Daniel Goleman

Appreciating Emotional Intelligence with Daniel Goleman, Ph.D.


Product Description

Intelligence is more than IQ. Goleman demonstrates how our view of human intelligence is far too narrow – that it does not take into consideration what he calls “emotional intelligence.” This dialogue provides not only intriguing information, but solid advice about handling the pitfalls of emotionality and using it in positive ways in your relationship, work and health. It also expands our understanding of how we learn. “It’s emotional intelligence,” says Daniel Goleman, “that allows you to use your other potentials, no matter what they may be.” (hosted by Michael Toms)
