Emotional Intelligence

Why It Can Matter More than IQ!

by Daniel Goleman, Ph. D.

Daniel Goleman was the moderator for the 2000 Mind and Life Conference on destructive emotions.

He is the author of two seminal books on emotional and social intelligence, Emotional Intelligence: 10th Anniversary Edition; Why It Can Matter More Than IQ, and Social Intelligence: The New Science of Human Relationships.

These books have had an amazing effect on my life. I was inspired by them to give back to my community by starting a well-being support group called Mindfulness in Healing.

The group is based on the principles of emotional and social intelligence including deep listening, loving speech, and guided meditations.

The results over the past three years have been wonderful.

Thank you, Daniel Goleman!

This video records the talk given to Google employees in 2007 on emotional intelligence.

Emotional intelligence is distinguished intellectual intelligence. It is about how we handle ourselves and relationships.

It turns out the people with more emotional intelligence are more successful than others.


Emotional intelligence is making its way into schools and universities.

The research projects are proving that it can make happier people and increases their willingness to connect, their levels of empathy and compassion, and their ability to succeed in any projects they undertake.

Do you know anyone who could benefit from knowing about emotional intelligence? Please share this with them.
