Read full description of the books El Cerebro y la Inteligencia Emocional: Nuevos Descubrimientos:Daniel Goleman introduced the concept of emotional intelligence to psychology. This book presents some new insights into the relevant neuroscience discovered during the last several years. So while I looked forward to reading it, I wasn't expecting it to be only 78 pages. The chapters are very short and to the point, but a more comprehensive treatment would be welcome.
Goleman summarizes his emotional intelligence framework (self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, and relation management) and describes the brain areas involved in each. Sections are devoted to creativity, motivation, good and bad stress, empathy, psychopathy (only 1 page, however), neuroplasticity and neurogenesis. Most helpful to me were the sections on stress and empathy. Goleman's distinction between 'frazzle' and 'flow' describes the serious physical and cognitive problems that come with stress, and the methods to combat stress and develop 'flow'. In a state of flow, concentration is effortless, flexible, and joyful.
As for empathy, Goleman distinguishes between cognitive, emotional, and and motoric (empathic concern). Cognitive empathy is the most primitive kind (the extent of psychopaths' empathy, for example), being able to take another's perspective. Emotional empathy is the basis for feeling en rapport with others, and empathic concern is the prompt for acts of compassion - actually doing something.
The Brain and Emotional Intelligence (***) has some interesting ideas, and is a good summary of the relevant brain research, but doesn't have a whole lot of meat on it. I'd recommend Goleman's other books, or the works of Daniel Siegel for something more substantial.
Read information about the authorAuthor of Emotional Intelligence and psychologist Daniel Goleman has transformed the way the world educates children, relates to family and friends, and conducts business. The Wall Street Journal ranked him one of the 10 most influential business thinkers.
Goleman’s Emotional Intelligence was on The New York Times best sellers list for a year-and-a-half. Named one of the 25 "Most Influential Business Management Books" by TIME, it has been translated into 40 languages. The Harvard Business Review called emotional intelligence (EI) “a revolutionary, paradigm-shattering idea.”
Goleman’s new book, Focus: The Hidden Driver of Excellence, argues that attention — a fundamental mental ability for success — has come under siege. Leadership that gets results demands a triple focus: on our inner world so we can manage ourselves; on others, for our relationships; and on the outer forces that shape our organizations and society itself.
His more recent books include The Brain and Emotional Intelligence, and Leadership: The Power of Emotional Intelligence - Selected Writings.
