We argue for the need to incorporate focus-related skill sets in the classroom to help students navigate a fast-paced world of increasing distraction, and better understand the interconnections between people, ideas, and the planet. The book also offers case studies of model educational programs that include these competencies in their curriculum, and shares best practices for introducing these concepts in schools. The book will be available on August 5 from More Than Sound. You can pre-order The Triple Focus here > http://morethansound.net/shop/triple-...(less)

Daniel Goleman: The Magic of Connection

Think of a person you work with regularly – your boss, a colleague, a direct report. Now bring to mind times you’ve felt a disconnect with that person: you or they tuned out, didn’t listen, weren’t communicating effectively. What was the impact on how well you or they performed?

“Self-absorption in all its forms kills empathy, let alone compassion. When we focus on ourselves, our world contracts as our problems and preoccupations loom large. But when we focus on others, our world expands. Our own problems drift to the periphery of the mind and so seem smaller, and we increase our capacity for connection - or compassionate action.”
Daniel Goleman, Social Intelligence: The New Science of Human Relationships

“In a very real sense we have two minds, one that thinks and one that feels”
Daniel Goleman, Emotional Intelligence: Why It Can Matter More Than IQ

“The range of what we think and do is limited by what we fail to notice. And because we fail to notice that we fail to notice there is little we can do to change until we notice how failing to notice shapes our thoughts and deeds.”
Daniel Goleman
