Emotional intelligence by Daniel Goleman( Book )

189 editions published between 1994 and 2020 in 5 languages and held by 7,562 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Is IQ destiny? Not nearly as much as we think. This fascinating and persuasive program argues that our view of human intelligence is far too narrow, ignoring a crucial range of abilities that matter immensely in terms of how we do in life. Drawing on groundbreaking brain and behavioral research, Daniel Goleman shows the factors at work when people of high IQ flounder and those of modest IQ do well. These factors add up to a different way of being smart -- one he terms "emotional intelligence." This includes self-awareness and impulse control, persistence, zeal and self-motivation, empathy and social deftness. These are the qualities that mark people who excel in life, whose relationships flourish, who are stars in the workplace. Lack of emotional intelligence can sabotage the intellect and ruin careers. Perhaps the greatest toll is on children, for whom risks include depression, eating disorders, unwanted pregnancies, aggressiveness and crime. But the news is hopeful. Emotional intelligence is not fixed at birth, and the author shows how its vital qualities can be nurtured and strengthened in all of us. And because the emotional lessons a child learns actually sculpt the brain's circuitry, he provides guidance as to how parents and schools can best use this window of opportunity in childhood. The message of this eye-opening program is one we must take to heart: the true "bell curve" for a democracy must measure emotional intelligence
Working with emotional intelligence by Daniel Goleman( Book )

112 editions published between 1998 and 2019 in 8 languages and held by 3,714 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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.

48 editions published between 2002 and 2017 in English and held by 3,179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Focus : the hidden driver of excellence by Daniel Goleman( Book )

40 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 2,137 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 )

36 editions published between 1985 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 1,443 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vital Lies, Simple Truths is a penetrating analysis of the ways in which we deceive ourselves. Daniel Goleman draws on evidence of all kinds - from brain function to social dynamics - to reveal how we must distort our most intimate relationships and our day-to-day lives by burying painful insights and memories. This self-deception is our means of psychological self-preservation, the currency of survival in which society transacts. But although self-deception is sometimes benighn, it can also be dangerous and life-diminishing. This important book both illuminates and raises challenging questions about a subject central to our psychological existence

"La inteligencia emocional constituye un verdadero fenómeno editorial que no solamente revolucionó el concepto de inteligencia, sino que agregó una nueva expresión a nuestro vocabulario cotidiano y cambió el modo en que percibimos la excelencia personal. ¿Por qué no siempre el alumno más inteligente termina siendo el adulto que más éxito tiene en el trabajo? ¿Por qué algunos son más capaces que otros de enfrentar contratiempos, superar obstáculos y ver las dificultades bajo una óptica distinta? Un nuevo concepto viene a darnos la respuesta a estos interrogantes. Es la inteligencia emocional la que nos permite tomar conciencia de nuestras emociones, comprender los sentimientos de los demás, tolerar las presiones y frustraciones que soportamos en el trabajo, incrementar nuestra capacidad de empatía y nuestras habilidades sociales, y aumentar nuestras posibilidades de desarrollo social."--Page 4 of cover
