Recommendation

The authors of this clearly written book draw on deep research and numerous studies of psychology and neurology to show that great leadership is primarily and essentially a matter of emotional intelligence. Notwithstanding the extensive support and the documentation from academic literature, authors Daniel Goleman (author also of the classic Emotional Intelligence), Richard Boyatzis and Annie McKee have written an intelligent, lucid, easily accessible presentation. They contend that, with practice, you can develop the critical leadership competencies of self-awareness, self-management and social/relationship skills. Although the authors may understate the difficulty of developing these abilities, getAbstract finds their arguments reasonable, persuasive and useful.

About the Authors

Daniel Goleman co-directs the Consortium for Research on Emotional Intelligence in Organizations at Rutgers University. Richard Boyatzis teaches and chairs the Department of Organizational Behavior at the Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve University. Annie McKee teaches at the University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education.
