The author of the global bestsellers Emotional Intelligence, Social Intelligence, and Focus provides a fresh perspective on emotional intelligence and how to achieve optimal performance to make each day the best it can be, applicable for both high-functioning individuals and high-functioning teams.
Daniel Goleman returns with a revolutionary outlook on the inner workings of emotional intelligence. While the term itself has undergone many evolutions it has never been seen before like this. With Cary Cherniss, Goleman navigates the complexities of optimal performance and what it takes to achieve it.
Maybe you are burnt out from the normal day-to-day or struggling to find a way to juggle hundreds of responsibilities without losing your mind.

What happens when you are attaining optimal efficiency on a consistent basis? Goleman and Cherniss answer with scientific research on keys to personal and organizational excellence. Challenging Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi's legendary concept of flow, Optimal offers a more realistic goal, one essential to breaking patterns of occupational burnout, reduced productivity, and discontentment.
