About the Speaker

Daniel Goleman is the author of the New York Times bestseller Emotional Intelligence. He is a psychologist and two-time winner of the Pulitzer Prize.

 

Summary

Many people don’t find their work engaging. They do just enough to get by, remaining unmotivated and unchallenged. As a result, they produce too little cortisol, and their brain state becomes suppressed. Staffers on the other end of the spectrum are overwhelmed by their jobs and their lack of support or resources. Neither group performs at its best.
