Foundations of Emotional Intelligence with Richard Boyatzis and Daniel Goleman



Foundations of Emotional Intelligence is an in-depth video conversation with international bestselling author Daniel Goleman and Richard Boyatzis, Professor at Case Western Reserve University and ESADE. Drawing on decades of experience, these two pioneers in psychology and research reflect on the development of the Emotional and Social Intelligence Leadership Competency Model.

Research shows that leaders who demonstrate competence with Emotional Intelligence are more effective and outperform leaders who do not have these skills. Leadership coaches, organizational development professionals, and anyone in a leadership role will benefit from insights into how to become more adept at each of the Emotional Intelligence competencies.
