Many of us first read Goleman's writing with Emotional Intelligence more than a decade ago. Focus is a compelling read for leaders interested in the science behind high performance. Delving to recent discoveries in neuroscience Goleman explores the topic of Focus. It's a compelling read for you and will also have things you can carry forward to your team.
One of my favorite quotations from the book is:
"For leaders to get results, they need all three kinds of focus. Inner focus attunes us to our intuitions, guiding values and btter decisions. Other focus smooths our our connections to the people in our lives. an outer vocus lets us navigate int he larger world. A leader tune out of his internal world will be rudderless; one blind to the world of others will be clueless; those indifferent to the larger support within which they operate will be blindsided". (Goleman: Focus, pp 48)
