Daniel Goleman: Are You Too Shy to Lead?

Interested in leadership? Margaret Wheatley will be speaking on Perseverance: Leadership in Turbulent Times Oct 19-20.

What does it take to be a leader? Or more importantly, what does it take to make a leader? That's the question that Daniel Goleman wants to address. 

Goleman, the author of Emotional Intelligence and a former guest of the DLC's Speakers Series, says that leaders are made, not born. In his blog post on Psychology Today, Goleman says that for too long parents of "shy" children have wrongly assumed shyness is a fixed trait.
