If you think analytical skills, company loyalty, or even competence is the key to success in the workplace, it's time to think again. Most experts now agree that those who climb the corporate ladder most quickly are those who possess a high degree of emotional intelligence. Simply put, emotional intelligence (EI) is the ability to make your emotions work for you by using them in ways that produce the results you want. And the good news is that, unlike IQ and other traditional measures of intelligence, EI can be developed and dramatically increased.Based on an extensive body of research and the author's years of experience in the field, Emotional Intelligence at Work is a hands-on guide people can use to amplify their own emotional intelligence. In plain, easy-to-follow language, Dr. Weisinger explains exactly what EI is all about. He shows how to master the core competencies of emotional intelligence, abilities that include self-motivation, high self-awareness, mood management, and emotional mentoring. Moreover, he includes scores of real-world examples and dozens of practical exercises that accelerate the process, as well as step-by-step approaches to mastering a variety of EI techniques.Aside from showing individuals how they can get ahead by applying emotional intelligence in the workplace, Dr. Weisinger also explains how businesses can benefit through the application of EI on a company-wide basis. Because the development of EI leads to employees who are more creative, more fulfilled, and more enthusiastic, its promotion throughout an organization can improve productivity, speed adaptation to change, improve retention of key employees, and generally bolster that organization's competitive stance.A number of books have been written about the theories surrounding emotional intelligence.
