Publisher's Summary

Emotional intelligence (EI) has been called "advanced common sense" and is proven to be a far better predictor of success than IQ. And unlike cognitive function, your emotional capacities are flexible, adaptable, and highly expandable. Filled with inspir­ing stories from companies who have tapped into the power of EI, along with profiles of people facing real-world dilemmas and easy-to-implement action plans, The Other Kind of Smart opens your eyes to crucial, yet often ignored, life lessons, including how to:
Handle conflicts in a way that brings people closer together and learn why disengage­ment is the real worry. Become in tune with the full range of your emotions and transform them from your enemies to your allies. Move beyond thinking of success in monetary terms to discover what you really want to accomplish, then actively work to achieve your goals. Build healthy personal and professional relationships, the cornerstone of happiness and fulfillment. Use your emotional intelligence to effectively navigate change and cope with stress. Cultivate optimism and other mental habits of happy people-while avoiding a limited "Pollyanna" outlook.
EI is not a sideline, soft issue, but a critical factor in your personal and professional well-being. The Other Kind of Smart uncovers deep insights and simple strategies for building the life you want.
