The ideas expressed in Emotional Intelligence ten years ago have
taken on a life of their own. They spurred a movement, with enthusiastic
adherents in the business world, in medicine and healthcare, at home, in the
field of education and the world at large. Several million people, including
business managers, human resource departments, healthcare workers, teachers,
parents and students, have applied the ideas and principles expressed in Emotional
Intelligence to their fields with tangible and quantifiable results. Leading
with Emotional Intelligence Conversations is an ongoing dialogue series
that begins with luminaries in the field of business. In the world of business

good news, according to Bennis and Goleman, is that organizations can change,

intelligence to create transparency as a core value and an ultimate goal. Every
organization, from small business to large, private and public, can benefit
from the lessons and ideas in The Power of Truth.
