Publisher's Summary

We have all had experiences with people that prove that those with the highest IQs are not always the most successful. What could these very smart people be missing? Chances are it's emotional intelligence (EQ) - the ability to perceive, understand, and manage emotions in ourselves and others.

Sounds very powerful, doesn't it? Could we really manage our own emotions, as opposed to having our emotions run the show? Could we really effect change in the emotions of our coworkers or family members? The answer to all these questions is a resounding "yes".

Whether or not you understand your emotions and their resultant behaviors, they leave their impacts like footprints - for better or worse - all over the situations and people with whom you interact throughout your life, as well as affecting your cognition, decision-making, and physical body. And while some aspects of your EQ are inherited, the vast majority of EQ skills can be acquired at any age. In Boosting Your Emotional Intelligence, Dr. Jason Satterfield shares how to identify and regulate your own emotions, how to manage emotions in others, a step-by-step process for building your own interactive Skills Tracker to improve your personal EQ, and where to find numerous resources to improve your EQ as an ongoing, unlimited learning experience.

With the tools and skills you gather from this exciting course, you will be able to improve your emotional intelligence now and throughout your life - using your emotions as you want, to help you reach your own personal goals

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

Helpful for everyone

Many people focus on developing their intellectual strengths, especially readers who are avid Audible listeners. This course is very points out our need to delve more into our emotions, what are the triggers, how to process your emotions. I think this is a critical topic, well presented by someone very easy to listen to. As a practicing physician, this has helped me help other people inside and outside my practice, and has helped me as a person.
This is a contemporary lecture, recently produced. On the critical side, I would recommend not referring to another course. I bought the prior course, before this one, just listened to this one first. Overall, great subject, easy to listen to, and I promise you will not "feel" the same after this course.

Nice lectures on EQ

I've taken wellness classes in college, this was a nice supplement to those. This course outlines methods and studies on emotional control, regulation, and influence. As a professional, I picked up some good skills that I am incorporating into my business routine.

Great Lectures

Excellent set of lectures about emotional intelligence, full of examples and real life applications. The professors cover everything from trauma, health and conflict management. Very educational and applicable to everyday life.

hard to see the videos on an audio book

i do love the book and the speech but there are a lot of video of films init and it is difficult to engage when you can actually see the videos and even hear properly the people talking in the films because the film are very old....

Neither helpful or informative

I was hoping for a book with ways to "boost my emotional intelligence". Two chapters in I think I might get a text book telling me about emotional intelligence as an academic subject. A quarter of the way thru I stopped reading. I have liked every other Great Courses book, but this one was useless

It neither gives you advice on ways to improve yourself or gives you a solid understanding of the topic. It is just the briefest suggestions (e.g. keep a journal) and the shallowest discussion (e.g. a few sentences to describe a model).

The bulk of the book is these scenes of the author talking to his "clients". His clients telling him how great his sessions are. Then throw in some dialogue from an old movie.

Mind numbing

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

No idea how to make this better

What do you think your next listen will be?

Not this subject

What didn’t you like about Professor Jason M. Satterfield’s performance?

To monotone

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Not helpful - I want real world practical help to increase EQ.

Any additional comments?

Make it more practical and less clinical

Really helpful. I was sceptical, but there was a lot of useful information. It is geared towards neurotypical people, and assumes typicality, but it is a good starting point and I took away a lot of ideas from it.
