The EQ Edge
REVISED AND UPDAT ED WITH NEW RESEARCH INTO EQ AND PERSONAL AND CAREER SUCCESS

What is the formula for success at your job? As a spouse? A parent? A Little League baseball coach or behind the bench of a minor hockey team?

What does it take to get ahead? To separate yourself from the competition? To lead a less stressful and happier existence? To be fulfilled in personal and professional pursuits?

What is the most important dynamic of your makeup? Is it your A) intelligence quotient? or B) emotional quotient?

If you picked "A", you are partly correct. Your intelligence quotient can be a predictor of things such as academic achievement. But your IQ is fixed and unchangeable. The real key to personal and professional growth is your emotional intelligence quotient, which you can nurture and develop by learning more about EQ from the international bestseller The EQ Edge.

Authors Steven J. Stein and Howard E. Book show you how the dynamic of emotional intelligence works. By understanding EQ, you can build more meaningful relationships, boost your confidence and optimism, and respond to challenges with enthusiasm-all of which are essential ingredients of success.

The EQ Edge offers fascinating-and sometimes surprising-insights into what it takes to be a top law-enforcement officer, lawyer, school principal, student, doctor, dentist or CEO. You will learn what the top EQ factors are across many different kinds of jobs, from business managers and customer service representatives to HR professionals and public servants.

The EQ Edge will help you determine which personnel are the right fit for job opportunities and who among your staff are the most promising leaders and drivers of your business. And because all of us have other roles-parent, spouse, caregiver to aging parents, neighbor, friend-The EQ Edge also describes how everyone can be more successful in these relationships.

"Finally, a practical and usable guide to what emotional intelligence is all about. This book peels the onion on what EQ really is and teaches the reader to assess their own EQ and how to increase it. This is the holy grail for career success."—Michael Feiner, Professor, Columbia Graduate School of Business and author of The Feiner Points of Leadership

Building Emotional Intelligence

What's the most important piece of your child's educational experience? If you think it's math, science, or reading, you might be overlooking an element that is fast becoming essential in today's stressful world: the capacity known as "inner resilience."


In Building Emotional Intelligence, pioneering educator Linda Lantieri joins forces with renowned psychologist Daniel Goleman to help children respond to and rebound from the challenges unique to the 21st century. How? Through a breakthrough, step-by-step guide that teaches children how to quiet their minds, calm their bodies, and manage their emotions more skillfully.


Now available to the public for the first time, here are Linda Lantieri's proven techniques for increasing self-esteem, improving concentration and awareness, and enhancing empathy and communication. This powerful curriculum is arranged according to age group and complemented by a spoken-word CD with exercises presented by Daniel Goleman.


Building Emotional Intelligence invites you and the children in your care to explore:




  • Relaxing the Body and Focusing the Mind, two fundamental techniques for thriving in our unpredictable and distraction-filled environments

  • How to foster the five basic competencies that make up emotional intelligence

  • Bringing groundedness, confidence, and curiosity to all our daily experiences

"A heightened self-awareness, better ability to manage distressing emotions, increased sensitivity to how others feel, and the capacity to manage relationships well are vital throughout life. But the foundation is laid in childhood," says Daniel Goleman in his introduction. With Building Emotional Intelligence, parents, teachers, and caregivers have the tools necessary to promote these invaluable skills in the children they raise.

Go Suck a Lemon
Many of your emotional responses, regardless of how much strength you've given them, can be brought down, deconstructed and reshaped. You will just have to learn how to give your knee-jerk response to emotional stimuli less strength - LESS OF A JERK. To do that you will have to commit to reinventing the way you think and behave. With Go Suck a Lemon, you will approach that task by accepting and then adapting to a no-nonsense style of emotional problem solving. You will learn and use a process of level-headed decision-making. You will try to become more efficient, flexible and open-minded when addressing your emotional problems. You will learn that there is always another emotional option. You will learn to make fact-based observations, something most of us are unfamiliar with doing. You will also incorporate in vivo (in life) exposure, i.e., homework, to encourage you to independently act against your learned thoughts and behaviors. In the end, you will become more informed, increasingly more capable and far more emotionally self-reliant. Instead of being your own worst enemy, you will become your own best friend - your own therapist.
 
We may be strengthened when we learn to be emotionally self-reliant, to free ourselves from emotional helplessness and our dependence on others for our emotional solutions.

It will take the force of will to do that.

Emotional Intelligence
Everyone knows that high IQ is no guarantee of success, happiness, or virtue, but until Emotional Intelligence, we could only guess why. Daniel Goleman's brilliant report from the frontiers of psychology and neuroscience offers startling new insight into our "two minds"—the rational and the emotional—and how they together shape our destiny.

Through vivid examples, Goleman delineates the five crucial skills of emotional intelligence, and shows how they determine our success in relationships, work, and even our physical well-being. What emerges is an entirely new way to talk about being smart.

The best news is that "emotional literacy" is not fixed early in life. Every parent, every teacher, every business leader, and everyone interested in a more civil society, has a stake in this compelling vision of human possibility.
