Hughes, Patterson, and Terrell make a significant contribution to EI and more importantly, will help you make a significant contribution to your organization."

"Emotional Intelligence in Action is a valuable resource that is loaded with exercises and experiential learning scenarios (‘workouts’) that all of us can profit from as we seek to understand more clearly what moves us and motivates us. More accurate, realistic information, in turn, allows us to reason with emotions and emotional signals. The ability to do that serves as a valuable foundation for creating real change."
--Wayne Cascio, US Bank Term Professor of Management, University of Colorado
"In all the training and developmental work I have done lately, I have seen repeatedly the importance of interactive experiences. To have tools to help people learn by experience is so valuable and clearly, the best way to promote learning. I am excited to have this excellent handbook to help individuals and teams strengthen their emotional intelligence. Hands On’ is the best!"
--Kathy Yeager, SPHR, vice president, human resources, The Medical Center of Aurora
"Wow! What an invaluable resource on Emotional Intelligence. The format is very user-friendly and the use of icons makes it easy to flip through to find exactly what you need at any given time. The matrix cross-referencing the competencies of the four major measures of Emotional Intelligence is incredible and enables use of the exercises regardless of measure utilized. The Star Performer pieces will help people really understand the competencies in action and the movie examples make it fun and help to bring the competencies to life. This guide also contains valuable information that can be used to "sell" Emotional Intelligence programs to senior leaders including the case study information and the power piece. The Reproducible Masters also make this an inestimable training resource on Emotional Intelligence. As a Leadership Development Manager for a Fortune 100 company, I will definitely use this with internal client groups."
--Deanna Coffin, Manager, Leadership Development
