Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Research has told us that to be successful in our personal and professional lives we need emotional intelligence (EQ). In this book, Martyn Newman shows us how to get it and use it to achieve extraordinary results. Based on ground-breaking psychological research with some of the world’s most successful young business leaders, Newman identifies the seven dynamic emotions that set these exceptional men and women apart. He then uncovers the psychological building blocks that drive outstanding performance and provides the clearest blueprint yet for systematically building your EQ and leadership skills.

Packed with psychological insights and practical strategies, Emotional CapitalistsThe New Leaders is a handbook for a new generation of leaders — emotional capitalists.

Martyn Newman, PhD, DPsych, is a consulting psychologist with an international reputation as an expert in emotional intelligence and leadership. As well as holding senior positions at leading universities in Europe and Australia, he has had many years of experience working in leadership development and management consulting across Europe and Asia.

This book is an exciting, brand-new guide for developing leadership in both personal and professional life. Martyn’s book distills the most important elements of effective leadershipand provides practical explanations and strategies for seeing immediate results. I highly recommend it.

Steve Arthurson — Director, Capability Development, Foster’s Group

If Daniel Goleman is the covered-wagon pioneer in emotional intelligence, then Newman is a builder of log cabins. This book is long overdue in the field of emotional intelligence.The book has remarkable psychological depth but is very readable, intensely practical and full of interesting stories and research that bring the skills to life.

2006 Adventure Associates, Inc.

This book has proven to me that no matter how technically trained you are, and how well you know your business, you need to embrace emotional capitalism to be the leader you aspire to be.

Greg Healy — CFO, Quiksilver Asia Pacific

For years, Martyn Newman has been an immense hidden resource of intelligence and clarity. He has been a powerful influence in shaping our understanding of organisational consultation, leadership and emotional intelligence. These pages are a generous enrichment of the field and the reader will discover a new force for generating improved organisational performance.

Dr James Urquhart — Head, Graduate Business School, Dublin Institute of Technology

Martyn Newman’s book is an easy read that will be particularly valuable to time-poor senior executives. He takes a complex, emergent and fashionable subject and makes it accessible.

Clarence Da Gama Pinto — Leadership Program Director, Melbourne Business School

‘Making it Happen’ the aim of any CEO or HRD or, for that matter any leader. Martyn Newman’s Emotional Capitalists is one of those insightful books that steps away from the theory of leadership to an easy to read, practical book that challenges one’s self perception of one’s own emotional intelligence as well as delivering relevant, simple tools to improve oneself. Emotional Capitalists is therefore key reading for anyone wanting to make it happen!

Luke Mulkearns People Capability Director, Business Services, Cadbury PLC

The first practical book for leaders which tells you HOW to get emotional intelligence. I am convinced emotional wealth can create a competitive advantage. Martyn Newman’s book is a simple read and a must for all leaders.

Dimitra Manis Global Senior Vice President, AXA Group, Paris

Every once in a while a book appears that isn't just informative, it's inspiring, fun to read and life-changing. The Emotional Capitalists  — The New Leaders is one of those rare books. As with all new ground-breaking books, it must be read and personally connected to your own experience to be fully appreciated and understood. I recommend: Buy it, read it, learn from it, and apply it to your daily practise!

Daniela Sfameni Global Head Human Resource Development for Allianz Global Investors Group

Format: Paperback
This book is long overdue in the field of emotional intelligence. Since Goleman made us aware of the importance of EI we've known that we need it. At last a book that tells us how to actually build it. The book is built on a rigorous platform of research with some of the world's outstanding young leaders. The author identifies the unique emotional profile of these entrpreneurs and sets the benchmarks to aim for. Each chapter then systematically describes the psychological building blocks that comprise these essential skills. The book has remarkable psychological depth but is very readable, intensely practical and full of interesting stories and research that bring the skills to life. This really is the 'how to' manual of applying emotional intelligence to leadership. This is a 'must read' for everyone who wants to lead effectively in the 21st Century. It's a fabulous resource for leaders.

This is one of the best books that I have read in the past few years. It is easy to read and understand and you will be asking yourself questions about life. It will also give you hints and ideas to change the way we do things and see life, I have recommended the book to my friends and collegues in work.

I would recommend that people read this book with an open mind and see if you can change that the way you live.

Well done Martyn this was the first book I have read by you but not the last.

By D. Keane on January 17, 2014
Format: Paperback
Newman's book should be required reading for everyone who leads, or aspires to lead, others. But you certainly do not have to be a leader to benefit from Newman's wisdom. I would advise anyone who is interested in making more of their life to read this book. It is packed with interesting and informative real life examples that show the reader how incredibly important emotional intelligence is but, unfortunately, how often we are found wanting when we need to demonstrate it.

I am an Organisational Psychologist and have read many books on both EQ and Leadership but this is one of the only ones I recommend to everyone I meet whether through business or otherwise. You will find yourself referring back to the book long after you have finished reading it as it is full of really practical and useful strategies for developing your EQ.

Read this book, you'll be a happier and wiser person for it
