Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Studies have shown that the most intelligent people are often not that successful in their personal lives. As Cooper (The Performance Edge, Houghton, 1991) and executive/entrepreneur Sawaf demonstrate, that principle applies in business as well. The authors argue that business success depends on "emotional intelligence"?a quality that "enables you to be authentic and true to your best self; to be clear and get along;...and to sense opportunities and create the future." Filled with examples from major businesses, their book includes an "EQ map" that lets readers measure their own relative strengths and weaknesses across many emotional intelligence characteristics. Both entertaining and informative, this book should enlighten all workers. Highly recommended.?Kathy E. Shimpock, Muchmore & Wallwork Lib., Phoenix

Damn good book.....!

I just bought a new book to share with clients because my paperback is so dog-eared and marked up.

I was very concerned, whether "Emotional Intelligence" can be descibed with words.

Reading through this book, I found myself repeatedly saying, "yes, that's exactly how I feel", or "ha! that's the way things ought to be.". This book clearly indicates what is wrong with the work culture of today. It also explains why, despite making good money, people still feel unsatisfied or incomplete. It gives you a good understanding of how to be a more complete and honest person/employee/manager. A must read for all those who are caught up in today's "intellectual and rationality first" work culture. A must read for all those who feel they are doing good, challenging, rewarding work and yet feel an immense sense of emptiness/hopelessness. Damn good book.....!

Robert Cooper's book is heads above all the other enmotional intelligence books on the market. The others empahasize to much theory. This author is heavy on practical proven approaches that are based on people be authentic with one another and working together. Granted this book may not be for those who don't have the guts to push themelves to grow to heights not even mentioned in typical management theories. Honesty, putting the customer first, being genuinine, etc... have all but become extinct today. Robert Cooper's book issue's a challenge to all of us. To be the best means competing against your own standards so you can best serve your customers first and making a profit helps you do that better. Bravo Dr. Cooper.

Format: Hardcover
Warning: This review could be biased as I reviewed the manuscript for authors before it was published.
Executive EQ addresses some of the questions I had when I completed reading Goleman's book on Emotional Intelligence (EI). I learned that EI could be increased but how? What practical suggestions can I give my clients? While I love the philosophy and theory behind it, my clients who are executives in Forture 500 companies sometimes need tools and process steps. Executive EQ did address many questions about the application of EI in business and integrated it with philosophical anecdotes leaving me with deeper insights. This book also validates and legitimizes some of the practices leaders already use like use of intuition in decision making. The book is organized into four cornerstones with each section divided into very readable four chapters and each chapter flowing nicely from one to another. Overall, I am quite impressed and recommend it highly to business executives. I bought 10 copies and gave to my clients and so far every one of them liked the book!
EQ Map (enclosed in the book) is an effective tool to measure where one stands and I am glad that it is not a number like IQ. I did find out that there is a more refined version of EQ is available through Q-Metrics and am looking forward to using this instrument with my clients.

I was very concerned, whether "Emotional Intelligence" can be descibed with words. Especially, when many authors tend to praise themselves and how important their subject is. However, this book is as good as it gets! Even chapters like "Intuitive Flow" are concrete and easy to understand. Furthermore, many examples and citations are taken from bussiness cases and really help to connect the topic with your working life.
Actually, I even bougth a second copy to give it to interested collegues.

One of the interesting ironies of our time is that, almost in parallel with the shift to a knowledge-based society, we are discovering to what extent our effectiveness depends not on knowledge and intellect, but on heart and feelings. The wide range of self-management and interpersonal skills identified for success in a knowledge-based environment is but another bit of indirect evidence for the importance of emotional intelligence in the workplace.
Cooper and Sawaf's Executive EQ is a pioneering effort to move our understanding of emotional intelligence to the level of practical application. It provides both valuable insights and practical tools for anyone interested in exploring how individuals and organizations can develop emotional intelligence as a way to enhance success in the workplace.
Executive EQ has two outstanding features. The first is that provides an integrated framework for understanding how emotional intelligence impacts effectiveness in work and life. Executive EQ adopts a four

Format: Paperback
This should be a must-read for all people in their late 20's who are ready to take that next step into adulthood. This book taught me a lot about myself and showed me the experiences and problems I've had lately have been problems people and organizations have gone through for years. I learned to trust my intuition, go with my gut, understand my own feelings, and, most importantly, I now have a clear understanding of other people's feelings. Emotions and feelings drive the human spirit, not formulas and procedures. I had been trained that emotions were bad for decisions, but you can't make a decision without emotions. Above all else, this book shows to be successful in life, IQ is helpful, but EQ is the secret. THIS IS A MUST READ !!!!
