommend this book if you want to create a better workplace!

These are articles selected by Daniel Goleman to be anthologized in a single volume as his research continues on one of the most important and least understood business subjects: emotional intelligence (EI). Opinions are divided as to its origins. My own opinion is that the distinctions between intellectual and emotional capabilities can be traced back at least to Homer's Iliad and Odyssey. Charles Darwin has much of value to say about the importance of emotional expression and E.L. Thorndike introduced the term "social intelligence" which was later characterized as "people skills." Others such as David Wechsler, David McClelland, Howard Gardner, David Payne, Peter Salovey and John Mayer, Reuven Bar-On, Richard Boyatzis, and Annie McKee have also made significant contributions but, in my opinion, Goleman has done the most valuable research on emotional intelligence (usually in collaboration with those whom he always acknowledges, such as Boyzatis and McKee) and then, in a series of brilliant books and dozens of articles, helped more people than anyone else ever has to apply the EI principles in all of their relationships, including but certainly not limited to the workplace.

What we have in this volume are nine essays, accompanied by an Appendix in which Goleman briefly shares new insights with regard to several leadership competencies previously discussed in one of his books, Primal Leadership (March 15, 2002): self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, and relationship management. Whatever their size and nature may be, all organizations need leadership at all levels and in all areas. If viewed as "gardeners," C-level executives should have a "green thumb" that enables them to "grow" leaders for all those levels and areas.

If you are over 40, your introduction to work probably included someone warning you, "The boss might not always be right, but remember he is always the boss." It was not that long ago when command and control was the accepted standard for managing a business.

There are a number of shifts that have made the top down, command and control style of management much less effective. First the type of work has continued to shift to that of knowledge worker. And the younger workers have much different attitudes and expectations about what they want from and are willing to accept in their work.

As local and even national boundaries have less control over where work is being done, all businesses are becoming more competitive. Therefore, it is imperative that leaders find the most effective and efficient ways to inspire and engage their workers.

One of the crucial factors in attracting and retaining a highly engaged and effective workforce is the emotional intelligence abilities of the leadership. According to Daniel Goleman, the author, "Nearly 90 percent of the competencies that distinguished outstanding performers was attributable to emotional intelligence factors rather than purely cognitive abilities."

Leadership: The Power of Emotional Intelligence is a compilation of the key ideas from some of Daniel Goleman's books - Emotional Intelligence, Social Intelligence and Primal Leadership.

In this book Mr. Goleman clearly shows that Emotional Intelligence is imperative for anyone who aspires to effective leadership. This book captures the essence of his ground-breaking book on Emotional Intelligence. You will gain an extremely good overview of what EI is and its impact on the workers, their performance and the resulting profits of the company.

This book is a summary of some of Daniel Goleman's popular books. It has lot of very good information. But at least to me, the content of the book did not seem to flow properly; as if the consecutive paragraphs are copy pasted from somewhere else instead of making a connection between them.

In some cases, the sense is incomplete. After these observations, I am quite puzzled. But still the book is a good summary.

Goleman has done it again and this may be his finest work. It's distiller to the really important features of EI and this book is a collection of his best articles. I would recommend this book to those who want to increase their EI or if your studying this great subject as a leader or student.

Goleman, in this book takes the principles of emotional intelligence and applies them to leadership. His book makes it clear that leaders of all stripes can't afford to ignore these soft skills. Leaders have to connect emotionally with those they lead. Otherwise, they fail to create the kinds of places where people feel supported and valued, which means a great deal in productive workplaces. As a school principal, I see much here that can make me an even better educational leader.
