Emotional intelligence by Daniel Goleman( Book )
209 editions published between 1972 and 2015 in 18 languages and held by 7,604 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Emotional intelligence is not fixed at birth. Goleman's argument is based on a highly original synthesis of current research, including new insights into the brain architecture underlying emotion and rationality. He shows precisely how emotional intelligence can be nurtured and strengthened in all of us. And because the emotional lessons a child learns actually sculpt the brain's circuitry, Goleman provides detailed guidance as to how parents and schools can be use this window of opportunity in childhood
Social intelligence : the new science of human relationships by Daniel Goleman( Book )
98 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in 18 languages and held by 4,221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Emotional Intelligence was an international phenomenon, appearing on the New York Times bestseller list for over a year and selling more than five million copies worldwide. Now, once again, Daniel Goleman has written a groundbreaking synthesis of the latest findings in biology and brain science, revealing that we are ʺwired to connectʺ and the surprisingly deep impact of our relationships on every aspect of our lives. Far more than we are consciously aware, our daily encounters with parents, spouses, bosses, and even strangers shape our brains and affect cells throughout our bodies - down to the level of our genes - for good or ill. In Social Intelligence, Daniel Goleman explores an emerging new science with startling implications for our interpersonal world. Its most fundamental discovery: we are designed for sociability, constantly engaged in a ʺneural balletʺ that connects us brain to brain with those around us. Our reactions to others, and theirs to us, have a far-reaching biological impact, sending out cascades of hormones that regulate everything from our hearts to our immune systems, making good relationships act like vitamins-and bad relationships like poisons. We can ʺcatchʺ other peopleʼs emotions the way we catch a cold, and the consequences of isolation or relentless social stress can be life-shortening. Goleman explains the surprising accuracy of first impressions, the basis of charisma and emotional power, the complexity of sexual attraction, and how we detect lies. He describes the ʺdark sideʺ of social intelligence, from narcissism to Machiavellianism and psychopathy. He also reveals our astonishing capacity for ʺmindsight, ʺ as well as the tragedy of those, like autistic children, whose mindsight is impaired

"The secret of success is not what they taught you in school. What matters most is not IQ, not a business school degree, not even technical know-how or years of expertise. The single most important factor in job performance and advancement is emotional intelligence. Emotional intelligence is actually a set of skills that anyone can acquire, and in this practical guide, Daniel Goleman identifies them, explains their importance, and shows how they can be fostered." "For leaders, emotional intelligence is almost 90 percent of what sets stars apart from the mediocre. As Goleman documents, it's the essential ingredient for reaching and staying at the top in any field, even in high-tech careers. And organizations that learn to operate in emotionally intelligent ways are the companies that will remain vital and dynamic in the competitive marketplace of today--and the future.

Focus : the hidden driver of excellence by Daniel Goleman( Book )
29 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 1,802 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
For more than two decades, the author, a psychologist and journalist has been scouting the leading edge of the human sciences for what's new, surprising, and important. In this book, he delves into the science of attention in all its varieties, presenting a long-overdue discussion of this little-noticed and underrated mental asset that matters enormously for how we navigate life. Attention works much like a muscle: use it poorly and it can wither; work it well and it grows. In an era of unstoppable distractions, the author persuasively argues that now more than ever we must learn to sharpen focus if we are to contend with, let alone thrive in, a complex world. He analyzes attention research as a threesome: inner, other, and outer focus. A well-lived life demands that we be nimble at each. He shows why high-performers need all three kinds of focus, as demonstrated by rich case studies from fields as diverse as competitive sports, education, the arts, and business. Those who excel rely on what the author calls smart practice, such as mindfulness meditation, focused preparation and recovery from setbacks, continued attention to the learning curve, and positive emotions and connections, that help them improve habits, add new skills, and sustain excellence. This book calls upon readers not only to pay attention to what matters most to them personally, but also to turn their attention to the pressing problems of the wider world, to the powerless and the poor, and to the future, not just to the seductively simple demands of the here and now
Vital lies, simple truths : the psychology of self-deception by Daniel Goleman( Book )
33 editions published between 1985 and 2007 in 4 languages and held by 1,668 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Vital Lies, Simple Truths' is a penetrating analysis of the ways we deceive ourselves. Daniel Goleman draws on evidence of all kinds - from brain function to social dynamics - to reveal how we skew our most intimate relationships, our day-to-day lives, and our common reality by burying painful insights and memories. This self-deception is our means of psychic self-preservation, the currency of survival in which an entire society colludes. But although self-deception is sometimes benign, it can also be dangerous and life-diminishing. This important book both illuminates and raises challenging questions about a subject that is central to our psychological existence. -- Back cover

Transparency how leaders create a culture of candor by Warren G Bennis( )
12 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and held by 1,436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A highly readable work that exposes the biggest challenge in leadership. In this short and timely book, the authors-a powerhouse trio in the field of leadership-look at what conspires against "a culture of candor" in organizations to create disastrous results, and suggest ways that leaders can achieve healthy and honest openness. They explore the lightning-rod concept of "transparency"--Which has fast become the buzzword not only in business and corporate settings but in government and the social sector as well. Together Bennis, Goleman, and O'Toole explore why the containment of truth is the dearest held value of far too many organizations and suggest practical ways that organizations, their leaders, their members, and their boards can achieve openness. After years of dedicating themselves to research and theory, at first separately, and now jointly, these three leadership giants reveal the multifaceted importance of candor and show what promotes transparency and what hinders it. They describe how leaders often stymie the flow of information and the structural impediments that keep information from getting where it needs to go. This vital resource is written for any organization-business, government, and nonprofit-that must achieve a culture of candor, truth, and transparency.--Publisher description
