Katie Boyer asked Daniel Goleman:

In popular culture like the movie The Social Network or the TV series Silicon Valley, start-up employees get a bad rap for having low emotional and social intelligence. Do you think this is a fair approach?

Daniel Goleman Katie:

Look at Google's Search Inside Yourself program. Chade-Meng Tan, one of Google’s earliest engineers and personal growth pioneer, was instrumental with the launch of SIY - a course to help Google employees develop attention training, self-knowledge and self-mastery, and useful mental habits. Here's an article I wrote on ways to introduce emotional intelligence into organizations that don't yet understand the value to their business.
