Emotional Intelligence: Why It Can Matter More Than IQ
Random House Publishing Group, 11. jan. 2012 - 368 sider
INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER • Is IQ destiny? Not nearly as much as we think.
“A thoughtfully written, persuasive account explaining emotional intelligence and why it can be crucial.”—USA Today
Everyone knows that high IQ is no guarantee of success, happiness, or virtue, but until Emotional Intelligence, we could only guess why. Daniel Goleman's brilliant report from the frontiers of psychology and neuroscience offers startling new insight into our “two minds”—the rational and the emotional—and how they together shape our destiny.
Drawing on groundbreaking brain and behavioral research, Goleman shows the factors at work when people of high IQ flounder and those of modest IQ do surprisingly well. These factors, which include self-awareness, self-discipline, and empathy, add up to a different way of being smart—and they aren’t fixed at birth. Although shaped by childhood experiences, emotional intelligence can be nurtured and strengthened throughout our adulthood—with immediate benefits to our health, our relationships, and our work.
With new information reflecting the latest research, this tenth anniversary edition offers a significant updating of the EI model and answers questions posed to Goleman during his worldwide speaking appearances. A new section also guides readers to the best resources in the fast-growing field of EI studies.
