Emotional intelligence has been much talked about in the last few years. This book goes beyond the hype and gives practical suggestions for developing one's own emotional intelligence at work.Hendrie Weisinger, a psychologist and organizational consultant, defines emotional intelligence as the ability to 'intentionally make your emotions work for you by using them to help guide your behavior and thinking in ways that enhance your results.' Weisinger contends that EI can be nurtured, developed, and augmented. He proves his point by providing processes and exercises to help the reader develop self-awareness, manage emotions, motivate self, communicate effectively, develop interpersonal expertise, and help others help themselves.Weisinger writes in an easy to read, straightforward style. His approach is practical. This makes it especially useful for those responsible for delivering EI training. This is not a book about EI research but a manual for making EI work in the workplace. An added bonus is that developing your EI will also strengthen your personal relationships. If your interest is in becoming more emotionally intelligent or helping others to do so, then reading this book would be an intelligent choice.Was this review helpful?
