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.
Actually, I even bougth a second copy to give it to interested collegues.
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
I love the book. I have gone through several copies that I've carried with me on the road, all marked up and dog-eared from heavy use trying to integrate some of the elements into my classes. I've also given away numerous copies of the book to students.
The vast majority of my students "get it." They truly understand that emotional intelligence (EQ or Emotional Quotient) and social intelligence (SQ or Social Quotient) are woefully lacking in many leaders. And they understand that if they want to advance in their careers, EQ and SQ are key.
The book is now more than 14 years old and, while I'd love to see a revised edition with some more current stories, the material in the book is really evergreen.
As a side note, I don't know what another reviewer was talking about with their remark about the book being very academic. It's anything but. It's full of real-world stories, examples, quotes, and ideas from corporations large and small.
