Publisher's Summary

Most people only ever rely on their conventional intelligence (IQ) to get them through life, or worse, believe it to be the best indicator for success.

For years this was thought to be the case, that IQ was the most accurate predictor of a person's potential, whether it's getting a leg up in your career or simply building better relationships in business/family life. However that is no longer the case. It's now commonly known that Emotional Intelligence (EQ) has the biggest impact here. But most people aren't equipped with the internal and external emotional assessment tools to really get ahead.

Katherine Chambers is an ex-Stanford psychologist who specializes in all forms neuroscientific and psychotherapy subjects. However it wasn't until she left college life and entered the 'real world' that she started to understand these theoretical topics in a practical sense. Over the past 15 years she has built a multi-six figure consulting business and a family of her own. But there is one element she attributes a large part of this success to: developing high EQ.

In this insightful and functional book, Chambers gives listeners a firsthand look into the scientific subjects she studied within academia as well as a practical real life guide on how to:

  • Understand Daniel Goleman's framework for EQ
  • Know why you react the way you do - living out our limbic legacy
  • Take stock of your internal emotional state
  • Learn to differentiate between the "feeler" and the "thinker" within you
  • Develop behavioral strategies for high external EQ - for relationships and social settings
  • Specific techniques for building situational empathy and rapport
  • The power of being nonjudgmental towards yourself and others
  • And much more

    Hard to follow

    I found this book hard to follow. With the erratic tonal changes of the narrator and no examples of points the book was trying to make of EQ.

    Why EQ Beats IQ in Life

    Emotional intelligence is as important as Intellectual Intelligence. It is imperative in all relationships much more in the workplace where success depends on teamwork and teamwork will never be achieved without relationships revolving around emotions. It should be looked into and inculcated in the learning and education of all people as this brings forth a direct effect in the progress of the individual and the community he is in.
    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

    Emotional intelligence is the ability to identify and manage your own emotions and the emotions of others. This book is generally said to include three skills. First is the emotional awareness, including the ability to identify your own emotions and those of others. The ability to harness emotions and apply them to tasks like thinking and problems solving, The ability to manage emotions, including the ability to regulate your own emotions, and the ability to cheer up or calm down another person.We all have the task of knowing ourselves as deeply as we can, and then manifesting that self as fully as possible in the world. So this book is a must have.
