IRVINE, Calif. - Aug. 11, 2014 - PRLog -- Daniel Goleman, acclaimed psychologist, journalist and best-selling author of Emotional Intelligence, will speak on “How Leaders Can Drive High Performance in Organizations through Focus and Attention.” This exciting event will be held on September 16th at 8:30 on the campus of the University of California Irvine. In his new book, Focus: The Hidden Driver of Excellence,” Dr. Goleman combines cutting-edge research with practical findings and delves into the science of attention in all its varieties. He presents a long overdue discussion of this little-noticed and under-rated mental asset. In this 24/7, “always on” era with unstoppable distractions, Goleman persuasively argues that now more than ever we must learn to sharpen focus if we are to survive in a complex world.
