Daniel Goleman Designs New Emotional Intelligence Curriculum with American Management Association
The two new training seminars are based on Dr. Goleman’s research and latest book Leadership: The Power of Emotional Intelligence – Selected Writings.
AMA’s two programs are “Developing Your Emotional Intelligence,”
“I chose to partner with American Management Association to design my first-ever seminar on emotional intelligence,”
To help launch these seminars, AMA will offer a free webcast on “How Emotional Intelligence Drives Effective Leadership,”
AMA’s two-day seminar, “Developing Your Emotional Intelligence,” will help participants recognize the impact emotional intelligence has on their professional development, assess their current emotional intelligence, identify the four key emotional skills (Self Awareness, Self Management, Social Awareness, and Relationship Management), learn how to apply them to a variety of workplace activities, and build a personal development strategy.
AMA’s three-day seminar, “Leading with Emotional Intelligence,” will help participants recognize the benefits of emotional intelligence to both personal development and leadership effectiveness. Attendees will learn how to develop EI competencies, identify personal strengths and areas for development using the Emotional and Social Competency Inventory, and leverage appropriate EI competencies in order to achieve results. The seminar will also help participants create a culture that delivers results through effective work relationships and build a developmental action plan that strengthens emotional intelligence skills.
The new curriculum will be offered beginning in October and November 2012 at AMA Executive Conference Centers in Atlanta, Chicago, New York, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C. as well as in other select cities across the country in 2013.

About Daniel Goleman
Daniel Goleman’s book Emotional Intelligence argued that human competencies like self-awareness, self-regulation, and empathy add value to cognitive abilities in many domains of life. The book was on the bestseller list for a year-and-a-half, and has since been translated into nearly 30 languages. His most recent book Leadership: The Power of Emotional Intelligence – Selected Writings (morethansound.net) is a collection of his key work on the topic from his books and his articles in the Harvard Business Review. He was a co-founder of the Collaborative for Academic, Social and Emotional Learning at the Yale University Child Studies Center. He’s currently co-chairman of The Consortium for Research on Emotional Intelligence in Organizations, based in the Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology at Rutgers University. Dr. Goleman has received many journalistic awards for his writing, including two nominations for the Pulitzer Prize for his articles in the Times.
