Book Description

31 Mar 2009 New Rules
If you have not heard of emotional intelligence or EQ what planet have you landed from? You may be sick of people bleating on and on about EQ. But it is undoubtedly true that being intelligent is not enough to get you ahead at work anymore. You also have to be emotionally intelligent. In this savvy book, business psychologist Rob Yeung explains succinctly and accessibly the rules to behaving in an emotionally intelligent way. Far from being pure psychobabble, EQ is about finding out what makes others tick and can be highly effective. What are their hot buttons? Once you know what buttons to push, you can make people tick in ways that will help you out at work and in your career.

Emotional Intelligence: The New Rules

I have just finished reading Emotional Intelligence: The New Rules by Rob Yeung. I found this an interesting, thought provoking book. Rob endears himself to the reader in the first few pages when he says that he wants to provide succinct, practical guidance on emotional intelligence rather than string out a few ideas over hundreds of pages and bore the reader to death. Instead, he provides a clear introduction to the concept of emotional intelligence and covers three main themes:

* Self-awareness
* Self-direction
* Interpersonal savvy

These are explained and explored in sufficient detail to make the reader think about their own actions and approaches to work and social interactions and encourage the reader to reflect upon how they could work and live smarter by changing their approach and demonstrating emotional intelligence.

I particularly like the way Rob writes as he does not patronise the reader but encourages him/her to believe they can succeed in work and domestic life by adopting a few key principles.

A highly recommended read for anyone looking to improve the way they communicate with, listen to, and engage with others.
