“If your emotional abilities aren’t in hand, if you don’t have self-awareness, if you are not able to manage your distressing emotions, if you can’t have empathy and have effective relationships, then no matter how smart you are, you are not going to get very far,” says Daniel Goleman.
Libro incluido en Biblioteca Selecta Forum de Barcelona 2004 El coeficiente de Inteligencia (CI) ¿determina nuestro destino? Mucho menos de lo que pensamos. En este fascinante y persuasivo libro, Daniel Goleman sostiene que nuestra visión de la inteligencia humana es estrecha, pues soslaya un amplio abanico de capacidades esenciales para la vida. Soslaya lo que él llama inteligencia emocional.
Also, Goleman seems to promote the belief that success ismoney and money is success. I quickly grew tired of all thereferences to "star performers," for example. I amafraid salespeople will become even more "fake" andrelentless, and that managers who have a tendency to emotionallymanipulate their employees will misuse this book. Goleman doesnot seem to sincerely endorse respect for the individual'sfeelings or to suggest that managers consider their own feelingsabout the products they are making and the services they areoffering. I am afraid Daniel Goleman has gotten swept away withhis fame, status and pursuit of his own financial success, andhas lost sight of what is truly important to the human species.
