Expert analysis of emotional intelligence for organizations
Author Daniel Goleman applies the rules of 'emotional intelligence' to the workplace. Being intelligent counts in the world of business, but the interpersonal smarts referred to as 'emotional competencies' count even more. Goleman, who wrote the seminal book Emotional Intelligence, underscores his conclusion with numerous studies and anecdotes, showing that those who have 'people skills' are likelier to succeed. Skills that help teams collaborate are increasingly important as coalition building emerges as the model for getting things done. Goleman includes thorough guidelines for implementing effective 'EQ' training programs. Companies that train managers in 'emotional competencies' reap concrete business benefits: increased sales, more seamless teamwork, and constant improvement based on analysis and feedback. We highly recommend this well-written book on how understanding feelings adds to your bottom line.

Packed with Knowledge!
Daniel Goleman followed up his bestselling classic Emotional Intelligence with this equally classic sequel that focuses on how emotional intelligence is applied in the workplace. Insightful and richly detailed, Goleman¿s work educates and inspires without ever sounding trite or sappy, like some annoying quick-fix scheme. If you are leadership bound and think success is all about strategy and technique, this will provide some very useful insights into what people really think about managing and being managed. The most intriguing sections focus on the application of emotional intelligence at work, but it would be pretty useful at home, too (if we could just get out of the office). If you think that you don¿t need to be more aware of the emotional undercurrents all around you, we from getAbstract warn that you need to read this most of all.Was this review helpful?
