You have probably heard, and perhaps even used to hear, that people with a higher intelligence quotient - the famous IQ - are the ones that do best in their professional careers. What you might not know is that there is another kind of intelligence, emotional, that seems to be the secret behind many successful people.
If this type of intelligence is emotional, you already imagine it's not the kind of thing you learn in school or depends on mathematical equations or bizarre formulas. Basically, emotional intelligence is the ability a person has to realize, understand, evaluate, and manage their emotions - and also the emotions of others - in a positive way.
Managing emotions is not exactly the easiest task in the world. It takes self-criticism, reflection, meditation, and empathy - just to name a few factors. It all affects the way we behave, make decisions, and interact socially. In this book, let's talk about emotional intelligence and how it influences in all areas of your life.
