Psychologist and former New York Times reporter Daniel Goleman presented us with an important idea - “Emotional Intelligence” - it challenges the old concept of IQ as the most important measure of one’s abilities.
But his newest research might be even more important for our current world - filled with multiple screens and distractions. It’s all about “Focus.”
Goleman’s new book delves into a new “science of attention” - that lets us know what parts of our brain are working - and how well. The book explores new findings from neuroscience labs and “explains why attention is a little-noticed mental asset that makes a huge difference in how well we find our way” in life. He’s using this as a way to explain leadership and how good leaders interact with others.
Do you have trouble with “focusing” on the task at hand - or on long-term goals?
