As a church leader, I realize I'm just dipping my toe into the vast sea of business leadership literature with this book. Still, the relevance of this book for congregational leadership is immediately obvious. The authors propose that emotions matter enormously for leadership, and that leaders ignore emotional realities in themselves and the organizations with whom they lead at their own peril.

This means the "Primal Task" of leadership is emot I read this book on the recommendation of a mentor. This means the "Primal Task" of leadership is emotional management - the self-management of a leader's own emotional life and learning how to respect and respond to the emotional realities of teams and groups.

This was probably a more shocking claim in , when this book was first published. It seems that everywhere people are waking up to the limitations of hard rationalism and learning how to take emotions seriously. Still, this book provides a clear and compelling argument substantiated through research.

It also provides some very practical suggestions for cultivating emotional intelligence as an individual and in an organization's culture. I'd recommend this book to anyone interested in leadership development for themselves and those in their field of influence.

I am of two minds with this book. On the one hand, there are some useful leadership frameworks and exercises, specifically: The 4 domains of EI leadership and 18 competencies 2.

The 6 styles of leadership and when to use them 3. Basically all of chapter 7 imagining your ideal self and associated free-writing exercises On the other this book does a lot of work trying to show bad bosses why they are bad, which can be painful to read. As the authors note I am of two minds with this book. As the authors note, clueless leaders with no self-awareness or empathy communicate with "empty platitudes" and the "smokescreen" of business jargon, which just makes everyone more depressed.

Between the genuinely useful chapters there are often chapters that merely serve as a "human manual" for sociopaths. My god is it redundant. I probably absorbed a little, but nothing I couldn't have learned in a page summary of the book- and I took extensive notes. In the end the absolutely terrible writing distracted me far too much from any real learning. This book will likely be better for people who don't already have a psych degree and who do have far more patience than I do.

I mean, some people like repetition to make sure a message really sinks in. Some people enjoy redundancies. For some, hearing things over and over again makes it all much clearer. Jun 19, Jeff Burket rated it really liked it Shelves: Originally published in , it is easy for me to think there isn't a lot that is new.

The reason being is that much of what this book contains formed the foundation for so much subsequent discussion, writing and thought in leadership and emotional intelligence.

The book works through several sections: Building Emotionally I Originally published in , it is easy for me to think there isn't a lot that is new.

Building Emotionally Intelligent Organizations. It contains several useful paradigms and guidance on how to operationalize emotional intelligence; below I've pulled out what are - for me -many of the key passages. Overall is well written, useful, well referenced.

Primal leadership : unleashing the power of emotional intelligence

Most beneficial for someone who hasn't done much reading into EI and leadership, but truly anyone involved with leading or working with others will likely find benefit in reading it and if not, then perhaps go back to the index listing of 'self-awareness' and start again on those pages.

Self-Awareness emotional self-awareness, accurate self-assessment, self-confidence ; Self-Management emotional self-control, transparency, adaptability, achievement, initiative, optimism ; Social Awareness empathy, organizational awareness, service ; Relationship Management inspirational leadership, influence, developing others, change catalyst, conflict management, building bonds, teamwork and collaboration.

Visionary, Coaching, Affiliative, Democratic, Pacesetting, and Commanding be careful with use of the last two! Whatever a leader's repertoire of styles today, it can grow wider tomorrow.

The key lies in strengthening the underling emotional intelligence abilities that drive a given style. The answer is both. There is a genetic component to emotional intelligence, to be sure, but nurture plays a major role Developing trusting relationships support, help, encourage each step in process.

Learning agenda: The rest of the job is to develop a critical mass of resonant leaders and thereby transform how people work together The most effective leadership development works hand in hand with parallel transformations in the organization.

We call those rules norms when we talk about teams, and culture when we refer to the larger organization. Allows team to make decisions about what to do and how to do it, rather than blindly following ineffective norms; includes using 'process norms. Subtle messages Under such leadership, teams over time naturally accumulate a common, positive lore about how to operate with each other. Discussions about cultural issues, emotional reality of an organization, and how it feels to work there usually result in people feeling some ownership of the problems, the dream, and the process of getting from the real to the ideal.

It is up tot he leader to help the organization identify its reality - including the cultural norms that hinder it -and then to explore the ideal vision of what could be and help members of the organization uncover their own roles in that vision. And it is leaders who attune people to the vision and begin taking action toward change.

These leaders naturally nurture relationships, surface simmering issues, and create human synergies An emotionally intelligent leader does each of these at the right time, in the right way, with the right person.

