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

      "Effective Book!!!Excellent Grab!!!"
      What was one of the most memorable moments of Emotional Intelligence?

      I really enjoyed hearing about how charter schools and public school systems can practically education practices that enhance emotional intelligence.


      What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

      This book was fairly interesting but rather useless... for example, it should tell you practical ways to improve your emotional intelligence. The main message of this book is "emotional intelligence is important", that's it


      Any additional comments?

      This has some interesting information that is discussed about today's society and how people handle situations. I found this information very useful and informative.

      "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!!!

      "Thankful for this article"
      What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

      With all the focus and media attention on emotional intelligence, it is important to learn the facts about this theory. With its focus on the people side of management and leadership, EI skills are in high demand in many workplaces. Very good article and has cleared some of the doubts related to EI. Thanks for your feedback on the article.
