A New Way of Being

Improve Your Emotional Intelligence: Daniel Goleman

Listen on

Episode notes

"If your emotional abilities aren't in hand, if you don't have self-awareness, if you are not able to manage your distressing emotions, if you can't have empathy and have effective relationships - then no matter how smart you are, you are not going to get very far."

That is one of Daniel Goleman’s quotes about emotional intelligence, which was also the title of his best-selling book – which outlined a compelling argument as to why EQ matters more than IQ. In this bitesize episode, Daniel breaks down what emotional intelligence is, and then shares some ways to develop your EQ – including by using mindfulness meditation.

My book Champion Thinking: How To Find Success Without Losing Yourself is now on general release. Drawing on some of my favourite interviews over the last five years, including with Daniel Goleman, I want to challenge our ideas about 'success', and where peace, joy and fulfilment are truly to be found.