Such leadership creates a climate of enthusiasm and flexibility Such leaders are more values-driven, more flexible and informal, and more open and frank than leaders of old They exude resonance: Another very enjoyable book based on neuroscience -- here, the authors argue that the number one, original and most important role of a leader is emotional.

Humans are very social -- we're entirely constructed that way and we even automatically copy the posture, mood and expressions of those with whom we are connecting with, even heart rate! People take their cues from leaders Another very enjoyable book based on neuroscience -- here, the authors argue that the number one, original and most important role of a leader is emotional. People take their cues from leaders -- the look for emotional responses and behavior to emulate.

Many studies show that good moods result in good work. Leaders need to be able to connect with their constituents and motivate them positively. There are two large groups of leadership styles -- resonant and dissonant -- which drive team emotions and action positively and negatively.

The authors take a deep dive into the different kinds of resonant and dissonant leadership styles --issuing warnings about the latter. How does a leader become a "resonant" leader? The chief emotional intelligence competencies include: It's critical for individuals to identify and refine their values, decide who they want to be, become aware of who they are now and come up with a plan for building on strengths, practicing new skills at every opportunity and establish a supportive network to make this change possible.

Empathy, of course, can be learned. It's important to practice -- the authors remind us, "athletes spend more time practicing than performing! For emotionally intelligent leadership to be effective, it has to work for the culture of an organization. If your organization is not "resonant" or has some challenges and you want to change culture, two things have to happen: Every single individual has to be engaged in a process of individual change so that the entire team or organization can start moving in that direction.

Of course - it's not as simple as just sending a few people off to some seminars or having HR organize training for specific people.

Reward Yourself

The half-life of seminars and education varies based on how well the lessons are supported within the culture to which one returns. Teams need to be brought into the process of transformation to identify the norms and culture -- and most people find it easy to agree on the things that are working well. Getting an accurate picture of the things that aren't working well and coming up with alternatives is the most important part of transformation -- along with practice, practice, practice.

The authors repeatedly stress the importance of leaders communicating with their constituents or team -- understanding their values and dreams. And - you cannot be a good leader unless you are being authentic: And - why do we do this? By developing emotional intelligence skills in all individuals, teams and organizations, you improve performance, morale, loyalty, satisfaction and many other qualities that make people happy and successful.

First, I have to say that I listened to the audiobook. And the audiobook was great! This is an excellent book about leadership! Those are two important topics that are not discussed as much as they should be. For any aspiring leader this is a must read! Oct 13, Lyndell added it. Daniel Goolman is a psychologist who has researched and written extensively on the topic of emotional intelligence.

This book quickly became a bestseller and the material has been extensively used and quoted in many leadership development courses.

Since then, he has written several other books on different areas of emotional intelligence. These are all components of emotional intelligence EI. Unlike IQ, which changes little throughout adulthood, however, EI is largely learned and can thus be taught and developed. Specifically Goolman described five major components of emotional intelligence: In Primal Leadership, Goolman teams up with two other researchers: The core premise of Primal Leadership is that emotions cannot be kept out of the work environment and that leaders who understand this and who learn how to harness their own emotions and the emotions of their followers are more effective.

The authors cite research extensively — including research from the fields of psychology and neurology- to explain the importance of leading emotionally. In explaining how to lead with emotional intelligence, the authors introduce the concept of resonance — which they define as driving emotions positively. This is contrasted with dissonant leadership, which is more rational and far less influential. Four resonant leadership styles are described: Affiliative, 3. Coaching and 4.

The dissonant leadership styles are pace-setting and commanding. The authors use real life stories and examples to illustrate the various leadership styles and to show the difference between effective and ineffective leadership. In the second half of the book, Goolman et al outline how to go about becoming a more emotionally intelligent leader. They emphasize that becoming an emotionally intelligent leader is a process that will take time. The suggested plan evolves around setting a vision for oneself, self-reflection, building on strengths while minimizing weaknesses, experimenting and fostering relationships.

Anyone who had worked with people already knows intuitively that emotions are a vital part of leadership. This book, however excels in explaining how best to understand and channel human emotions for maximum effectiveness as a leader.

Leaders at all levels are likely to benefit significantly from a careful study of Primal Leadership. Feb 22, Margarida Antunes rated it liked it. De qualquer das formas do que li, achei bastante interessante.

This book gets full marks in my opinion, but I would mention that it is not for everyone. This book is idea if you 1 already have worked in a few organizations enough to experience a variety of leadership styles 2 you have attempted and both failed and succeeded in some area of leadership.

This book is then perfect and provides great examples on how to move forward. At the center of this book is a belief in the plasticity of the human mind. I disagree that one should just read the first and las This book gets full marks in my opinion, but I would mention that it is not for everyone. I disagree that one should just read the first and last chapter, though I can appreciate why that one might feel that way if they have, already, superior leadership skills.

