Daniel Goleman's international bestseller Emotional Intelligence changed our concept of "being smart," proving that emotional intelligence—how we handle ourselves and our relationships—matters more than IQ or technical skill in educational success. His next bestseller, Working with Emotional Intelligence, proved that career success also depends primarily on emotional intelligence.

Now, Goleman teams with Richard Boyatzis and Annie McKee, experts on emotional intelligence research, to explore the consequences of emotional intelligence for leaders and organizations. The authors argue that a leader's emotions are contagious, and must resonate energy and enthusiasm if an organization is to thrive.

Through analyses and examples, the authors show that resonant leaders excel not just through industry savvy but by leveraging emotional intelligence competencies like empathy and self-awareness. They also adopt varying leadership styles—from visionary to coaching to commanding—as the situation demands.

Identifying the ways in which resonant leadership can be learned, the authors show how leaders can groom personal and organizational emotional intelligence to ignite outstanding performance. This audiobook transforms the art of leadership into the science of results.

    " It seems every decade has a business trend that is examined to death. Emotional intelligence is the latest trend to be microscopically examined. This was required reading for my husband's MBA program. This was another book read on a flight from LA to Minneapolis. It was not a bad book but it was not graduate level. This was further proof my husband's MBA program is dumbed down to the lowest possible denominator; if you are willing to pay $90k plus, you will be accepted into the program. The ideas in this book have been covered many times by other authors over the years so this is yet another retread and why it only took 2 1/2 hours to read the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 1/9/2014

    " I like management and leadership books that base recommendations on more than anecdotal evidence. These authors summarize other researchers' studies and base recommendations on their conclusions. It's a good resource for knowing what works; however, the book identifies successful leadership approaches without delving into how to initiate those changes. "
