Emotional Intelligence (2 cassettes)

Overview

Is IQ destiny? Not nearly as much as we think. This fascinating and persuasive program argues that our view of human intelligence is far too narrow, ignoring a crucial range of abilities that matter immensely in terms of how we do in life.

Drawing on groundbreaking brain and behavioral research, Daniel Goleman shows the factors at work when people of high IQ flounder and those of modest IQ do well. These factors add up to a different way of being smart — one he terms "emotional ...

Overview

Is IQ destiny? Not nearly as much as we think. This fascinating and persuasive program argues that our view of human intelligence is far too narrow, ignoring a crucial range of abilities that matter immensely in terms of how we do in life.

Drawing on groundbreaking brain and behavioral research, Daniel Goleman shows the factors at work when people of high IQ flounder and those of modest IQ do well. These factors add up to a different way of being smart — one he terms "emotional intelligence." This includes self-awareness and impulse control, persistence, zeal and self-motivation, empathy and social deftness.

These are the qualities that mark people who excel in life, whose relationships flourish, who are stars in the workplace. Lack of emotional intelligence can sabotage the intellect and ruin careers. Perhaps the greatest toll is on children, for whom risks include depression, eating disorders, unwanted pregnancies, aggressiveness and crime.

But the news is hopeful. Emotional intelligence is not fixed at birth, and the author shows how its vital qualities can be nurtured and strengthened in all of us. And because the emotional lessons a child learns actually sculpt the brain's circuitry, he provides guidance as to how parents and schools can best use this window of opportunity in childhood. The message of this eye-opening program is one we must take to heart: the true "bell curve" for a democracy must measure emotional intelligence

Drawing of groundbreaking brain and behavioral research, Goleman shows the factors at work when people of high IQ flounder and those of modest IQ do well. These factors add up to a different way of being smart--one he terms "emotional intelligence." Emotional intelligence is not fixed at birth, and the author shows how its vital qualities can be nurtured and strengthened in everyone. Currently available.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
This international #1 bestseller, which spent a year on PW's list, explains why EI can be more important than IQ. (July)
Library Journal
Scientific data emerging from studies using new brain imaging technologies have yielded fresh understanding of how emotions work and, argues the author, suggest ways to regulate the more negative emotions responsible for the horrendous acts of violence that are the stuff of daily headlines. The book calls for universal adoption of educational curricula that teach youngsters how to regulate their emotional responses and to resolve conflict peacefully. Along the way Goleman summarizes much of the best psychological work of the last few decades on such topics as the importance of learned optimism, the theory of multiple intelligences, the role of innate temperamental differences, and the importance of emotional intelligence in marriage, management, and medicine. Based on good empirical data (unlike many popular psychology books), this fine example is recommended for academic and larger public libraries.Mary Ann Hughes, Neill P.L., Pullman, Wash.

    Emotional Intelligence 2.0 is better

    When this book came out in 1995 it was earth shattering for a lot of people, myself included, and I've enjoyed it and learned from it immensely since then. It details why IQ is not the sole predictor of success, and it reviews powerful academic studies that show how emotional intelligence impacts important life outcomes. Fifteen years have passed though, and the book has become outdated. It also doesn't show you how to improve your EQ, which is something that researchers have discovered how to do during the last decade.

    Emotional Intelligence 2.0 was published in the second half of 2009 (I just got it) and I love what it does. 2.0 has a step-by-step program that I used to increase my emotional intelligence, as well as access to an online emotional intelligence test that showed me where I need to improve. Emotional intelligence has finally come full circle!

    Emotional Intelligence

    This book just confirms what I've been thinking for years- intelligence, that is "book smarts", is just ONE piece of what contributes to a person's overall success in life. You can be the smartest person in the world, but if you don't have other qualities like self-esteem or persistence- well, you're not going to be a happy person. Also interesting is that intelligence isn't linked to being a happy person anyway. Case in point, there is no scientific literature linking IQ or academic ability to happiness levels (check out "Finding Happiness in a Frustrating World" for more on this). Anyway, this book does a good job of elaborating on the idea that intelligence will only get you so far in life- and spends its time telling you why. Here's a quick rundown of the book's five parts:

    -Part 1 talks about the brain's "emotional architecture"
    -Part 2 shows the reader how neurological givens play out in the most basic flair for living called "emotional intelligence"
    -Part 3 examines some key differences this aptitude makes
    -Part 4 gets into emotional intelligence and childhood
    -Part 5 explores the hazards of not mastering the emotional side of things

    So, if the idea of improving your life by taking a look at the emotional side of things sounds interesting to you, I would highly recommend checking this book it out.

    Emotional Intelligence

    Emotional Intelligence is a an Excellent book packed with data which supports the premise we are emotional beings. Facts are important, logic may make sense, metrics and statistics can guide us, however, we operate based on emotional data and needs. Daniel Goleman's book is not a quick read by any means, but well worth the time. And, his studies give perspective to IQ versus Emotional Intelligence. Know Thy Emotional Self and understand ones moods and the effect on our daily interactions. A decade old, but a fundamental read today!

    Excellent book

    This book gives you an understanding about why people become emotional and emotionally overwhelmed. You learn about the parts of the brain that are responsible for emotional responses, and the various factors involved. I would recommend reading this great book in tandem with Optimal Thinking: How to Be Your Best Self which provides the specific messages of each emotion and how to best deal with them. Both books are first-rate.

    An Important Perspective on Leadership

    I enjoyed this book so much because Goleman presents a very excellent perspective on leadership and the need for emotional maturity and sensitivity. The requirement for emotional intelligence in organizational leadership is critical in today's business world. Highly recommend this book.

    Great Introduction to the Subject

    As someone who struggles with social interactions, this book points out many things I have not noticed before. It inspired me to focus on mindful interactions while using fun antidotes and scientific experiments.

    Somewhat convincing

    When I read Dr. Daniel Goleman's first version of this book, I was not convinced that he was on point. Rather, I thought his well-written and researched book provided excellent information about the neurological basis of emotions. His definition of the criteria seemed geared to social intelligence. This update clears up a few of those issues, but not all.

    I recommend Dr. Rosalene Glickman's book, Optimal Thinking: How to be your best self as a clear guide to understanding and resolving emotions.

    Thought Provoking and Educating

    Emotional Intelligence, by Daniel Goleman discusses daily life and how understanding ours and others' emotions is more important than IQ, and more often leads to success and happiness.
    In general, Emotional Intelligence was a very insightful book, which still inspires me to stop throughout the day to recognize the emotion I am feeling, and the reason for that emotion. If it is a negative emotion I can pinpoint the reason and more quickly "bounce back" to a better mood, rather than lingering on that negative mood without even acknowledging or knowing why.
    However, like many non-fiction books, the actually useful bits were often few and far between, pieced between sections that had already been rehashed in another section of the book, and with too many stories that didn't always apply; there were almost too many details and not enough big-picture ideas and analysis.
    I recommend it! It's a long read, and you may get bored or lost after a while, but it really is helpful, especially if you don't understand yours or others' emotions, and can possibly lead you to finding happiness and contentment in life.

    Goleman is still the Go-to Guy

    While perhaps not as functional as his ground-breaking book, Emotional Intelligence, this book still adds value to anyone looking to improve their E.Q. Goleman is still the go-to guy on this topic. As one who teaches classes and seminars on this subject, I believe it's well worth checking out all of Goleman's material. You'll find several useful gems along the way.
