I had an idea that emotional intelligence was an important concept before reading the book, but I hadn’t expected to gain so much from it personally. First of all, this is more than a book of concepts; it is a personalized manual for identifying and improving your own emotional intelligence (EQ).
What is emotional intelligence? Some people mistakenly think that EQ is a part of your personality or intellect (IQ). But EQ coined as the “other kind of smart” and is the #1 predictor of personal and professional success. It’s a powerful tool for anyone. EQ addresses four key areas: self-awareness; self-management; social awareness and relationship management. The authors show how your EQ impacts things like your tolerance for change, how you manage stress, even how much money you make!
Beyond learning what EQ is, Emotional Intelligence 2.0 delivers a step-by-step program for increasing your own EQ enabling you to achieve your fullest potential. The book comes with an EQ test (a passcode used to access the online test). Taking the test was a real eye opener for me, particularly where I scored lower than expected. Along with that initial dose of reality, I found the feedback report’s analysis of the areas I need to work on startlingly accurate. I also loved how the test tells you which of the book’s strategies you should follow (based on your test results) to increase your emotional intelligence the most.
I don’t see how anyone could begin to improve his or her emotional intelligence until they have discovered the areas they need to work on. So get the book, take the 10 minute test and follow the action plan and you are on your way to a higher EQ.
By the way, I liked this topic so much I’m presenting a free luncheon event to help others learn about and improve their own EQ’s. Get a copy of the book, take the test and join us. Get your own copy at Amazon.com
