EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE: THE #1 PREDICTOR OF PROFESSIONAL SUCCESS AND PERSONAL EXCELLENCE

In today's fast-paced world of competitive workplaces and chaotic personal lives, each of us is searching for effective tools that can make our schedules, behaviors, and relationships more manageable. The Emotional Intelligence Quickbook shows us how understanding and utilizing emotional intelligence can be the key to exceeding our goals and achieving our fullest potential.

Authors Bradberry and Greaves use their years of experience as emotional intelligence researchers, consultants, and speakers to revitalize our current understanding of emotional intelligence. They have combined their latest research on emotional intelligence with a quick, easy-to-use format and cut-to-the-chase information to demonstrate how this other kind of "smart" helps us to decrease our stress, increase our productivity, understand our emotions as they happen, and interact positively with those around us.

The Emotional Intelligence Quickbook brings this concept to light in a way that has not been done before — making EQ practical and easy to apply in every aspect of our daily lives. The Quickbook will help you to:

-Engage the four unique areas of EQ: self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, and relationship management
-Increase your EQ through the use of these skill-building techniques
-Apply your EQ at work to develop leadership skills and improve teamwork, making you a better manager and a more desirable employee
-Practice your EQ outside the office environment to benefit your relationships with loved ones, making you a better partner and parent

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Research shows convincingly that EQ is more important than IQ in almost every role and many times more important in leadership roles. This finding is accentuated as we move from the control philosophy of the industrial age to an empowering release philosophy of the knowledge worker age. Self-awareness, self-motivation, and regulation are foundational to empathy and social skills. This book gives abundant, practical findings and insights with emphasis on how to develop EQ."
— Dr. Stephen R. Covey, author, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and The 8th Habit: From Effectiveness to Greatness

"All sentient beings possess awareness, but among them human beings possess great intelligence. Subject to a constant stream of positive and negative thoughts and emotions, what distinguishes us as human beings is that we are capable of positive change. The Emotional Intelligence Quickbook succinctly explains how to deal with emotions creatively and employ our intelligence in a beneficial way."
— the Dalai Lama

"If you're wondering why your career is stalled or plateaued — or if you simply want to get on the fast track to the next level — this book is a must-read...."

Library Journal
Industrial-organizational psychologists Bradberry and Greaves are cofounders of TalentSmart, a management training and consulting firm in San Diego. This book, originally self-published in 2003, provides a quick outline of the major tenets of their emotional intelligence training philosophy. With the purchase of the book, readers are given a unique access code to a 28-question online "Emotional Intelligence Appraisal" to evaluate their own emotional intelligence level. The authors' engaging second-person style reads like a dynamic 0keynote presentation that offers a brief introduction to the field, an overview of the four basic skills that define emotional intelligence (self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, and relationship management), and suggestions on how to apply those skills at work and at home. This is a good motivational tool to raise reader interest in the field of emotional intelligence; however, one would need to look elsewhere for an in-depth treatment. Suitable for self-help and business collections in public libraries.-Crystal Renfro, Georgia Inst. of Technology Lib., Atlanta Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
