    " Though not a completely novel introduction into leaders, it does raise good points about the importance of emotional intelligence (or EQ) over traditional factors of a good leader. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Armen | 1/7/2010

    " This was a good short take on my kindle. It sort of summarizes the emotional intelligence work that Daniel Goleman writes on extensively in his other works.

    I'd recommend it to anyone looking inward and trying to figure out how to lead people. "

    " Nice audio book. A good combination of, "Am I doing that? I think I am." and "Oh, I really need to work on that!" "

In 1999 Fortune named him the “manager of the century,” and the Financial Times recently named him one of the three most admired business leaders in the world today. Upon retiring from GE in 2001, Mr. Welch published his internationally bestselling autobiography Jack: Straight from the Gut. He now teaches at MIT’s Sloan School of Management and speaks to business leaders and students around the world.
