Publisher's Summary

Do you wonder why people less smart than you are making career faster than you? Do you want to learn how to manage more people with less effort? Do you want to discover how to guide people in the right direction by recognizing their emotions?

Then keep on reading....

A recent study in Career Builder shows that 71 percent of the hiring managers said that for them, an employee's emotional intelligence, also known as EQ, is more important than their IQ. And 75 percent even said they were more likely to promote a high-EQ employee.

Since it was first labeled by professor Daniel Goleman in his 1995 best seller, Emotional Intelligence, more and more evidence has been found that your EQ has a bigger influence on your success as a leader than your IQ. 

Controlling your own emotions, recognizing the emotions of others, and leading those emotions in line with the common department and company goals is an essential skill in modern-day leadership. 

And luckily, it's a skill that can be acquired without months of studying.

In Emotional Intelligence for Leadership you will discover:

  • How to recognize emotions from other people and build better relationships
  • How manage your own emotions, so you can make the decision based on logic, to align your decision-making with your goals 
  • How to use your voice to express the desired emotion to influence people and get back the positive spirit in your team 
  • Recognize emotions by looking to the nonverbal facial expression - use this in your next negotiation 
  • How to leverage positive emotions in people to increase their productivity and happiness
  • How to avoid complaining and mockery within your workforce 
  • How to deal with the biggest enemy for productivity of your team 
  • How to turn jealousy into something positive and productive
  • And much, much more

Even if you have the empathy of a robot regarding other people's feelings, the everyday examples from the office floor will give you the tools to recognize and react to those emotions as a successful leader.

Maybe you are doubting if listening to a book about emotional intelligence can help you in your busy life as a modern-day leader. That's why a big part of this audiobook is dedicated to the unique four week emotional intelligence booster program. 

This program is especially developed to raise your EQ as a leader. Besides raising your self-awareness and getting more fruitful relationships, it will also prepare your long-desired promotion.

It's time to sharpen the most essential leadership skill: emotional intelligence.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Omg

I've done a good amount of emotional intelligence work and let me tell you nothing in here is good advice. It's as far away from good as anything can get.

This is a warning to audible listeners, there are people who have jumped on audible to make money. They quickly put together books, often copying from other legitimate authors, then post a bunch of fake reviews to make their books rank. They have no business in writing about the subject or topic because they have no real world or academic experience in it, in fact they don't even have a college education. They simply copy content from authors who are doing well or write about ideas that are so simple as to be common sense!

And this is one of those books, you can tell because all of the positive reviews were by people who reviewed other similar books.

Save your money and do not buy this book and do not support opportunists cheating other authors and the review system to make $

If you are in a leadership position!

If you are in a leadership position, especially in upper management, you absolutely need to be familiar with the concepts presented in this book. Also becoming a more effective leader with high EQ directly correlates to higher salary! Not surprising, but that is something that should inspire anyone to raise their emotional intelligence. I have received a free version of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

Meh

This book includes information on emotional intelligence and if you have never been exposed to that information it might be helpful to you. It seems as though the author just renamed a generically written title of his to include "Leadership," without actually providing information on how emotional intelligence correlates with leadership. Yes, you can probably figure it out for yourself, but if you're going to do that there are many better books on the subject.

Great info

I liked a few of the principles here-good reminders to impliment. Many of the principles are obvious/appropriate for beginners; I may have also just read too many leadership development books too. I really like the authors NLP book though!

That was a very useful guidebook.

The author very clearly wrote this book. This book is a great starting point if you want to be a better employee, leader, friend, and romantic partner. You may be amazed at how low your score is in the beginning, but the online program that comes with it offers great support on your journey to be a better person. But this book makes it easier to set a baseline so you’ll be able to measure your growth. I really benefited to read this book. Thanks

This is an audio-book everyone should listen. It will help you with your work, spouse relations and parenting. My only issue was the terrible narration. The man sounds like a robot pinching its nose.

Great collection of audio-book!!

I initially needed this for the manipulation portion. I was somewhat underwhelmed with it. The empathy and anger management made up for it.
