A good audio book to listen

An interesting audio book to briefly learn about Emotional Intelligence. It also helps a listener, who bothers to ruminate, to understand what makes him/her the person today and why he/she has that particular temperament. This audio book should be particularly helpful for people to educate their kids. However, I would have rated this audio book a five star should the author not having spent this much efforts explaining all the details about related research and cases.

Good audio book for anybody

It could have said what it needed to say in less words but that's the only down side to it. Basically, I liked this good audio book because it describes the attributes and benefits of having people skills.

Insightful

Excellent audio book easy to listen, and understand. Some brain images needed to see interconnections between amygdala, hippocampus, neocortex but that's all. Emotions can drive your life more than what you think. And being smart is not all. This audio book shows how can emotion can be intelligence, that if your are not aware of them, even though your high IQ, your life could end up on misery.

Supper information

Excellent information. It would be hard to implement all the advice in this book and perform all the exercises though. These are just a few examples of the different options you will need to learn to decipher to become a skilled non—verbal communication specialist. This book is great

If you want to achieve real opportunities Listen

all managers and supervisors were required to attend a week long work shop. Management felt that the information was so good that they wanted to share with everyone in the department so they gave a one day class to all department employees. In this work shop, they touch on Emotional Intelligence.

I have been mulling over these concepts forever..

This audio book lays a strong foundation for the argument of the importance of emotional intelligence. In fact, my teenage daughter has started to listen the audio book and I'm sure it will help her to get light years ahead of others in her same age simply because these qualities are not emphasized in school as much as rational/logical intelligence and tests. Also, the audio book is a great way to measure your level of emotional development and find areas where you need to improve.

A great resource for developing the emotional intelligence necessary for leadership and even basic interaction skills. I learned a great deal and look forward to re-testing myself next year as I apply these skills.

I have found so many helpful tips and tricks!

I prefer for all. I'm impressed with this EI book. It will help you understand yourself and everyone around you, and why you and they behave the way you/they do. It's fantastic and explains not only the scientific background, information about the brain, but then, how that translates into thinking and behaviors.