For the rest of us, the examples in the middle are instructive on how to be a good leader as well as how to help or improve our reaction to those we follow. Since I must return this book, below is where I'm keeping the very interesting checklist that is in the final chapter: Leadership Competencies: Sep 08, Charmin rated it really liked it Shelves: Honest performance feedback can be uncomfortable.

Improves self-awareness. Opportunity for a leader to grow and be effective. The higher up the ladder a leader climbs, the less accurate his self assessment is likely to be. Another fundamental competence.

Empathy allows a leader to keep people happy by caring for the whole person. This style works best when the leader is uncertain about what direction to take and needs ideas from able employees. The sense that everyone is working towards your goals builds team commitment. Only by getting to know employees on a deeper personal level can leaders begin to think to make that link a reality.

People learn what they want to learn. Others help us see things we are missing, affirm progress made, test our perceptions, and let us know how we are doing.

Where reality fails to meet your ideal for yourself as a leader, represents your gaps. It should lead to setting meaningful standards of performance, rather than taking on an arbitrary normative standard for success that may or may not fit with personal goals. The more personal the commitment to learning goals, the more likely you are to achieve them. They become inhibited in practicing new ways of acting.

Resonant Leaders: People need to connect with one another in real time. They need to talk, laugh, share stories and build a dream together.

Feb 24, Ty rated it it was amazing. I have now read all of Goleman's books. They principally say the same thing which is that emotional intelligence is often more important and more effective than cognitive intelligence alone. After about 1, pages of getting the point drilled into my head, hopefully subconciously I've gained some insight and concepts I can practice. They use a myriad of examples. Which is great but my ability to retain it lacks because as I'm reading I'm not visualizing anything as the authors aren't really tel I have now read all of Goleman's books.

Which is great but my ability to retain it lacks because as I'm reading I'm not visualizing anything as the authors aren't really telling a story unlike a good novel does which produces images with words and therefore people's ability is higher to retain. So all in all, I get the points needed I think and I'm glad I read it. I need to be empathetic and resonant in my leadership.

Jun 12, James rated it really liked it. A very good book on EI and how organizations will have a better chance of success when leadership displays and lives the right EI traits. Looking through past and current organizations, I've seen the leaders demonstrate the right EI traits helping an organization and other leaders demonstrate EI traits that have created toxic environments. This book was also a good self reflection for me to highlight areas I am doing ok on as well as areas where I have struggled in the past and where I'm working A very good book on EI and how organizations will have a better chance of success when leadership displays and lives the right EI traits.

This book was also a good self reflection for me to highlight areas I am doing ok on as well as areas where I have struggled in the past and where I'm working to change behaviors. Would recommend this if you are looking and willing to take a good at your own leadership styles and how they impact the organization and people around you. I think that this is an excellent book about emotional intelligence and how someone can impact their leadership ability through self awareness and self control.

While I noticed that some others had rated it down a star because of the writing style, I appreciated the data and research support provided throughout the book for the theories they were describing.

I think that the practical business examples provided throughout the book provided us with real life reality checks.

I made a great number I think that this is an excellent book about emotional intelligence and how someone can impact their leadership ability through self awareness and self control.

I made a great number of notes throughout my book and will be reviewing the material frequently. Jul 20, Sam rated it it was amazing. A surprisingly adroit application of Goleman's theory of Emotional Intelligence to leadership. It goes to show he's not just hit on a good idea, he's generally a very smart guy. The leadership styles listed in the book the candid evaluation of each none of this everyone is good in their own way nonsense are fascinating to listen through.

I'm very glad to have read this at a young age so I can see what styles to aspire to and remember to utilize different ones when necessary. May 07, Mary rated it liked it. I like management and leadership books that base recommendations on more than anecdotal evidence. These authors summarize other researchers' studies and base recommendations on their conclusions.

It's a good resource for knowing what works; however, the book identifies successful leadership approaches without delving into how to initiate those changes. The first half was brilliant. The second half doesn't need to exist. View all 3 comments. Jun 02, Frank Calberg rated it really liked it.

At the start of a conversation between 2 people, the bodies of the 2 persons each operate at different rhythms. After a simple 15 minute conversation, their physiological profiles look similar. The higher up a ladder a leader climbs, the less accurate hid self assessment is likely to be. The problem is an acute lack of feedback.

The paradox is that the higher the leader's position in an organization, the more critically the leader needs feedback. Additional research on discovering values people have: Using humour, smiling and laughing - Page Research shows that cheerfulness and warmth spread most easily. Irritability is less contagious, and depression spreads hardly at all.
