Emotional Intelligence Pocketbook


Category: Bookshelf
Code: 7202

A pocketful of tips, tools and techniques to improve your emotional awareness and your ability to manage feelings – yours and other people

A survey of managers in a leading UK supermarket chain revealed that those high on EI (emotional intelligence) experienced less stress, enjoyed better health, demonstrated higher levels of morale and performance, and reported a better quality of life. US research involving partners of a multi-national consulting firm showed that those people with higher EI competencies secured $1.2 million more profit.

In the Emotional Intelligence Pocketbook author Margaret Chapman, a coaching psychologist and coach-supervisor, demystifies a complex subject that hitherto has only been covered by academic, heavyweight literature. The 112-page book takes readers through each of the five steps to attaining EI and describes how organisations can become emotionally intelligent.
