An easy to read book for overview on emotional Intelligence?


I would be very grateful

  1. EQ
    You could try “Executive EQ” by Robert Cooper & Ayman Sawaf or “Emotional Intelligence” by Daniel Goleman. The latter is a good overview but probably harder work to tease out the underlying concepts

  2. Achieving Emotional Literacy by Claude Steiner
    Achieving Emotional Literacy by Claude Steiner helped me to really make sense of what Emotional Intelligence is in practice. Dan Golemans book I found to be too stodgy for me although the chapter on the biological roots of emotion is interesting.

  3. Intelligent about emotions, behaviour and politics at work
    ‘Reading the mind of the organization’, by Annamaria Garden, Gower (2000) is a very creative account of using Will Schutz (FIRO B) model of human behaviour to read and enact emotional intelligence at work. Her application of Gestalt is also apparent. Like Claude Steiner’s book, it relies more on personal experience of the acutely observant, analytical and shrewd writer than on the more research-based accounts of Goleman, etc. This book may change your life!

  4. EI Reading
    Dear Mark
    There is now a plethora of good informative literature on emotional intelligence. If you’d like a list do please call me – there is far more than Goleman et al. Ryback, Weisinger, Ralston and more…

    Alternatively attend a one day overview: next one scheduled in Crawley for Nov 6th. Learn your EI profile, more about EI and begin to develop some skills.

    For info on EI visit our site
    e-mail me
    or call 01844 238775

    best regards and happy journey
