Genre: Business & Economics

This digital collection, curated by Harvard Business Review, offers four books on the topic of emotional intelligence, found by bestselling author Daniel Goleman to be twice as important as other competencies in determining outstanding leadership. In Primal Leadership, With a New Preface by the Authors, the authors show that great leaders excel not just through skill and smarts, but by connecting with others using emotional intelligence competencies like empathy and self-awareness. The best leaders are “resonant” leaders—individuals who manage their own and others’ emotions in ways that drive success. In Resonant Leadership, Richard Boyatzis and Annie McKee provide an indispensable guide to overcoming the vicious cycle of stress, sacrifice, and dissonance that afflicts many leaders and offer a field-tested framework for creating the resonance that fuels great leadership. And in Becoming a Resonant Leader, Annie McKee, Richard Boyatzis, and Frances Johnston share vivid, real-life stories illuminating how people can develop emotional intelligence, build resonance, and renew themselves. Finally, HBR’s 10 Must Read on Emotional Intelligence presents 10 articles by experts in the field of emotional intelligence, all of which will inspire you to monitor and channel your moods and emotions; make smart, empathetic people decisions; manage conflict and regulate emotions within your team; react to tough situations with resilience; better understand your strengths, weaknesses, needs, values, and goals; and develop emotional agility.

Leading Well: Becoming a Mindful Leader-Coach This book combines two powerful leadership concepts: Mindfulness and Coaching. Leaders who are mindful-fully present, not distracted by failures of the past or fears about the future-lead well. Leading in the moment and engaged with their teams, mindful leaders help those around them keep calm and focused, not anxious and distracted. And when mindful leaders adopt a leader-coach approach-asking questions to help others solve their own problems-their leadership power magnifies. Indeed, when leader-coaches apply the four P's of coaching to both problem solving and career development of direct reports, the individual, the team and the organization all win.

Mindful Business Leadership presents a new model of leadership. It introduces ten very different leadership roles that are required to meet the challenges of modern business. Memorable metaphors and images are created for each, and they are placed in a matrix. Readers are shown how to develop these roles within themselves. Potentially negative aspects of each are discussed, along with material on how to put these to creative use. The book argues that mindfulness is the best way to balance the roles – a mindful leader will know ‘who to be’ in any situation. The last part is taken up with clear, practical exercises that readers can practice to become more fully mindful and develop a clear vision for their own leadership. Mindful Business Leadership is relevant to anyone, anywhere in the world, who is moving (or wishes to move) to a position of leadership.
