    Daniel Goleman draws on unparalleled access to business leaders around the world and the thorough research that is his trademark. He demonstrates that emotional intelligence at work matters twice as much as cognitive abilities such as IQ or technical expertise in this inspiring sequel.

  • Sequel to Emotional Intelligence, showing how we can practically apply EQ to our lives

  • 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.Through vivid examples, Goleman delineates the five crucial skills of emotional intelligence, and shows how they determine our success in relationships, work, and even our physical well-being. What emerges is an entirely new way to talk about being smart. The best news is that "emotional literacy" is not fixed early in life. Every parent, every teacher, every business leader, and everyone interested in a more civil society, has a stake in this compelling vision of human possibility.

    Daniel Goleman

    For more than two decades, psychologist and journalist Daniel Goleman has been scouting the leading edge of the human sciences for what's new, surprising, and important. In Focus, he delves into the science of attention in all its varieties, presenting a long overdue discussion of this little-noticed and under-rated mental asset that matters enormously for how we navigate life.
    Goleman boils down attention research into a three parts: inner, other, and outer focus. Goleman shows why high-achievers 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 Goleman calls Smart Practices such as mindfulness meditation, focused preparation and recovery, positive emotions and connections, and mental 'prosthetics' that help them improve habits, add new skills, and sustain excellence. Combining cutting-edge research with practical findings, Focus reveals what distinguishes experts from amateurs and stars from average performers.

  • Can the worlds of science and philosophy work together to recognise our destructive emotions such as hatred, craving, and delusion? Bringing together ancient Buddhist wisdom and recent breakthroughs in a variety of fields from neuroscience to child development, Daniel Goleman's extraordinary book offers fresh insights into how we can recognise and transform our destructive emotions. Out of a week-long discussion between the Dalai Lama and small group of eminent psychologists, neuroscientists, and philosophers, Goleman weaves together a compelling narrative account. Where do these destructive emotions (craving, anger and delusion, known in Buddhism as the three poisons) come from? And how can we transform them to prevent them from threatening humanity's collective safety and its future?

  • For more than half a century, in such books as The Art of Happiness and The Dalai Lamas Little Book of Inner Peace, the Dalai Lama has guided us along the path to compassion and taught us how to improve our inner lives. In A Force for Good, with the help of his longtime friend Daniel Goleman, the New York Times bestselling author of Emotional Intelligence, the Dalai Lama explains how to turn our compassionate energy outward. This revelatory and inspiring work provides a singular vision for transforming the world in practical and positive ways.
    Much more than just the most prominent exponent of Tibetan Buddhism, the Fourteenth Dalai Lama is also a futurist who possesses a profound understanding of current events and a remarkable canniness for modern social issues. When he takes the stage worldwide, people listen. A Force for Good combines the central concepts of the Dalai Lama, empirical evidence that supports them, and true stories of people who are putting his ideas into action--showing how harnessing positive energies and directing them outward has lasting and meaningful effects. Goleman details the science of compassion and how this singular guiding motivation has the power to break such destructive social forces as corruption, collusion, and bias heal the planet by refocusing our concerns toward our impact on the systems that support all life reverse the tendency toward systemic inequity through transparency and accountability replace violence with dialogue counter us-and-them thinking by recognizing human oneness create new economic systems that work for everyone, not just the powerful and rich design schooling that teaches empathy, self-mastery, and ethics Millions of people have turned to the Dalai Lama for his unparalleled insight into living happier, more purposeful lives. Now, when the world needs his guidance more than ever, he shows how every compassion-driven human act--no matter how small--is integral for a more peaceful, harmonious world, building a force for a better future.
    Revelatory, motivating, and highly persuasive, A Force for Good is arguably the most important work from one of the worlds most influential spiritual and political figures.

  • Le best-seller international qui a révolutionné la psychologie...
    Notre destin est-il inscrit dans notre quotient intellectuel ? Pas du tout, si l'on en croit Daniel Goleman, pour qui la notion habituelle d'intelligence néglige un aspect essentiel du comportement humain : nos émotions.Une bonne nouvelle : chacun peut améliorer son intelligence émotionnelle.Puisant dans les découvertes récentes de la biologie et de la psychologie, Daniel Goleman analyse les raisons pour lesquelles un QI élevé peut être un handicap et la maîtrise des émotions un atout. Self-control, persévérance, motivation, respect d'autrui, aisance sociale sont quelques-unes des compétences qui définissent cette intelligence "autre" : l'intelligence émotionnelle.A la différence du QI, l'intelligence émotionnelle n'est pas donnée une fois pour toutes. Bien au contraire : chacun de nous peut l'améliorer, pour peu qu'il apprenne à reconnaître et à utiliser l'ensemble de ses émotions...

