Description

This textbook introduces the reader to what Emotional Intelligence is and how they can improve their own. Being “bright” or “intellectual” is not enough in today’s modern society. Today, you need to understand how to manage your emotions and those of others to get on. This textbook reveals how.

Preface

We all know someone who is incredibly bright and yet cannot seem to pull their life together. The brilliant student who flunks out of university, or the incredibly intelligent worker who can’t seem to get ahead in their company. We know from our familiarity with them that they have a good to superior intelligence level, but that doesn’t seem to be enough to ensure success. And at the same time, we can probably describe in some form why we feel these people have not been successful. Our descriptions would include certain traits or behaviors that have nothing to do with intelligence.

Over time, scientists have begun to study why standard intelligence along isn’t enough to predict performance in an individual. They have realized that there is another type of intelligence that isn’t related to the standard cognitive intelligence – it’s called emotional intelligence.

This textbook will cover what emotional intelligence is, how you can discover what your own E.I actually is and how, by understanding your own emotions and those of others, take your leadership and management skills to the next level.

Reviews

M.Ibrahim Khan ★★★★★

A good read. We have to learn a lot in life with regard to emotional intelligence. It is about how we live and work in a world which is full of differing people. A big part of our lives is spoiled by our conscious effort to avoid unnecessary clashes.

Kirk Sallans ★★★★★

Very informative! This book has helped me understand myself, and understand my emotions - including how much they affect my life and decisions, and how I can consciously manage them. Thankyou!

Antoine C. Johnson ★★★★★

This is by far one of my favorites. A great self-help book, that likely helps and moves you to mold yourself into a more positive being.

Wayne ★★★★☆

I think it was very helpful and gave me an insight into areas of concern I have about myself and how to handle them
