Emotional Intelligence Management with Daniel Goleman

We’re excited to welcome the brilliant Daniel Goleman to the Workplace Effect today. Daniel is a renowned psychologist, consultant and leading world expert in emotional intelligence who is well known for his 1995 landmark book, Emotional Intelligence, which was on The New York Times bestseller list for a year-and-a-half. Emotional intelligence has been shown to improve the performance of organizations more generally and make leadership more effective. So, in this episode we explore how we can go about building emotional intelligence into online and offline management culture to reap these benefits.

Digital Learning with Emma Ip from Great Ormond Street Hospital

As we’ve explored throughout this series, the working world is becoming increasingly digitized, which feels natural to many, but how do we ensure that we don’t exclude or alienate those that might not have the same proficiency or digital literacy? In this episode, Lisa Winstanley talks to Emma Ip from the Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) about the importance of digital learning and specifically for those working on the front-line. This episode explores the issues and challenges that can arise from implementing these initiatives (especially at such scale in an enormous organization like the NHS) as well as the outcomes, benefits and opportunities that have presented themselves.
