Daniel Goleman Introduces Emotional Intelligence [5:13]


Daniel Goleman, leading expert on emotional intelligence, gives a great introduction to the concept and practice.  He starts by outline EI’s four domains, 1) self-awareness, 2) self-management, 3) empathy and reading others, and 4) synthesis and relationship building.  After discussing the benefits of EI, Goleman remarks on the current growth of EI practice, gender disparity, and cultural differences.

Discussion Questions

  • What are the four domains of emotional intelligence?  Why are they each important?
  • How might we practice and build emotional intelligence?
  • How might EI help us in our lives?  What if you had no EI?
  • What does he mean when he says men or women are better ‘on average’?

  1. Hi,
    I liked Daniel framing EI in 4 elements ( know your emotions , manage your emotion , understand others emotion ( empathy ) social skills.


  2. I think the video is a good, quick intro into the fundamentals of EQ. It’s short and easy to stop and reflect about what Daniel is saying.


  3. Well explain, I really like when he said that emotional intelligence develops as we enhance our skills and learn our strength
