Daniel Goleman is an internationally known psychologist who lectures frequently to professional groups, business audiences, and on college campuses. As a science journalist Goleman reported on the brain and behavioral sciences for The New York Times for many years. His 1995 book, Emotional Intelligence was on The New York Times bestseller list for a year-and-a-half, with more than 5,000,000 copies in print worldwide in 40 languages, and has been a best seller in many countries. Apart from his books on emotional intelligence, Goleman has written books on topics including self-deception, creativity, transparency, meditation, social and emotional learning, ecoliteracy and the ecological crisis.
The Harvard Business Review called emotional intelligence— which discounts IQ as the sole measure of one’s abilities — “a revolutionary, paradigm-shattering idea” and chose his article “What Makes a Leader” as one of ten “must-read” articles from its pages. Emotional Intelligence was named one of the 25 “Most Influential Business Management Books” by TIME Magazine. The Financial Times, Wall Street Journal and Accenture Insititute for Strategic Change have listed Goleman among the most influential business thinkers.
Goleman is a co-founder of the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning, originally at the Yale Child Studies Center and now at the University of Illinois at Chicago. CASEL’s mission centers on bringing evidence-based programs in emotional literacy to schools worldwide.
He currently co-directs the Consortium for Research on Emotional Intelligence in Organizations at Rutgers University. The consortium fosters research partnerships between academic scholars and practitioners on the role emotional intelligence plays in excellence.
Goleman is a board member of the Mind & Life Institute, which fosters dialogues and research collaborations among contemplative practitioners and scientists. Goleman has organized a series of intensive conversations between the Dalai Lama and scientists, which resulted in the books Healthy Emotions, and Destructive Emotions. He is currently editing a book from the most recent dialogue on ecology, interdependence, and ethics.
Goleman’s work as a science journalist has been recognized with many awards, including the Washburn Award for science journalism, a Lifetime Career Award from the American Psychological Association, and he was made a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in recognition of his communicating science to the general public.
Daniel Goleman’s bestseller “Emotional Intelligence: Why It Matters More Than IQ,” completely redefined our understanding of our emotions. He argues that IQ is important, but intellect alone is no guarantee of adeptness in managing one’s own emotions or our relationships. We need a different kind of intelligence to take in and handle emotions in ourselves and others, and to make better personal decisions, resolve conflicts, or motivate ourselves or others. Becoming emotionally intelligent lets us be more skillful and wiser in each new circumstance.
In this engagement, Daniel Goleman invites you to join him in examining how emotional intelligence shapes what we do and offers you tools to understand and harness these influences to positive ends.
We all know technology is transforming the workplace. But Daniel Goleman, the leading authority on Emotional Intelligence, brings good news: Even as AI continues to automate logic-based tasks—such as diagnosing medical cases and managing investments—the human skills that technology cannot replace will become increasingly important. EI differentiates humans from the machine-like abilities of AI and gives you highly valued skills. The World Development Report 2019 described a rising premium for workers who excel at teamwork, relationship management, and adaptability—all emotional intelligence competencies. Similarly, new research on sustainable skills for the digital age found that “human capital will remain the most valuable asset an organization can use to gain competitive advantage.” To further prove Goleman’s point, in 2020, The World Economic Forum identified emotional intelligence (EI) as one of the top workplace skills. And as we begin moving into a new, post-pandemic era of work where empathy matters more now, we would all do well to strengthen this competence, along with their communication and relationship skills. In this engagement, Daniel Goleman invites you to consider emotional intelligence and its growing importance as we navigate a future workplace transformed by technology and new norms created by outside forces like the COVID-19 pandemic. Dive into proven strategies for developing emotional intelligence and how these strategies let you and your organizations evolve and remain relevant in the digital age.
Although the 2020–21 academic year ended on a high note—with rising vaccination rates, outdoor in-person graduations, and access to at least some in-person learning for 98 percent of students—it was, as a whole, perhaps one of the most challenging for educators and students in our nation’s history. From the initial closures in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic to abrupt transitions to online learning and on-and-off modified in-person sessions, it is time to take stock of the impact of the pandemic on student learning and well-being. In this engagement, join the authority on emotional intelligence and social-emotional learning Daniel Goleman and dig deep into how helping children master basics like emotional awareness and self-management, empathy and social skills can support children’s development and mental well-being during this time.
Emotional intelligence drives profit and growth for a company, just as it generates higher performance for the individual. But how do you build an emotionally intelligent organization? It begins with emotionally intelligent leaders at every level.
