Master Class on Emotional Intelligence


Dr. Daniel Goleman




Over the last decade and a half there has been a steady stream of new findings the further illuminate the dynamics of emotional intelligence. Daniel Goleman reviews what we now know about the brain basis of emotional intelligence, in clear and simple terms.


What to do to keep them firing in the left prefrontal cortex? Well, first of all notice, this is why self awareness is the fundamental skill in emotional intelligence. If you look at, again, when you get the slides at that generic model, what you see is its self awareness undergirds self regulation.

If you don't notice that you're not in the left prefrontal cortex, in other words, if your amygdala hijacked, even low grade, and get carried away by it, you haven't a chance of getting back to the left prefrontal cortex. Intel, you can either let it run its course, or realize what's going on and disengage. So the steps to say getting from the right, to the left, start with wondering what's going on in your own mind and brain.
