The Neuroscience of Office Politics and Team Leadership

Instructor: Knowable

According to Harvard-trained psychologist and pioneer in the study of emotional intelligence (EQ), Daniel Goleman, effective leadership hinges on the ability to successfully focus the attention of others. But before you can influence where others direct their attention, you first must master your own. In this Knowable audio course inspired by Goleman’s seminal Harvard Business Review essay “The Focused Leader,” explore the neuroscience-backed pillars of emotionally intelligent leadership, including cognitive empathy, emotional empathy, empathic concern, and social sensitivity. Master these core principles to be empowered to build more productive professional relationships, navigate workplace politics, inspire teams, and lead more confidently.
