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. 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.

Insightful and refreshing
Goleman, Boyatzis, and McKee offers us a delightful grand tour by moving aptly from physocology, sociology, biology, business, politics (among many other sciences) to demonstrate all imaginable aspects and roles played by emotion in making or breaking a leadership. The voice tone is a bit monotonous but it surely worths for the content. Plenty of fables, examples, histories.
Definitely worth it
The basic premise of this book is elementary and abstract yet absolutely worth the listen.
