An interview with Daniel Goleman

Daniel Goleman and Richard Boyatzis published a highly readable article on Social Intelligence and the Biology of Leadership in the Harvard Business Review last September. Their work on emotional intelligence brought them fame and they developed their Primal Leadership model based on that. The recent breakthroughs in neuroscience improve our understanding of what happens in the brain when people interact. For example, when we exhibit empathy, we affect not only our own brain chemistry, but also that of the other person. Embedded in the HBR page for the article is an insightful interview of Daniel Goleman on the topic. So, if you have about ten minutes to spare, click and enjoy!
