Ranked one of the 10 most influential business thinkers by the Wall Street Journal,  psychologist and author of Emotional Intelligence Daniel Goleman has transformed the way the world educates children, relates to family and friends, leads, and conducts business. 

The Harvard Business Review called emotional intelligence—which discounts IQ as the sole measure of one’s abilities—“a revolutionary, paradigm-shattering idea” and chose his article “What Makes a Leader” as one of ten “must-read” articles from its pages. Emotional Intelligence was also named one of the 25 “Most Influential Business Management Books” by TIME Magazine. 

He frequently speaks on campuses and to organizations of all kinds and sizes around the world about how social and emotional intelligence competencies impact professional performance, results, and personal satisfaction. 

Dan has been a TED talk speaker as well as featured speaker or panelist at Google, Caterpillar, Johnson & Johnson, WOBI, Goldman Sachs, ESADE Business School, LVMH, and the World Economic Forum, among many others.
