Put Emotional Intelligence to Work
IN THIS SUMMARY
The idea that emotions are just as important as intellect in determining success has gained wide acceptance in recent years. Often our success or failure may not be governed by external events, but by how we experience and make sense of those events. If left unmanaged, disruptive emotions like anger and resentment can derail progress toward a particular goal, or even a career.
The good news is that most researchers believe it is possible to grow and develop the skills inherent in emotional intelligence. The authors of Put Emotional Intelligence to Work lay out the science behind this field, and focus on bringing the theory to life with strategies and practical exercises for managing emotions in life and in the workplace.
