A little bit about Daniel Goleman…

Daniel Goleman is a world renowned psychologist and scientific journalist and the pioneer who first promoted ‘Emotional Intelligence’ to the global vernacular.
The Harvard Business Review called it “a revolutionary, paradigm-shattering idea” and chose his article “What Makes a Leader” as one of ten “must-read” articles from its pages.
His 1995 seminal work ‘Emotional Intelligence’ was named one of the 25 “Most Influential Business Management Books” by TIME Magazine.
In fact, the Financial Times, Wall Street Journal and Accenture Insititute for Strategic Change have all listed Goleman among the most influential business thinkers.
