Format: Hardcover
Emotional intelligence has been much talked about in the last few years. This book goes beyond the hype and gives practical suggestions for developing one's own emotional intelligence at work.Hendrie Weisinger, a psychologist and organizational consultant, defines emotional intelligence as the ability to "intentionally make your emotions work for you by using them to help guide your behavior and thinking in ways that enhance your results." Weisinger contends that EI can be nurtured, developed, and augmented. He proves his point by providing processes and exercises to help the reader develop self-awareness, manage emotions, motivate self, communicate effectively, develop interpersonal expertise, and help others help themselves.Weisinger writes in an easy to read, straightforward style. His approach is practical. This makes it especially useful for those responsible for delivering EI training. This is not a book about EI research but a manual for making EI work in the workplace. An added bonus is that developing your EI will also strengthen your personal relationships. If your interest is in becoming more emotionally intelligent or helping others to do so, then reading this book would be an intelligent choice.

The attention to "emotional intelligence" started with Daniel Goleman's book "Emotional Intelligence" published in 1995. Although an excellent book, this Weisinger book is a better guide to how to USE emotional intelligence. It is full of practical exercises and real world examples. I have used it when I teach the subject and would recommend it if you really want to change and learn new responses when the going gets tough, not just think about it. Best wishes to all who are trying to develop these difficult skills. It ain't easy, but this book makes it easier. A good guide.

Format: Hardcover
Emotional Intelligence at Work is an excellent book that teaches people to learn how to take step back, take a deep breath, listen to yourself and listen to others. Techniques to difuse volatile situations between you and your work colleagues. Turn an aggressive confontation into a useful fact gathering session to get to the real source of the problem. Do you know what words to use and sentence structure to apply in order to be direct without attacking or creating a threatning situation with your counterpart? Do you want people to listen to you when you talk? All of these fantastic techniques are found here.
One has to really concentrate and use these techniques daily in order for them to work. I was actually surprised to see the majority of them work "live in action". This text should be mandatory from grade school to the university level.
The author Ph.D. Hendrie Weisinger is a psychologist who uses many different work place examples from his numerous seminars. In many of these situations it is possible for people to see themselves in the characters and the situations that are being portrayed. It is an excellent book for anybody.

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By A. Polson on August 18, 2006
Format: Paperback
I feel that this is a terrific book on a very hard subject. A mentor of mine recently told me that it's the "soft" skills that are the "hardest" to learn. This is a great book on the hard soft skill of emotional intelligence.

When reading the negative reviews I am reminded on my inital reaction to this book. I originally felt that this was all common sense and why should I waste my time on it. That was the key to my problem, it is crucial to understand that we all need to develop our EQ along side our IQ. After all, IQ gets you hired, EQ gets you promoted.

Read it, but not without admitting you need it.

Format: Paperback
I've found Weisinger's book to be a nice, practical self-guide in how to realize the fruits of good research in schools of management and organizational psychology. This goes under the label of "emotional intelligence" or "EQ." It's a way to get at what managers long have referred to as "people skills" and "soft skills" and so on. Weisinger begins from the premise that this is important stuff. He suggests ways a person can strive to improve one's personal touch and human connectedness within the organizational world of work. This book is a good find.
