Successful Leaders and Emotional Intelligence

Screen Shot 2014-04-27 at 11.12.14 AMDaniel Goleman, in The Essentials: An Introduction to the most enduring ideas on management from Harvard Business Review, wrote:

I have found … that the most effective leaders are alike in one crucial way: They all have a high degree of what has come to be known as emotional intelligence (p 63).

Goleman identified five components of emotional intelligence. They are:

Self-awareness
Self-regulation
Motivation
Empathy
Social skill

If you are interested in reading learning more, these components are developed with sufficient detail in the chapter (What Makes a Leader?) within the book (The Essentials). This is but one article among many worthy of reading.
