Emotional Intelligence: Leading and Managing

For decades, some of the finest leadership thinkers have recognized that emotions play a vital role in organizational life. Henry Mintzberg, in a 1976 Harvard Business Review article, suggested that it is in the realm of intuition, rather than analysis, we should look for the "lost keys to management." More recently, theorists like Peter Senge, Stephen Covey, and others speak out about the importance of the inner life.
