What Is The Key To High Performance & Fulfillment? Focus! Daniel Goleman Explains

The bestselling psychologist and author of ‘Emotional Intelligence’ and ‘Focus: The Hidden Driver of Excellence’ Daniel Goleman, argues that ‘attention’ is underrated by many high achievers.

Based in part on his neuroscience results, Goleman has narrowed ‘focus’ down to what he argues are just three key things: inner, other, and outer focus.

He explains that the inner is for self-awareness, the other is for the empathy that builds effective relationships and the outer is for understanding the larger systems in which organisations operate.

Goleman demonstrates his points by using case studies conducted in fields ranging from sports, education and business to the arts.

He suggests that those who are outstanding achievers excel because they adhere to practices called ‘Smart Practices.’

He presents strong supporting arguments and evidence supplemented by his personal and professional experience of over 20 years as a leading researcher in the human sciences.

  1. There is so much great information out there, thanks Mike … now can you engineer a few more hours in the day, so I can pursue my pleasure – learning :). Goleman is a great researcher and his discussion of Emotional Intelligence adds so much to our conversation about the bigger questions even if we only ask them of ourselves.

    1. So true about the bigger questions Sherry. I’ll see what I can do re-engineering the hours too. 🙂
