The idea of Emotional Intelligence is sweeping across the country, and this is the book that tells you how to put it into action in business. We all know there is more to success than IQ, or raw brain power. Executives with a strong EQ, or emotional Quotient, as well as a strong IQ, are the ones who makes the best decisions, the most dynamic businesses, and the most satisfying and successful lives. Drawing on groundbreaking research, Robert Cooper lays down the four cornerstones of emotional intelligence — a working model he developed in association with Ayman Sawaf, executive and chairman of the Foundation for Education in Emotional Literacy. Included in this book is the EQ Map™, the first extensively researched, nationally norm-tested, statistically reliable measure of Emotional Intelligence. With the commitment to more effectivew business, Executive EQ offers a wealth of practical application techniqques and memorable stories to bring new life and opportunity to the workplace.

If you believe in EQ, sure, but it is very boring. The EQ-map is one of the appendices.
