Despite the proven benefits of emotional intelligence, organizational life typically remains hostile to the world of feeling. Yet without feeling there is no passion or action. The things that matter most to us all have emotional meaning, and this is just as true in organizations as in our personal lives. In The Leader on the Couch, world-renowned business thinker Manfred Kets de Vries explores the role of emotion in personality, leadership, decision-making and group dynamics, and shows how to change today's leaders and organizations for the better by helping us understand the 'shadow side' of leadership behaviour.
