The Skill Kit for Leaders
The book expands on the nature of Emotional Intelligence, which involves better self-awareness of people's emotions so that they can optimize their relationship strategies. It is when people are under stress that they revert to behaviors that protect their emotional well-being, and while these reactions can serve them well – as adults they frequently no longer do so. With Emotional Intelligence they are able to take back control of their emotions and thinking – rather than be their prisoner – and in this way, people will improve their relationships.
People with well-developed Emotional Intelligence find relationships easy, enjoyable, and rewarding. They are more connected to others and are flexible, resilient, and tolerant of differences. Emotionally intelligent individuals are optimistic, trusting, and good listeners.
Empowering and timely, this book adds value to everyone's lives, allowing them to act in ways that matter – even when no one is looking – because this defines who they are.
This book is available online and can be purchased at
