Synopsis

The New Leaders Transforming the Art of Leadership by Daniel Goleman, Richard E. Boyatzis, Annie McKee

As business reinvents itself at broadband speed, what makes leaders effective has inevitably been transformed. Old assumptions and old modes no longer hold; a new style of leadership that works has emerged amidst the chaos of change. This new leader excels in the art of relationship, the singular expertise which the changing business climate renders indispensable. Excellence is being defined in interpersonal terms as companies have stripped out layers of managers, as corporations merge across national boundaries, and as customers and suppliers redefine the web of connection. Bestselling author Daniel Goleman argues that emotionally intelligent leaders are now 'must-haves' for business today. But many readers have been left with, So now what do I do? The New Leaders answers that question by laying out the map for transforming leadership in individuals, in teams and organisations.

Reviews

'The book is a masterpiece of marketing... Goldman is the guru. We hang on his every word.'
SUNDAY TELEGRAPH


Psychologist Daniel Goleman is best known for his book Emotional Intelligence. This was a bestseller and EI became a buzzword for many in the world of management. Goleman's thesis is basically that our self-awareness, personal motivation and ability to relate to others are more important than the narrow 'raw
intelligence which is measured by IQ tests. In this book he joins forces with two academics to explore the consequences of emotional intelligence for leaders and organizations. The contents are largely anecdotal, with many examples about the manner and style of leaders from businesses large and small. Goleman recaps his basic thesis and, with his co

-authors, demonstrates its applicability to methods of leadership. The emphasis here is on the practical and on implementation: the subtitle of the book is Transforming the Art of Leadership into the Science of Results. The focus is on senior people, but the principles are applicable to any manager. The authors write well and the examples used make their general argument clear. Though the reader may be left with a feeling that Goleman's thesis is largely common sense, common sense is not always so common and the authors cover enough different issues for this to be a useful and thought-provoking book.
