Daniel Goleman on Focus: The Secret to High Performance and Fulfilment - YouTube

http://www.intelligencesquared.com/events/daniel-goleman-on-focus-high-performance-fulfilment/ Filmed at the Royal College of Music on 25th October 2013. 

Psychologist Daniel Goleman shot to fame with his groundbreaking bestseller Emotional Intelligence. The premise of the book, now widely accepted, is that raw intelligence alone is not a sure predictor of success in life. A greater role is played by 'softer' skills such as self-control, self-motivation, empathy and good interpersonal relationships.

Now Goleman comes to Intelligence Squared for an exclusive talk on the themes of his latest book, Focus: The Hidden Driver of Excellence. Attention, he will argue, is an underrated asset for high achievers in any field. Incorporating findings from neuroscience, Goleman will show why we need three kinds of focus: inner, for self-awareness; other, for the empathy that builds effective relationships; and outer, for understanding the larger systems in which organisations operate. Those who excel rely on Smart Practices such as mindfulness meditation, focused preparation and positive emotions that help improve habits, add new skills, and sustain excellence."

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Rhiengold recommended!  An hour+ on focus.  (Can you focus?)

Howard Rheingold's curator insight, May 19, 2014 3:49 PM

I've been following Goleman's work for decades. As I've mentioned before, infotention involves both practice of the inner skills of attention control (Goleman focuses on focus, which is one important -- but not the only -- attentional aspect that can be trained) and knowledge of how to use information tools. This one hour and 18 minute video lecture concentrates on the three kinds of focus.

I think Daniel Goleman is fantastic. His views on emotional intelligence is formidable. A youtube video to inspire you.....

Content Curation: From Information To Knowledge [Video]

Robin Good: Start this video clip at 1':42" (up to 3':30") and you can get a pretty good idea of what a content curator does and why what he does has so much to do with sense-making, making things understandable for others and ultimately extracting contextualized "meaning" from information "as is".


Must-see. Excellent. 9/10 -



P.S.: Thanks to Howard Rheingold for spotting this clip and sharing it.
