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 it is fixed and unchangeable. The real key to personal and professional growth, and happiness, is your emotional quotient, which you can nurture and develop.
The EQ Edge, by Steven J. Stein and Howard E. Book, shows 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 book features case studies and fascinating - and surprising - insights into EQ and the workplace. As an HR or line manager, this book will help you determine which personnel are the right fit for job opportunities and who among your staff will be the most promising leaders and drivers of your business. And because CEOs to front-line workers also 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.
