Banyen's Description: 

This timely redefinition of what it really means to be smart, based on research at the frontiers of psychology and neuroscience, has redefined the role of emotion in our lives. Dan Goleman’s new introduction to this Tenth Anniversary edition traces the influence of Emotional Intelligence on our culture, on school programs, in business, and on psychological research. It also offers a significant updating of the E.I. model and answers key questions posed to Goleman during his speaking appearances.

I can foresee a day when education will routinely include inculcating essential human competencies such as self-awareness, self-control, and empathy, and the arts of listening, resolving conflicts, and cooperation.

Beginning deep in the brain, Emotional Intelligence shows us the exact mechanism of an “emotional hijack,” when passion overcomes reason. Through vivid examples, Goleman then delineates the crucial skills of emotional intelligence, and shows how they determine our success in relationships, and even our physical well-being. The components of it are:

ª  Knowing one’s emotions, or self-awareness: “People with greater certainty about their feelings are better pilots of their lives.”

ª  Managing emotions and impulse control: “Those who excel in this can bounce back far more quickly from life's setbacks and upsets.”

ª  Applying emotions in action, or self-motivation: “Marshalling emotions in the service of a goal is essential for paying attention . . . and for creativity. . . . People who have this skill tend to be more highly productive and effective.”

ª  Empathy: “People who are empathic are more attuned to the subtle social signals that indicate what others need or want.”

ª  Handling relationships: “The abilities that undergird popularity, leadership and interpersonal effectiveness.”

"Impressive in its scope and depth, staggering in its implications, Emotional Intelligence is sorely needed nourishment. It gives us an entirely new way of looking at the root causes of many of the ills of our families and our society, and many practical insights for honoring what makes us more human." —Jon Kabat-Zinn, author of Coming to Our Senses.

Among Daniel Goleman’s other books are Destructive Emotions (with the Dalai Lama) and Emotional Intelligence at Work.
