Copyright © 2013 AMACOM, a division of American Management Association
To become a more effective project manager, enhance your self-awareness and relationship-building skills.
Coach Anthony Mersino teaches the basics of emotional intelligence as it applies to project managers, in particular, and then guides you through its practical use. He shows you how to understand and control your emotions and how to relate to the feelings of those around you. Mersino explains why PMs need self-awareness and self-management. He shows that emotional intelligence can lead to greater job satisfaction and better collegial relationships, which, in turn, will make you a more effective manager. His relevant, articulate presentation provides a basic foundation, so it’s not really directed to readers who are already conversant with formal management studies or organizational psychology. Yet, it’s a smart, thorough introduction and a good refresher course on core concepts, so getAbstract recommends it not just to project directors, but to all managers.
In this summary, you will learn
- What methods you can use to understand and control your emotions,
- What strategies will help you identify and relate to others’ emotions, and
- How emotional intelligence can help you become a better project manager.
