Summary

Have you ever thought about the power that having a simple awareness of yourself and your surroundings can have? Are you sometimes a negative person or rather technical and logical and feel that your lack of emotional competence could potentially hurt your relationships or career? Or do you simply want to understand yourself and the people around you much better?

If you answered yes to at least one of the questions above, this guide was directly written for you. We all know about the major importance of intelligence and the IQ on your whole life, your career, and your success in general. 

In 1995, Daniel Goleman published the now well-known best seller and revolutionary concept of “Emotional Intelligence” and why it can be absolutely crucial in your life to determine success in relationships, work, and even our physical well-being. 

Since then, science has made tremendous progress to expand the effect the EQ has on the critical parts in life. 

For example, in “It pays to have an eye for emotions: Emotion recognition ability indirectly predicts annual income”, Tassilo Momm et al found that the better people are at recognizing emotions, the better they handle the politics in organizations and the interpersonal aspects of work life, and thus the more they earn in their jobs. 

The findings imply that emotional abilities enable people to be more successful at work. 

But knowing what EQ is and knowing how to use it to improve your life are two very different things. That is exactly why we wanted to deliver a practical step-by-step program for increasing your EQ via proven, scientific practices you can implement in your everyday life. 

In Practical Emotional Intelligence you’ll discover:

  • The five little-known practices to instantly improve your ability to understand others and yourself better day by day! (even if you feel completely hopeless right now)
  • The real difference between people with high and low EQ
  • Why these three existing EI-models can make you suddenly aware of what you are potentially lacking what high EQ people naturally get
  • The simple but uncommon strategies to transform the knowledge about emotional intelligence into straight actions
  • The biggest myth busted: how your thoughts and habits really influence your emotions and your emotional health (and what you should change to experience dramatic results!)
  • What the best tactics are to reduce stress in your relationships and confidently defuse heated situations
  • The absolute best five ways to put everything together and create your long-lasting, personalized EQ-training plan (we guide you from a-z for sustainable success long after you have finished this guide) and much, much more!

It didn't send absolute fireworks at the time but looking back I took a ton of useful notes for my mental health work. A solid and useful work.

Emotional intelligence

I love this book. I've leant it out twice and it wasn't returned ( I suspect they needed it more than me at the time). It's the best book to re read and go over and really absorb the material.

Hard to get through but worth it

This is a very insightful book however it reads like a textbook. I found I had to force myself to keep going but was glad I did.

Slightly dull, but good info

Very good information, but at times hard to follow and a bit dull. Needed to 're-listen' to certain parts in order to absorb all of the information.

Extremely insightful

There's being 'mindful' and then there's knowing your emotions and working on managing them better. Excellent book if you're serious about increasing your EQ knowledge.
