REVISED AND UPDAT ED WITH NEW RESEARCH INTO EQ AND PERSONAL
AND CAREER SUCCESS
What is the formula for success at your job? As a spouse? A
parent? A Little League baseball coach or behind the bench of a
minor hockey team?
What does it take to get ahead? To separate yourself from the
competition? To lead a less stressful and happier existence? To be
fulfilled in personal and professional pursuits?
What is the most important dynamic of your makeup? Is it your A)
intelligence quotient? or B) emotional quotient?
If you picked "A", you are partly correct. Your intelligence
quotient can be a predictor of things such as academic achievement.
But your IQ is fixed and unchangeable. The real key to personal and
professional growth is your emotional intelligence quotient, which
you can nurture and develop by learning more about EQ from the
international bestseller The EQ Edge.
Authors Steven J. Stein and Howard E. Book show you how the
dynamic of emotional intelligence works. By understanding EQ, you
can build more meaningful relationships, boost your confidence and
optimism, and respond to challenges with enthusiasm-all of which
are essential ingredients of success.
The EQ Edge offers fascinating-and sometimes
surprising-insights into what it takes to be a top law-enforcement
officer, lawyer, school principal, student, doctor, dentist or CEO.
You will learn what the top EQ factors are across many different
kinds of jobs, from business managers and customer service
representatives to HR professionals and public servants.
The EQ Edge will help you determine which personnel are
the right fit for job opportunities and who among your staff are
the most promising leaders and drivers of your business. And
because all of us have other roles-parent, spouse, caregiver to
aging parents, neighbor, friend-The EQ Edge also describes
how everyone can be more successful in these relationships.
"Finally, a practical and usable guide to what emotional
intelligence is all about. This book peels the onion on what EQ
really is and teaches the reader to assess their own EQ and how to
increase it. This is the holy grail for career
success."-Michael Feiner, Professor, Columbia
