Author Daniel Goleman applies the rules of "emotional intelligence" to the workplace. Being intelligent counts in the world of business, but the interpersonal smarts referred to as "emotional competencies" count even more. Goleman, who wrote the seminal book Emotional Intelligence, underscores his conclusion with numerous studies and anecdotes, showing that those who have "people skills" are likelier to succeed. Skills that help teams collaborate are increasingly important as coalition building emerges as the model for getting things done. Goleman includes thorough guidelines for implementing effective "EQ" training programs. Companies that train managers in "emotional competencies" reap concrete business benefits: increased sales, more seamless teamwork, and constant improvement based on analysis and feedback. getAbstract highly recommends this well-written book on how understanding feelings adds to your bottom line.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why "emotional intelligence" is crucial to leaders, teams and organizations; and
- How to improve your company's "EQ" and your own.

7 years agoThe observations in getAbstract are totally on target. I have worked in the corporate world (public and private sectors) for over thirty years. Most of the positions I have held have been in fortune 400 companies (or better) at a senior executive level.
Pepperdine University turned me on to the work in September 2011. Once it arrived I read it from cover to cover without stopping. I found the case studies and related leadership dilemmas relevant to the semiotic domains of U.S. corporations and our government in modern times.
