Social Intelligence: The New Science of Human Relationships
In richly anecdotal detail, Goleman brings to life the entirely new field of social neuroscience that has emerged in the decade since the publication of Emotional Intelligence. He shows that, far more than we are consciously aware, our daily encounters with parents, spouses, bosses, and even strangers shape our brains and affect cells throughout our bodies. Our relationships create a setpoint for our daily moods and influence our immune response; they are crucial to achievement in students and workers; they determine whether or not some genes are expressed, for good or ill. Above all, Goleman explores the foundations of rapport, love, cooperation, and altruism, with major implications for the well-being of our families, communities, and workplace. Whether you listen to this as a lover or parent, medical professional or businessperson, teacher or community leader, you will never see your relationships in the same way again. A New York Times bestseller.
Emotional Intelligence: Why It Can Matter More Than IQ
In this fascinating book, based on brain and behavioral research, Daniel Goleman argues that our IQ-idolizing view of intelligence is far too narrow. Instead, Goleman makes the case for "emotional intelligence" being the strongest indicator of human success. He defines emotional intelligence in terms of self-awareness, altruism, personal motivation, empathy, and the ability to love and be loved by friends, partners, and family members. Because emotional intelligence isn't fixed at birth, Goleman outlines how adults as well as parents of young children can sow the seeds.
Primal Leadership: Learning to Lead with Emotional Intelligence
Daniel Goleman teams with Richard Boyatzis and Annie McKee to explore the role of emotional intelligence in leadership in the March 2002 release, Primal Leadership: Realizing the Power of Emotional Intelligence. 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. This breakthrough concept charges leaders with driving emotions in the right direction to have a positive impact on earnings or strategy.

Transparency: How Leaders Create a Culture of Candor
By Daniel Goleman, Warren Bennis, James O'Toole, Patricia Ward Biederman
"After watching so many American presidents derailed by a culture of secrecy—Richard Nixon and George W. Bush are only the most recent—one might imagine that transparency would become the watchword of leaders everywhere. Alas, it has not: witness Enron and subprime mortgages. Here in these pages, with arguments that are enormously compelling, Warren Bennis, Daniel Goleman, and James O'Toole urge leaders of every stripe to create 'a culture of candor' around them. Please give this book to anyone heading toward the front office, especially if it is oval."
