His engaging style really connects with colleagues and students and now he is sharing his knowledge so others can use it to advance their careers.To be an effective educator you need to be intelligent, but it has been shown that emotional intelligence-the ability to understand emotional and social situations, is a far more correlated with success. In this book, educators will find a treasure trove of practical and useful tools to increase their emotional intelligence in educational settings. You are certain to come away with a greater understanding of how to function successfully in your professional world.  Well done!
