The book no leader in any walk of life can afford to miss, Primal Leadership transforms the art of leadership into the science of results. Author of the international bestseller Emotional Intelligence, Daniel Goleman teams with renowned El researchers Richard Boyatzis and Annie McKee to explore the role of emotional intelligence in leadership. Unveiling neuroscientific links between organizational success or failure and "primal leadership," the authors argue that a leader's emotions are contagious. If a leader resonates energy and enthusiasm, an organization thrives; if a leader spreads negativity and dissonance, it flounders. Drawing from decades of analysis within world-class organizations, the authors show that resonant leaders-whether CEOs or managers, coaches or politicians-excel not just through skill and smarts, but by connecting with others. This break-through concept charges leaders with driving emotions in the right direction to have a positive impact on earnings or strategy.Goleman, Daniel is the author of 'Primal Leadership Learning to Lead With Emotional Intelligence', published 2004 under ISBN 9781591391845 and ISBN 1591391849.
