Goldman Sachs International For content 4 starsFor lack of the Quiz 2 starsOverall Rating 2 starsAn easy to read look at evaluating yourself and how you react read others This is a good skill finding book or refresher at the tenets of managing oneself and a team Learning to control and understand our emotions and how they move us into ineffective actions is something that should probably be taught at some point in our schooling The skills here would be helpful at least, the concept of the need to skill build would be of assistance Areas concentrated on in this book Self Awareness Self Management Social Awareness Relationship ManagementI got some helpful tips from this book and some refreshers on topics I hadn t thought about in a while However, the access code to the on line EQ Quiz can only be used once My book was a library copy so no access for me It would be good for all who read this book to get a baseline of where they are emotionally sitting I m taking away 2 stars for that I find it an important part of the whole. This is a textbook example of how not to write a scientific book Admittedly, the book never claims to be scientific but it supposedly concerns emotional intelligence a psychological concept and its effects on our daily lives Yet there s not a single experiment mentioned.My favorite parts were Here s how it works everything you see, smell, hear, taste and touch travels through your body in the form of electric signals These signals pass from cell to cell until they reach their ultimate destination, your brain They enter your brain at the base near the spinal cord, but must travel to your frontal lobe behind your forehead before reaching the place where rational, logical thinking takes place The trouble is, they pass through your limbic system along the way the place where emotions are produced This journey ensures you experience things emotionally before your reason can kick into gear People with the highest levels of intelligence IQ outperform those with average IQs just 20 percent of the time, while people with average IQs outperform those with high IQs 70 percent of the time Great but are these results based on an actual experiment Only 36 percent of the people we tested are able to accurately identify their emotions as they happen This means that two thirds of us are typically controlled by our emotions and are not yet skilled at spotting them and using them to our benefit You sound very confident that your sample is representative I, however, am not How many people did you test What kind of methods did you use There is no known connection between IQ and EQ you simply can t predict EQ based on how smart someone is Cognitive intelligence, or IQ, is not flexible Your IQ, short of a traumatic event such as a brain injury, is fixed from birth You don t get smarter by learning new facts or information Intelligence is your ability to learn, and it s the same at age 15 as it is at age 50 EQ, on the other hand, is a flexible skill that can be learned Experiments proving these statements We ve tested EQ alongside 33 other important workplace behaviors and found that it subsumes the majority of them, including time management, decision making, and communication Your EQ is the foundation for a host of critical skills it impacts most everything you say and do each day EQ is so critical to success that it accounts for 58 percent of performance in all types of jobs It s the single biggest predictor of performance in the workplace and the strongest driver of leadership and personal excellence Of all the people we ve studied at work, we have found that 90 percent of high performers are also high in EQ On the flip side, just 20 percent of low performers are high in EQ You can be a high performer without EQ, but the chances are slim Naturally, people with high EQs make money an average of 29,000 per year than people with low EQs The link between EQ and earnings is so direct that every point increase in EQ adds 1,300 to an annual salary These findings hold true for people in all industries, at all levels, in every region of the world We haven t yet been able to find a job in which performance and pay aren t tied closely to EQ I m reluctant to place this on the non fiction shelf.Two stars. This is the first applied emotional intelligence book that I am reading It has its pros clarity and simplicity of content and some cons excessive self promotion Cons1 Open the book and you are hit with several pages of endorsements from well known people Hard to miss the Dalai Lama s one as it is the first Further on, particularly towards the end of the book, it s evident that the authors could have practised some self restraint in mentioning their company the name dropping is excessive When reading these sort of books, I prefer to judge it on its merits so I found this style of marketing and self promotion to be quite off putting and unnecessary 2 I wish that the test and scores were freely available i.e to friends and acquaintances who are sceptics or curious about EQ Given that people have to purchase the book to access the strategies, a better approach might have been to offer the test for free, along with a sample strategy for each area It also assumes that people have easy access to the internet which they may not 3 Some readers may not click with the casual conversational tone of the book There is a literal peppering of it s , which make me cringe Pros1 I like that their explanations are not riddled with jargon or as dense compared to the original Emotional Intelligence information is easily digestible and likely to stick with me I can see how the content might be criticised as over simplistic but I m treating it as food for thought that you can take in and practice at my own pace Similarly, strategies are framed in such a way that I can attempt to try them out amidst a busy schedule A quick skim of the strategies revealed quite a few that I hadn t come across before in previous reading on cognitive restructuring 2 I like the logical structure of the book and the case examples are a great inclusion I identified with characteristics found in those who had high and low EQ 3 Physically, the book is a good sized hardback that s light enough to tote around I haven t finished the book and will update this post when I have Despite its flaws, I think it will be a useful introduction to developing improved EQ I have family members who would really benefit from reading it P I really wish I had read 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.I loved it all, but I have picked out my favorite parts of each section Self Awareness Strategies 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 write 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.Self Management Strategies 1 To prepare for change, make a list of things in my life that could possibly change and write down ideas for how I could deal with that I really enjoyed doing this and it really has been helpful.Social Awareness Strategies 1 Become a great observer Learn how to sense the mood of a room and check to see if your observations are correct.1 Listen Listen Listen Don t interrupt.Relationship Management Strategies 1 Use these phrases I am sorry Please Thank You Fabulous book I highly recommend it.
