Format: PrintBooks

NEW BINDING! Our newest printing of the Building Blocks of Emotional Intelligence bundle features a brand new perfect binding!

The Emotional and Social Intelligence Leadership Competency Model is a unique framework developed by Daniel Goleman and Richard Boyatzis, identifying the 12 specific, evidence-based competencies that are the building blocks of emotional and social intelligence in leadership. Leadership is not defined by formal roles within organizations, because we all have the capacity to lead at any level in our personal or professional lives. Hence this model has deep and wide application.

The competencies begin with the foundation of Emotional Self-Awareness, a key step in building the capacity for self-management, focus, and readiness in further progressing into the interpersonal and social engagements that make our work lives meaningful.

This collection includes all 12 of the primers in this series, one for each Emotional and Social Intelligence (ESI) competency, written by a uniquely qualified group of thought leaders, researchers, and experts on each of the topics covered.

The primers included in this collection are:

Emotional Self-Awareness

Emotional Self-Control


Achievement Orientation

Positive Outlook


Organizational Awareness


Coach and Mentor
