Publisher's Summary

If there was one valuable skill set that you could own and would guarantee your success as a leader, what would it be?

Is emotional intelligence the first thing that springs to mind?

Most probably, it’s not. Yet, it is going to be a skill that you need the most.

Have you ever asked yourself why some people are more successful than others?

What is it that makes them leaders that stand out in the crowd?

Their work ethic and personality could be contributing factors, but that is only one part of the story. The rest of the story is one that only emotional intelligence can tell.

We are emotional. Sometimes, we respond based on those emotions. We even make decisions based on those emotions.

Whether it turns out to be a good thing or not depends entirely on the way we learn how to control these emotions.

Emotions are powerful. Every choice, every decision, and every step that you make in life is guided by your emotions.

They have the ability to consume you completely and take over your every movement and thought. They can cause you to react impulsively in ways that you might not otherwise do, and they are very hard to control unless you have the necessary emotional intelligence skills to reign them in.

This is not a subject you’re going to find taught in school. Yet, it is one of the most important lessons that a person can learn, especially if they aspire to become great leaders.

This is the one skill that will allow you to navigate through life effectively - not just at work alone. It is this exact trait that you need to develop if you want to find yourself in a leadership position one day.

Are you already a leader? Then, EQ skills are going to give you that nudge from good to great.

Emotional Intelligence for Leadership takes an in-depth approach at what you need to do to improve your skills to succeed in business, as well as how to use Emotional Intelligence (EQ/EI) skills to your advantage.

Being a great leader is not just about learning how to manage people.

It’s about using social skills, self-awareness, and charisma to form meaningful relationships with the people under your leadership.

It is through EQ that you’re able to influence your team in the right way that reaps the biggest benefit.

EQ makes a big difference in the level of success that you achieve because it trains you to focus on what matters.

It teaches you to remain calm, focused, and in control in the moments when you need it most.

More importantly, it teaches you to handle the negative emotions and challenging situations that could threaten to disrupt your success.

A leader cannot become a great leader without emotional intelligence - and that’s the truth.
Building and mastering emotional intelligence for better Leadership is a skill you will gain over time - and that time starts right now!

A great tool for anyone.

Very informative, intriguing and easy to follow.
First time through I took in alot of the information, and was able to practice a little of it and plan to re-read many more times to absorb everything this has to offer.

Useful guidebook

I really liked it. Once you listen it you are going to refer it again and again to make improvements. I am going to refer to strategies at least multiple times to incorporate them in my day to day behavior. The author followed a very simple and uncomplicated yet very effective and powerful approach to improve the EQ

This book taught me to develop my own leadership..

If you already lead this way, and work for people who don't, you may find yourself at odds with them. I was hoping to find some insight on how to be a primal (caring) leader and survive in a 'management by intimidation' world. I don't want to swim with sharks or lead like Gingus Khan, I want to be a servant leader like Jesus Christ but prosper in business. one of the most greatfully listen book .

One of the great book

An essential book on leadership. Seriously, there are a lot of leadership books out there, why should you listens another one? Daniel Goleman does a great job of going to the scientific aspects that determine how different leadership styles affect people. He explains the science in an easy to understand method, and helps you understand how to create the same results, in the people you lead. The book explains why emotional intelligence is critical in leading, and why your method of leading may not have had the intended effects you had hoped for. If you want to become a better leader, you need to listens this book.

This book saved my life.

1. Ask others for feedback about how you handle your emotions and listen carefully to what they say . 2. Weekly or bi-weekly take stock of your life and listens down situations that you didn't deal with well and then list which quality that you wanted to honor but didn't. For example:
Honesty is the quality and then write down a situation that I didn't handle well where I wasn't completely honest. The next time a situation like this comes up, I might deal with it differently because I will remember the list.

We need to listens more books like this in ......

I really wish I had listens this book in high school and better yet had a course in it. It would have saved me a lot of grief. As a society, we need to teach children how to deal with emotions. I wish I had not taken it out of the library because the code in the back only works for one person. So, I was not able to take the EQ (Emotional Intelligence)test. I may need to buy the book.

Develop your Core

I felt like that for a long time. With the help of some friends and acquaintances telling me I was low in EMOTIONAL intelligence, I began looking into self help for growing my mysterious EQ.
