Primal Leadership

Realizing the Power of Emotional Intelligence

Primal Leadership
Item #: 2419

Great leaders move us. They ignite our passion and inspire the best in us. When we try to explain why they are so effective, we speak of strategy, vision, or powerful ideas. But the reality is much more primal, according to Goleman, Boyatzis and McKee: Great leadership works through the emotions. The authors, experts in the concept of emotional intelligence (EI), describe what managers and executives must do to become emotionally intelligent leaders ‘using EI competencies such as empathy and self-management’. The authors also explain how to build emotionally intelligent organizations.

In this summary, you will learn the secrets of primal leadership by:

  • Understanding what primal leadership is and why, when practiced correctly, it creates resonance in your organization.
  • Understanding the neuroanatomy that underlies primal leadership and what emotional intelligence competencies you need to succeed.
  • Understanding the six leadership styles you can use - from visionary to coaching to pacesetting to inspire others, and when to use each one.
  • Understanding who you are and what you need to change to become a primal leader, and then develop a plan to make those changes.
  • Learning how to build emotionally intelligent organizations.
