Focused Leader

December 17, 2013 at 8:18 pm Leave a comment

Daniel Goleman, the emotional intelligence guy, has released a new book titled Focus: The Hidden Driver of Excellence.

The December 2013 issue of Harvard Business Review includes an article by Goleman titled: The Focused Leader: How effective executives direct their own – and their organizations’ – attention.

From page page 60: ” A focused leader is not the person concentrating on the three most important priorities of the year, or the most brilliant systems thinker, or the one most in tune with corporate culture. Focused leaders can command the full range of their own attention: they are in touch with their inner feelings, they can control their impulses, they are aware of how others see them, they understand what others need from them, they can weed out distractions, and also allow their minds to roam widely, free of preconceptions”

So if the book is more than what you want to read over the holidays, this article may be the thing for you. TDSB teachers may borrow the book or request a copy of the article: (416) 395-8289 or