  • Il y a quelques années, avec L'Intelligence émotionnelle, Daniel Goleman nous faisait découvrir le rôle éminent des émotions. Aujourd'hui, c'est sur l'importance cruciale de l'attention et la priorité à lui accorder qu'il insiste.
    Téléphone portable, ordinateur, tablette... Soumis à un déluge continuel d'informations, nous sommes de plus en plus enclins à nous éparpiller. Or les plus récentes recherches sur le cerveau prouvent le caractère fondamental que présente notre capacité à se focaliser (sur soi, sur les autres, sur le monde...) pour mener une vie meilleure. C'est cette faculté sous estimée qui nous permet d'accomplir au mieux d'innombrables autres opérations mentales : comprendre, mémoriser, apprendre, organiser de bons rapports avec autrui... Encore faut-il savoir la reconnaître sous ses trois formes complémentaires :
    O La focalisation intérieure, qui correspond à la conscience de soi, nous met en phase avec nos intuitions et nous permet de mieux prendre nos décisions.
    O La focalisation vers autrui nous donne les meilleures chances de persuader notre entourage et suscite l'empathie nécessaire aux collaborations fructueuses.
    O La focalisation extérieure nous aide à mieux naviguer dans le vaste monde, après avoir compris les forces qui le régissent.
    Comment acquérir ces facultés ? Daniel Goleman donne les clefs pour entraîner son cerveau à demeurer attentif, de la même façon qu'on entretient ses muscles par une gymnastique adéquate. Une pratique intelligente de développement qui peut à la fois nous rendre plus performant et plus heureux.

  • Two New York Times–bestselling authors unveil new research showing what meditation can really do for the brain.
    In the last twenty years, meditation and mindfulness have gone from being kind of cool to becoming an omnipresent Band-Aid for fixing everything from your weight to your relationship to your achievement level. Unveiling here the kind of cutting-edge research that has made them giants in their fields, Daniel Goleman and Richard Davidson show us the truth about what meditation can really do for us, as well as exactly how to get the most out of it.
    Sweeping away common misconceptions and neuromythology to open readers’ eyes to the ways data has been distorted to sell mind-training methods, the authors demonstrate that beyond the pleasant states mental exercises can produce, the real payoffs are the lasting personality traits that can result. But short daily doses will not get us to the highest level of lasting positive change--even if we continue for years--without specific additions. More than sheer hours, we need smart practice, including crucial ingredients such as targeted feedback from a master teacher and a more spacious, less attached view of the self, all of which are missing in widespread versions of mind training. The authors also reveal the latest data from Davidson’s own lab that point to a new methodology for developing a broader array of mind-training methods with larger implications for how we can derive the greatest benefits from the practice.
    Exciting, compelling, and grounded in new research, this is one of those rare books that has the power to change us at the deepest level.

  • More than forty years ago, two friends and collaborators at Harvard, Daniel Goleman and Richard Davidson were unusual in arguing for the benefits of meditation. Now, as mindfulness and other brands of meditation become ever more popular, promising to fix everything from our weight to our relationship to our professional career, these two bestselling authors sweep away the misconceptions around these practices and show how smart practice can change our personal traits and even our genome for the better.Drawing on cutting-edge research, Goleman and Davidson expertly reveal what we can learn from a one-of-a-kind data pool that includes world-class meditators. They share for the first time remarkable findings that show how meditation - without drugs or high expense - can cultivate qualities such as selflessness, equanimity, love and compassion, and redesign our neural circuitry. Demonstrating two master thinkers at work, The Science of Meditation explains precisely how mind training benefits us. More than daily doses or sheer hours, we need smart practice, including crucial ingredients such as targeted feedback from a master teacher and a more spacious worldview. Gripping in its storytelling and based on a lifetime of thought and action, this is one of those rare books that has the power to change us at the deepest level.

  • A new integration of Goleman's emotional, social, and ecological intelligence  Hopeful, eloquent, and bold, Ecoliterate offers inspiring stories, practical guidance, and an exciting new model of education that builds - in vitally important ways - on the success of social and emotional learning by addressing today's most important ecological issues. This book shares stories of pioneering educators, students, and activists engaged in issues related to food, water, oil, and coal in communities from the mountains of Appalachia to a small village in the Arctic; the deserts of New Mexico to the coast of New Orleans; and the streets of Oakland, California to the hills of South Carolina.  Ecoliterate marks a rich collaboration between Daniel Goleman and the Center for Ecoliteracy, an organization best known for its pioneering work with school gardens, school lunches, and integrating ecological principles and sustainability into school curricula. For nearly twenty years the Center has worked with schools and organizations in more than 400 communities across the United States and numerous other countries.  Ecoliterate also presents five core practices of emotionally and socially engaged ecoliteracy and a professional development guide.
